I've spun a lot of fiber since the Tour de Fleece started, and about 9pm last night I realized I had enough to ply some. So naturally I did that, though to be fair the skein-winding part wasn't anything like so much as the time commitment winding anybody else's 100g. There seemed to be a dozen wraps around the swift at best for each piece. Not that I'm eying my spindle and wanting a bigger one (much.)
When I got the skeins all tied up, they went so twisty!
I soaked them in Soak Wash and hung them up to dry overnight with weights as I'd been advised to do, and in the morning - being so scant - they were almost ready to wind. Not quite, though, so I brought them outside for a bit.
And then I wound them.
Aren't they pretty? That's just about 100g of yarn there, and I still have a ton to spin.
When you've got that far it's hard to stop:
I used 4mm needles for this swatch, a treat for me with my loose tension, and I couldn't believe how much energy I can feel in the yarn as I work. I sure hope there's enough for a hat and a small scarf, because that's about all I can think about making with it, and I can hardly wait to get started.
