Finished the bobbin of the unknown gray fiber last night, got out the wool & silk I will be plying it with and think that it will do nicely. The bobbin on the right is the just finished.
With the gray finished got out and prepped the next bundle of superwash merino, broke off pieces 18-20 inches and laid them out carefully, ready to grab with all going in the right direction. From the pix it looks like a jumbled mess but each piece is ready to grab & spin. Am right on schedule for what I had planned for the TdeF, even took time to ply the Sherwood wool & silk mix, will be getting it into skeins this morning while still cool.
With a fire now burning at Punzi (not that far as the crow flies) I'm sure my valley will fill with smoke. Today and tomorrow are the last two hot days for awhile, then back to normal temps with even a bit of rain in the forecast, and that will be most welcome.
