(You must admit that not knowing what kind of fleece or when, exactly, you turned it into rolags is a sign that I should be spinning more!)
After working on it for a while, I decided to run the rolags through my carder (the rolags were pretty flat by now) and, lo and behold, when I pulled out the carder, I found a large bag of shetland fleece.
|Three flat batts of Shetland|
Possibly the first fleece that Mr. Daisy ever bought me at Shepherd's Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival!
The "un-rolaged" bag is 10 ounces and the (now carded and spun up a bit) bag of rolags is 4 ounces.
|Here's the former rolags carded up into batts.|
So, I've pretty much got the rest of the Tour de Fleece laid out before me. Shetland fleece, good to go!
I was going to call this post "Why you shouldn't knit at the movies."
|The knife is strictly for effect!|
I started this on the ride home from Mount Rushmore but then, I finished it at the movies.
Unfortunately, when I got home, I discovered that I had made a mistake. A big one so, time to frog it back.
