Steeks and Touring
I’ve been Tour De Fleecing still. The Freedom Flyer for my wheel came in so I made up some fun bulky yarns on it. I love it! I also spun my first proper sock yarn and I liked it way more than I thought I would. While I am more of a product knitter, I am totally a process spinner. Anyways, here are the yarns I’ve been spinning.
2-ply sock yarn from superwash merino/bamboo/nylon from Yarn Geek Fibers. This stuff was so easy to spin and gorgeous!
Some neon bits from no222 I carded together with some white merino and spun up. I autowrapped with some neon sparkly variegated (Seriously!) yarn. It’s pretty crazy/awesome.
This last one is from the Fiber Fancy Scott Pilgrim SAL. I picked Sex Bob-omb, and the batt and coordinating locks were beautiful! I spun up the batt first, and then spun the locks up trying to keep some of their amazing texture. I plied them together and added a fine copper thread.
I finally finished knitting my Lopi Jacket! I steeked it yesterday, so all I have left to do is deal with ends and the crochet button band. Which will wait, because the weather is back to being hot. I love how the Lett Lopi is doubled but with two different colours to give this sweater real depth.
