I spun this pencil roving last week, in record time for me (only about 3 days), it was such a joy to spin and very quick. This is a view of a partial of the 4 oz roving from Fiber Optic. It is Footnotes Unspun Pencil Roving, color Honelysuckle Rose.
I loved how the pencil roving split evenly into 2 balls, and needed very little pre-drafting. It felt like it was practically spinning itself. Here are the progress photos:
And, the finished skein. 400 yards of 2-ply, 80% Superwash Merino & 20% Nylon. Just about the squishiest skein of yarn that I have spun. Destined to become a pair for socks for ME! Sorry about the fuzzy photo. Time for a new camera I think.
Returned a little while ago from 1 1/2 days of classes with Nancy Bush. Photos and details tomorrow!
