Update on Me & TDF Results
As for the Tour De Fleece, the surgery put a slight cramp in my overly ambitious plans. I did however finish the following:
9 Scrappy Batts approx 3oz each ~ 24oz. total
10 Yarns ~ 28oz. Total
Singles - Left Mystery roving ball, Right Trade Art Batt from Hobbledehoy (Liz.)
Singles - Roving balls from CJ Kopec Creations (Coby.)
Singles - From my own batts, Red/Blk/White twin to Liz's trade batt, Green twin to the batt I traded a fellow "Michigan Knitter," Vicky, for our new kitty Dukers, and a scrappy batt
Corespun - From my own batts, left plied with metallic cord, right with add-in flip-flops!
2lbs of dyed top, 1lb Polworth and 1lb BFL.
Overall 'FIBER' activity for the tour approx 5.25lbs! No too bad considering I was out of the race only a few days in. How did you do with your Tour Spinning goals?!
Private lessons are $30 per hour, with a 2 hour minimum (Can be split into 2 sessions if you prefer.) Email me to work out the details, JBenedictScott@aol.com
I specialize in spinning Bulky Singles, 2-plies, Navajo/Chain Plied, and Corespun yarns. I also can share my knowledge on needle felting, wet felting, nuno felting or weaving with a rigid heddle loom. My main area of expertise however is in fiber blending and drum carding. Please visit my etsy shop for examples of my work.
