Three on Thursday, Spinning Edition

I'm borrowing today's title from my friend Kat, who does a "Three on Thursday" post every week. It seemed a fitting title for today's post given that I now have three completed bobbins of Charollais singles!

I finished up the last one last night and added onto it the leftover singles from the first skein (which I had very thoughtfully wound off from the bobbins and tucked into the bag with the completed skein and remaining fiber) so that I can use up as much as possible. As tempting as it is to get right into plying these, I think I will let them sit on the bobbins one more day to take a break from this project and work on my other Tour de Fleece project for a bit.

Meanwhile, I did step away from the wheel briefly last night to work on my handspun Boxy, which is so close to completion I can taste it.

I believe I have something like 65 rounds left to knit on the second sleeve, and the only finishing I'll need to do once that sleeve is complete is weave in the sleeve's two ends and block (and boy does this need a serious blocking!). If I ignored my spinning for a couple of evenings, I have no doubt I'd get it done, but I know that's not likely to happen. I'm pretty sure that I can knock out the rest of the sleeve by the end of the weekend, though, so with any luck, next Tuesday's post will be a big FO post!

The weekend ahead is supposed to be hot, humid, and rainy, so I won't feel guilty for hiding in the air conditioning inside and crafting for most of it.


  1. I love your three things! And, your Boxy is stunning! And, inspiring!!

    1. Thank you! I hope you don't mind my borrowing of your title. ;-)
