Tour de Fleece Day 4.

I've been doing a little spinning each day, and this is what I finished on Day 2 of the Tour de Fleece...

120g of 2-plied merino/bamboo/nylon. The fibre is from EGMTK, and it's called "Hermione", so I made it my DADA assignment (Craft something inspired by a member of Dumbledore's Army). It's 251m, making it about worsted weight, maybe a fraction thinner. (It's 10 yards per 100g longer than Cascade 220).

This one might beat it, though.
This is the yarn so far at the end of Day 4. I'm aiming for sport weight, which will have to be about 300m per 100g after it's 2-plied. I've only snapped it twice so far, which is not bad for me, but this little bit is about 20g or so. It'll take me forever, but I'm looking forward to seeing how long I can get it.

Some of the daily posts on the TdF group are amazing. They're so good; some are as thin as cobwebs. Sigh.

Went to Knit Night tonight, and worked on my Jasmine 3. It's been a bit neglected, especially considering Jasmine's birthday is on Friday, but I've been at work the last 2 days. I have one button band and a neck to do. Also working on the Wurm, which has 22 yards left (to be the required 300y for Quidditch :D). Hope to finish both tomorrow, if I can get a little bit of car-knitting in... Ü

Nice work on the spinning. The pink/orange is looking great so far.
Looking forward to seeing Jasmine in her jumper. Wish I could come party with her too.

That blue yarn is absolutely gorgeous - well done.
