2023 Spin de Fleece

Here is my fiber stash for SdF23. I am starting with the pink and weighed the bobbin that I will be continuing to spin my gray singles on.

and 2nd pic is Spin #1 of my combo/fade project that I finished up yesterday (not washed yet.)

I spun 4 hours this morning.

Started up with the gotland teeswater…

Finished the singles for the gotland… will let this rest and do the chainply tomorrow.

Moved on to start the singles on my blue. I don’t like spinning this as well as the gotland because it has silk in it and it is sticky… not as fine a single…thicker and more easily broken if i get too thin.

Day 1
I only got an hour and 42 minutes in and 26 grams. Started with some Merino/Nylon to practice spinning fine (should save that for my challenge day!) My fingers got sore so I switched to some WOTA. My husband informed me Friday that we were having a cookout today instead of Tuesday, so I spent a good deal of time mowing and some food shopping. For some reason, I felt really tired and took a nap, which is really rare for me. Now today I find out it’s just going to be my MIL and auntie, so it’ll be a low-key day.
I got my Greenwood Fiberworks order in the mail already, so that will be next after I finish one of the bobbins I started

I also was able to get two batches of fiber in the Inglenook update yesterday. I’ll show you when they arrive.

Finally a finished (even washed and dried) yarn. Approx 408 yds of 2-ply. Very happy with this spin and think it will be enough for the Same Thing Only Different shawl I have in mind. It is very very soft and drapey too.
