Stash Enhancement

Yarn Pirate had a small shop update the other day, and I took the opportunity to grab a few things.

First up- Neapolitan Woolies Kit.  Each mini-skein is 1oz.  Super cute!

I was lucky enough to catch the last Wollmeise update at the Loopy Ewe.  I snagged a skein of Lila Ludmilla, which is a quite lovely purple.

I’m also doing some spinning for the Tour de Fleece.  Here is my progress so far.

This is a Crown Mountain Farms superwash merino roving.  Colorway is Aqualung!  I spun it at a 12.5 to 1 ratio.  There are 490 yards of three ply, 80 yards of chain ply.  The second pic is a close-up of the three ply.  Turned out pretty nice.

The next two are my try at a worsted three ply.  The turquoise is a little uneven, but the chocolate is much more consistent.  I’ve still got a half a bobbin of the chocolate, and a natural white targhee to spin.  Then I’ll ply them and hope for the best.
