Crown Mountain Corriedale

Spinner: Rebecca
Fiber: Crown Mountain Corriedale Pencil Roving, 16oz in the colorway called Spring Blooms. Purchased at Madrona Fiber Arts in January, 2007.
Project info: Spinning began on February 4th and plying ended on February 9th, 2007. 4 hanks for 1140 yards, 2-ply at 13 wpi and a total weight of 14.7 oz. I enjoyed this roving and would buy it again in another color. There's something about Corriedale that works great for shawls ~ this yardage should make a nice big one. Or maybe a vest. Yeah, a vest.

So glad the Blog Glitch got fixed! Whew! Love your new yarn, BTW. Maybe we can do a vest for our next joint project?

I bet it's so bouncy and soft. It's a beautiful color. I can't wait to see what you knit with it!

Gorgeous yarn - love the color! Teyani really does a great job with her colorways.

I can't believe how fast you got that spun and plied.

As always you guys are amazing. I commented to someone at Ferals that you guys get so much done and they said that is because there are two of you. Still, you each get so much done which provides continual inspiration.

I want to touch it. Can you bring it Thursday? Thanks!!!!

Holy crap, you spin beautifully. Now I've got to blow the dust off the wheel and practice more. Gorgeous stuff.

Hey youse two - my friend Lynne in Canada (who you met briefly at Conference last year - she makes the wonderful Bearlys) loves your blog and wants to connect up with you at Whidbey. She loves how you tell all the details about your spinning projects. Here's HER blog:

I lerve de CMountain p roving too. I was gonna locker hook it but the color is so pretty I think I gotta spin it. I wonder what a blend of silk and Corriedale would be like - think Corriedale wouldn't be considered "fine" enough usually to blend with silk? we needs us a hackle (and cackle) party!
