Oh Dear..........

I think I lost the rest of July & August. Busy, busy!

In July I joined in with the Tour De Fleece over at Ravelry - it was a lot of fun to join in and spin a bit of fiber every single day.

I finished off my intended jumper spin - 20oz of Portuguese wool from Corgi Hill Farm.

The colour ways are Fog and Whiskey Barrel - one ply of each (2ply). I used a faux rolag method way of prepping my fiber to spin it light and lofty. It was my first time of spinning long draw and I quite enjoyed it.

I ended up with approximately 1621m at around 12-14wpi. Though I haven't decided on a pattern for it yet........
I like the look of my swatch.

Will post about my other TDF spins at a later date :)
