I've gotten into the habit of spinning fiber in 4 oz. lots. After all, fiber is very often sold in lots that size, and that amount of fiber will fit comfortably on my bobbins. It makes sense. However, the system breaks down somewhat because I'm also in the habit of buying fiber in 8 oz. lots. Very often I lose interest in spinning the second 4 oz. by the time I've finished the first.Crown Mountain Farms sells many of their fibers in 8 oz. lots, so it isn't surprising that I had a couple of half bumps of fiber lying around. I decided to take pity on them and spin them up.Fiber: Crown Mountain Farms Bluefaced Leicester, "Shala"3 ply390 yards105 gramsI absolutely loved the first skein I spun out of this, so I actually started on the second skein within a few weeks of finishing the first. Since I had spun the first skein a bit thicker than I really wanted, I didn't try to make the second skein match in weight. It's a good thing, too, because they're definitely fraternal in color. Skein #1 is undeniably blue and brown, while skein #2 is also blue and brown, but with an almost purplish cast. Both are nice hanks of yarn, but they're more than subtly different.Next up is some Corriedale I spun in response to a request.Fiber: Crown Mountain Farms Corriedale pencil roving, "Finding Rainbows"2 ply536 yards110 gramsI gave the first skein to my friend Angeluna for her birthday in July. When I casually mentioned that I had more of the same fiber, her eyes lit up, and she asked if I could possibly spin up the rest for her. Well, I can't say no to a friend, so when my spinning queue became empty last week, I immediately thought of this.The problem, of course, is that this second skein is a bit finer than the first (420 yards vs. 536 yards from the same weight of fiber). This is what I get for spinning this immediately after doing a fine 3 ply yarn. What do you think, Angeluna? Still interested?
