The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

It's July that must mean

Tour de Fleece is soon.
 This is White Romney.  I have already spun 3 bobbins of it and have 3 pounds left.  I will be spinning this on the CPW using the 30:1 whorl I got from Sistermaide.  I still haven't decided on the plying, must sample.
 This is the remainder of the gray Romney from last year.  there are 20 ounces left.
 Dragon Blood from Pucker Brush Farm.  2 pound of a wool/alpaca/rayon mix in shades of red and purple.  Just luscious stuff and I can't wait to sample it.
Princess Blue merino/silk from Louet lovely blue/gray color, and soft, soft, soft. 8 ounces.

the T de F goal is to finish these, with  possible cotton on the Charkah.
