Sue was so kind and offered me her Koigu in the same colorway, but different dye lot for exchange, but I've decided against using a different dye lot. Thank you very much, Sue! I appreciate it!
So for the next day or two, I will knit on and knit some more fringes. It will get exciting when it comes to braiding them and pick up all those stitches again. I'll let you know how it goes! ;o)
Meantime, I finished spinning the fibre from hell! That's right, I said it. This is 4 oz of Lincoln fibre, single spun. I didn't want to spent any more time on it as necessary. The initial start was horrible, but it got better to manage. This is a very fuzzy and rough fibre in my opinion. Nothing to cuddle up to or rub against your bare skin. So I decided to use it for felting some day. I DO love the colors though.
I've put it on my Niddy Noddy and soaked it in water as it was. Then I let it dry in the sun for fast results. I really didn't care what happened to this fibre. I think I have to smooth the wook of the Niddy Noddy now, it was unfinished. Not a smart move, but what's done is done. There was no overtwist to start with, and now it looks O.K. to me. Can you see the fuzz in the picture below?
This was Spunky Fibre Club August installation "Harvest Haze". I didn't measure it, but it's 4 oz. I'm glad it's off my wheel now, because I want to finish my wool/mohair I've started and fill two more bobbins as quickly as possible, so I can move on to nicer roving. The next installment for the fibre club will be here in a couple of weeks, can't wait to see what's coming.
