Ep 227: Technology, Clutter--We're So Off Topic!

Marsha Failor

Our Summer Spin In is underway and we talk about our plans for spinning over the summer. What will you be spinning? We announce the winners of our Out-of-Hibernation-Along. Plus, it's the Two Ewes, so you know there’ll be a rant or two and we'll get off topic!

Finished Spinning

2+ ounces of Polwarth and silk and 1+ ounce of merino spirit fiber spun and plied. Plied them together and then plied the rest of the Polwarth/silk on itself. Lace Weight 2-ply and a nice quick spin. 

2+ ounces of a Lincoln cross from spirit fiber. 2-ply to add to my rug yarn stash.
