Once I finally unpacked my wheel and found all of my spinning stuff I decided to finish the super wash I was spinning back in the North. Pretty much I had a bit left over to Andean ply and I needed to wash and finish it etc. I ended up with right around 225 yards of a dk weight yarn. It is not nearly as even or as fine as I had wished. However, it is nice and squishy. I will have to start searching Rav for some patterns I can spin with it.
The best part about living in the desert is that when I hang a hank of my hand spun to dry even in the shade of our porch, it is dry within hours. No more waiting days.
So once I was finished with this yarn, I decided to go stash diving. I have several month of my fiber club that I have not spun up yet. Mostly because I was spinning the Blueberry and also because I was trying to decided what to use it for. I pondered the possibilities. I have more BFL which is a dark color, some Corridale, Targhee, and I just got some more Wenslydale. I decided to try to the Targhee.
My intent was to see just how thin of a single I could evenly spin on My Louet. I took my time and loosened my break band and went to work. It was one of the most enjoyable spins I have done yet. The fiber was a dream to work with. I was spinning lace weight singles and they were mostly consistent. I only had 3 oz of this fiber and I have been told that Targhee is beautiful with Cables, so I decided I would experiment with a 3 ply. To go off topic…. I LOVE 3 plys. They are beautiful and round and even. Unfortunately, they eat up yardage! So, after all was said and done I ended up with a beautiful 3 ply skein of a heavy fingering weight with about 158 yards and some smaller Navajo plied skeins that brought my yardage up to about 200. What to do with 200 yards of fingering weight?
