Handspun Friday - Spring Birch

I'm a little late posting today, but there is a reason why. We have Jamie back, the guy who built our new kitchen, to replace a panel, which has severe cracks in it (the panel where the oven, and the microwave is in). It's supposed to take four hours, I hope not.

This weeks handspun yarn is no surprise, concerning the fiber to yarn look.

It looks pretty much the same.

I was hoping to spin this thin, and get at least 400yds, but it was not to be. This is 50% Merino/50% Tencel fiber, and was very slippery to spin. So I only got 341yds, 2-ply. Sigh. I bought this fiber from somebody's destash. I spun this back in February.

This is what I got done in March:

Can you find Happy in this picture? He's in his hide-out.

And just because he's so cute when he's sleeping:

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Your march progress looks so great. I especially love the one in the middle next to the dark clay colored one. :) Do the dogs each have their own couch? LOL

Your spinning is lovely :) The tencel is a bit tricky, but it has a wonderful shine in the end!
