Tour de Fleece, Day 20

Before.

After.

This morning, I had a little more time than usual, so I spun for about an hour. Soon, I really should weigh out half of the wool so that I can make my second bobbin fairly even, but I haven't done it yet.

Weaving

I finished weaving my little bit of handspun romney and took it off the loom last night.

This morning, I threw it in a zippered pillowcase and washed it in the washing machine with an old towel, to full it. I even put it in the dryer. The result was a very tightly-fulled length of wool.

I don't know what to do with it. I could make it into a bag or a liner of some sort. For now, I don't have a strong urge to sew, so I will probably just press it and put it away for later. It was a fun experiment.
