Having finished spinning the fleece mamacate sent me and the electric blue that Pixel gave me some time ago to practice with, and the white (also from Pix), and having started the grey (yup, this is from Pix, too), that leaves me with the grey, the grey-brown (you’re getting the trend here, yes?), and the brown left. Not a full fleece of any of it, but enough to do a smidge and give me my fix.
I’m going to need more fleece. I had a little snatch of mohair from Carol that was absolutely soft and smooth and a little slippery, but dyed a gorgeous blue-green, so I might try to figure out where she got it. But at this point, I think I’m sufficiently hooked to ask for recommendations for fleece suppliers. So if you have any, drop a comment.
I’m mildly entertaining the idea of trying to spin enough yarn at some point to make a sweater. Of course, I have to learn to ply to do that I think, but it’s January, so that means I’ve got a whole 12 months in this year to make that happen. *smile*
In the meantime, tomorrow, the rigid heddle loom will get warped. I’m trying to decide if I should warp it with some crochet cotton stuff I have so that I don’t have to worry about too-thin or under-spun bits breaking. I don’t think the warp shows much in traditional weaving (I’m used to tablet weaving, where the warp is usually the *only* thing that shows), so I don’t think it will matter and it will likely give the finished piece a bit more structural integrity. *ponder*
Now it’s time to do my stretches and go finish Eragon.
