What a Beauty!

I bought a Matchless! After reading and reading everything I could about these wheels, I decided that it was exactly what I wanted - my dream wheel. It made its way across the ocean from Copper Moose in Vermont and arrived safely a few days before the school holidays finished lol I had a day or two playing with it before I was back at work and the kids were at school. It is a fantastic partner for the Traveller.

I haven't had much time to spin since she arrived, but I did put this on the wheel straight away and spun it as a 3ply.

It is ~8-9wpi and 187m. There is 19m of leftover chain ply at the same wpi. Fiber is BFL/Silk (75/25) from Corgi Hill Farm.

I have just realised that I haven't even blogged once this year, and we are already close to the middle of March!

Excuse = lots of family/work/study time. I have been spinning though, so I shall go and dig up some photos to share to give you something pretty to look at.

A sample of 15 micron merino from Corgi Hill Farm - so pretty and soft.

And I just remembered I had something wonderful to share - so I will have to come back and post at a later date :)
