TDF 2012 – Days 5-8

Standard

Radio silence on Tour? I think not! S was in town so I was a bit more quiet on the tour front, and I feel like I’m making nooo progress. But then I took a photo of what I’ve done so far and feel a bit better.

Anyway, I worked primarily on the silvery CVM, and so it’s gone from this:

into this:

The skein photo is pretty spot on for the actual colour of the yarn. I’m very pleased with this, even if I should have let it rest longer before plying so it didn’t break so much. Next skein of CVM I’m just gonna bite the bullet and swap flyers for a higher ratio.

So for my first weekish of the Tour, I have done ALL THIS wow:

Isn’t that cool? I haven’t counted any yardages, and won’t till later I think. The green spindle is still getting added to, mostly at work/on the go because I like to be able to get some spinning done even if one evening is spent primarily processing.

In non-Tour news, I tried out those tube watercolours I got, and I can safely say I’m pretty intrigued. I think my palette is slightly more blue than I want, but I’m planning on picking up a tube of more yellow green this upcoming Saturday and a brighter yellow to help balance it out. First painting is very pleasing: I made a snail.

SNAIL.
