Tour de Flax…

I know I said I would try to spin up that flax…but you know what they say SpinningMerinoabout the best laid plans of mice and men… well, that includes And after all…it’s called Tour de Fleece…  not Tour de Flax…

I have this luscious Merino chocolate … and I can’t help myself.  It just begs to be spun.  And it’s in pin roving… sigh  So I am hereby officially changing my goal.  (That flax will just have to continue waiting until I get a little more ambitious than I am right now. ;o)  My goal will be to have it spun and plied by the 26th. 

I’m not sure what I will be making with this, but I’m pondering some glommits for next winter. 



I bought some el cheapo acrylic yarn to try some weaving. Plaids are turning into my favorite pattern for weaving.  This project was to sample what some colors would look like together.  The Cotswold that I just finished spinning is destined to be woven, but the color selection for dyeing it was a mystery to me.  While I really like this, I’m still thinking more along the lines of multiple shades of blue…
