The end results of Fiber preparation

Whether that is dyeing or washing, combing or spinning, the feeling of accomplishment is there. I finished both the Vernal Equinox shawl and a beaded cowl with the locks I got in February.

This is the shawl. It is a nice large size and very comfortable to wear.

Here it is blocking...

And there's is the cowl, showing the entire process from start to finish:

  1. The unwashed locks from the fleece
  2. Clean and combed locks
  3. Singles on the bobbin
  4. The finished cowl (pattern is Abstract Leaves Cowl)
  5. Plied yarn
  6. Finished and washed yarn
On to other knitting and spinning and washing and dyeing...
