This fleece has literally taken years to finish. If that seems ridiculous , it might be. I didn’t have a lot of free time in Florida to devote to all the reading and practice that is require when one wants to learn a new skill and doesn’t have a teacher or mentor. I may have gotten a bad fleeced too, with lots of second cuts, but I am not an expert on what is ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Maybe in a few more years I’ll have that experience.
Here it is! 10 skeins in all it’s glory. Two ply, approximately 10 wraps per inch, woolen prepared (on a drum carder) and woolen spun. It’s quite and arm full, I can’t hold them all without dropping at least one skein.
I have learned to WRITE IT ALL DOWN. Those white cards are just index cards that I have written down all that information and more. You might be tempted to think “I’ll remember that! It took so long to do, how could I forget?” You’d be wrong. Details like this get deleted from our memory cashe and good luck figuring out what you did!
2077 has proclaimed the yarn to be his future sweater that I must knit for him. Geeze, a little demanding, huh? I’d love to do it, but since I’m also not a great knitter, I’d need a nice basic pattern to follow. One more thing on the ‘to-do list’.
