Well, I finally got to start plying the mohair and silk singles in boucle - seeing it had been over a decade since I plied in boucle, it was a slow start. This is about 1/2 of each bobbin - as the mohair will be longer, I spun about 1 1/2 times as much mohair as silk/merino. Enjoying the freedom of my new Ashford Jumbo flyer!
I wouldn't say it's my best work, but I'm really enjoying the challenges I've set myself for the Tour de Fleece!
Because I was out spinning with a friend, I didn't want to start plying, so I took some of my next fibre - the fine Falkland wool I got in my swap parcel from the New Zealand Fibre Swap group on Ravelry. Bright? I'm thinking it might be a good yarn for Stephen West's Akimbo scarf.
