30.5 ounces of assorted lovelies from Briar Rose Fibers, a birthday present from my mom (thanks, mom!).
That breaks down into 11.5 ounces of Polwarth,
9 ounces of BFL,
6.5 ounces of Wensleydale,
and 3.5 ounces of cormo.
That's doable, right?
And I don't just want to spin. I'm also looking forward to learning more about these different fibers and the sheep they come from. To help with that, I got this with my latest Amazon order
What an amazing resource! Take a look at the entry on Finnsheep:
Breed info; a description of the fleece; and tips for spinning, knitting, and weaving. Plus samples of the fiber spun, knitted, and woven. This book is worth its weight in gold (and a steal at the $23 or so it costs on Amazon).
Don't think I've neglected my knitting needles in my excitement for the Tour. Rock Island continues to grow.
It's the perfect project for this week. We're doing sleep training with Ms. Tadpole and sometimes all I can do is work the simple garter stitch of this shawl. On the plus side, I have some extra time to knit. I may actually finish this one soon!
