Beehive Yarn

For the last three days of the Tour de Fleece, I have been trying to improve my ability to make beehive yarn.

I think I have gotten a bit better each day.

Today the mail came with some fiber loveliness. On the top left, the roving came from WC Mercantile. On the top right, the green roving came from Cosymakes. (It is much prettier in person) The bottom row is sampler from One of the Flock.

The few days ago I also got some really pretty roving I have had my eye on. The colorway is Oceanglass by Freckle Face Fibers.

Work has been going well. We had a fiber that I had to spin into bulky singles.

It was quite a job to set it all up behind the machine.

I am so impressed!!! I have avoided learning to spin but love the idea of it. Love to touch and feel it someday.
