TDF Days 5 – 9

I got a little bit behind with posting pictures of my Tour De Fleece progress.  I finished spinning the singles for the Babydoll Southdown and I am now half way through the singles for the Dorset Corriedale X.

On the carding front, all the turquoise Jacob is done!  I have now started on the magenta Jacob.  This time I am trying to make fluffy rolags and see how differently they spin to the punis I prepared from the other fibers.

TDF Day 3: More of the Same

Here is the progress I made as of this morning:

TDF Day 3: More Spinning and Carding

Spinning Babydoll and carding Jacob

The spindle is now empty again as I am half way through spinning the Babydoll-Southdown and I want to make a 2-ply yarn. I also realized that I might be nearly half way through carding the torquoise Jacob too. Which is about on target as each are 1/3rd of my target, so being 1/6th of the way through by the end of today would mean I might even get everything done!

My spinning of the Babydoll had definitely improved; either that or the rolags lower in the bag were better prepared. Babydoll is different to any other fiber I have spun before and I am excited to see what the final yarn will look like.
