TDF 2012 — Day One

Standard

Look at me, getting this post in right before midnight here. Today was pretty laid back, and I probably should think about ramping it up but hey. Whatevs.

First, I busted a move and did 2 ounces of Scatness I had left, and got this lovely three ply out of it:

No idea yardage, gonna wash then measure.

And then I processed all the chocolatey brown out of that fleece I bought at the Iowa Sheep and Wool Fest this year:

They are as soft as they look. This year I’ll be mostly carding because the staple on the CVM isn’t particularly long enough to do combing. I don’t really mind it; it’s got a different rhythm and if I load properly it’s pretty relaxing too. I’m planning on making a sample for spinning first thing tomorrow since this is going to be sweater yarn, and start processing the silver next.

How’s your tour so far?

PS–

Here’s the fleece again for reference:
