And now, onto the WIP...yes, you read that correctly: WIP, singular. I am still doing a lot of super-secret knitting at the moment and I have made very little progress on my neglected chevron socks, so a progress photo isn't even worth sharing. However, my handspun kerchief has grown considerably since last week - in fact, I think it's approaching "shawl" status! The plan is just to knit til I run out of yarn!
Besides secret knitting, I spent some time this weekend making preparations for the Tour de Fleece. My friend Lauren broke out her drum carder and we brought every bit of random fiber we've collected over the years and spent an afternoon making batts!
|This is just some of the fiber we used to make our batts.|
|Checking my progress - the red fiber is some Alpaca I dyed myself |
and the grey stripe is some natural grey Lincoln fleece.
|Pulling off my first batt.|
|Voila! Fluffy goodness!|
