Bobbin One Done

I've completed the first bobbin in my le Tour de Fleece challenge. So far I think it's pretty good. We'll see how it looks when I ply it. The single could be more consistent but on the whole I am happy with it. I've been checking the twist pretty often and I am hoping it has enough twist. When I ply I never know what to expect.

I didn't fill the first bobbin to capacity because I want the yarn to fit onto one bobbin when I ply it. We'll see if I manage that soon enough. I've started the second bobbin and I hope to get it done by early next week.

Aren't these two skeins of yarn gorgeous? It's laceweight that I bought from Oceanwind Knits. I bought one skein of lace at the Frolic and I've been waiting for more stock ever since. Kimberly knit the Oyster Bay shawl with the Ice Blue colour and it is gorgeous. Purple being my favourite colour I couldn't resist the Vino as well. Now I just have to decide what they want to become.

On the knitting front, I've started tier 16 on the Forest Path Stole. I have a spinning class this Saturday and I'll probably hang out at the Purple Purl after the class so I'll take the stole along and see how much knitting will get done.
