|Ignore the hat underneath -- that was just to keep the bobbin from rolling|
In addition to that great start, I finished up another skein that was in progress. I finally finished up the Targhee singles I had been spinning for about two weeks on Friday night, and I plied them up last night and this morning. Here's the skein before it got a good soak:
I'll share some final pictures when it's dry, but I'm very pleased with it even fresh off the wheel.
Meanwhile, though I have been good about getting some fiber out of the stash, I've also had some new fiber come into it this past week.
This is the October shipment of the Southern Cross Fibre club, a colorway called Dot. I got the classic club, which this month was on Bond -- one of my favorites. I braided up the fiber to see how the colors will mix together and I really like them. This reminds me a lot of some of the colors the leaves are changing this time of year, so it feels appropriate for an October shipment. I'm not sure that I'll be spinning this up right away (I'm tempted to, but I think I should focus on my sweater spin for now), but I've certainly been giving it some good squeezes.
