Wasn't too bad of one! I didn't spin many skeins as I had wanted to, but I spun almost every day and have something to show for it. It didn't help that I injured my right wrist/elbow by tripping over a non-existent curb LOL! No broken bones thank goodness, but just extra resting time I didn't want :(
Anyhow, here is the loot!
I had previously spun 2 bobbins before the tour. As you can see I finished bobbin 3, plied 2 skeins worth of 3-ply, spun a mini skein of 2 ply, and still had some on a bobbin so I practiced my n-ply. The fiber was 6 oz. total, so I had divided evenly...just didn't spin evenly.
Fatcatknits Merino/Bamboo Blend 6oz.
218 yds of 3-ply sport
28 yds of 2-ply sport
4 yds of n-ply DK
Here's the before picture of the FCK, awesomely soft fiber to spin and I have 2 more braids of another colorway :)
In between bobbins of another spin, I wanted something fast and mindless.
Two if By Hand SW BFL in Public Market
300 yds of fingering singles
As you can see it was a gradient and I spun it right from the braid just like it is. Will be interesting to see what turns out from it ;)
My favorite color spin was this Falkland. I get pretty good yardage with it...
Nest Fiber Studio Falkland in Gaga Air
190 yds of n-ply (faux 3 ply) of dk/light worsted. Stay tuned, you'll be seeing this on the needles before the weekend. Not the yardage I was hoping for, but if you times it by 3 for a 3-plied yarn, I didn't do too bad.
Here's a shot of those gorgeous colors here!
Cupcake Fiber Company BFL/Nylon
I finally got over my fear of the batt. These batts are awesome! You open up a cupcake, tear it up and spin away. Wonderfully prepped and easy to spin. Go get yourself some!!
Unfortunately, due to my being sidelined on/off I didn't get to finish these for the tour.
As you can see, they are much darker IRL ;) Make me drool for chocolate when I spun though! This was my first of *cough* many cupcake purchases. At the time I didn't know BFL would be my worst fiber to spin yardage wise. It's my nemesis, I'll get better at it. Hoping to at least make a pair of ankle socks with the handspun. We'll see :D
