I actually got quite a bit done over the weekend, considering I was feeling sickish and had two kids running around (which Michael wrangled much of the time, I so do not deserve that man). Here are some fiber photos of about half of what I worked on.
Fortunately a couple of rinses fixed that skein, thankfully.
After thwacking and drying, they looked a bit more presentable and less like soup.
This is more Shetland from the same UK source.
I Navajo plied this skein and ended up with a very sturdy, dense yarn. Not sure if this technique suits it.
That is all the news that’s fit to print for now.
