Tour de Fleece - Day 22

I wound my yarn onto the niddy noddy this morning and am delighted with the yardage. I have about 560 metres to play around with. I think I know what it's going to become, but I just need to check on the wpi before making a final decision. Then I'll spill the beans! The skein has been soaked and is currently hanging up to dry.

It feels really silky and I think the bamboo is going to give the yarn a gorgeous drape. Here's the skein pre-soaking.

I also got round to soaking all the little skeins for my Sheep Heid. I colour coded each skein so that I'd be able to identify them afterwards. I've printed out the pattern now and will try to match up my colours with the suggested ones. I'm keen to make a start on this once the Tour de Fleece is over. Here they all are drying in the shower room!

I have some rather lovely fibre from Picperfic that I'm going to play around with for the last day of the Tour. It feels rather delicious. Florence thinks so too! xxx

This is really gorgeous! I love the rich colour. You've spun so, so evenly. Look forward to seeing what you are going to make. I really must get going with my wheel this summer. See you soon. Rosx
