Card into batts
Batts into Roving
Spin into yarn!
Lest you think I worked on this 24 hours a day all weekend, this is the tally. All the fiber has been washed from Thursday through tonight. The last batch of 3 mesh bags is drying outside overnight and a total of 9 bags altogether.. About 3-4 oz. has been carded into batts and 1 1/2 oz. has been spun into single ply yarn. Believe me, I have a long way to go to finish this fleece, but at least I have a record and sampling of how long it took me and what the yarn is like. It is not really as soft as it may look, so it will be suitable to outerwear, felting and accessories. I may even give dying a try since there will be so much of it and it is such a neutral color. My plan at this point is to 2-ply it to a worsted weight and then measure and weigh the final product before deciding what it will become.
With the three day weekend, I even managed two walks, 2 loads of laundry, a couple of movies, some reading, and more general relaxing. I guess what they say is true: you get more done when you have lots to do. Or something like that.
