The August issue should be in the mail one week from tomorrow. If you don't receive one, maybe you haven't subscribed yet. And if you haven't . . . why not?
On the Home Front
A good thing about traveling is that all the things you've recently ordered will be there when you get home. In my case, I really hit the jackpot with one batt (merino wool, firestar, angelina in the "Persian" colorway), one braid (100% merino wool in the "Olive II" colorway), one thicker-than-pencil roving (50% merino, 50% tencel in the "Bethie" colorway), and the third Loopy Ewe Sock Club package.
Batt, braid, and roving.
The Loopy Ewe Sock Club
Sock Club Yarn - out of the bag.
Before we left for Mammoth I finished spinning and n-plying some Corriedale. The roving was 4 ounces, and it made 277 yards of 3-ply (Navajo ply). It varies from 10 to 14 wpi.
Now I need to decide what to spin next and get some done. The bright colors in the merino/tencel are calling my name, but I also want to get some natural Corriedale or Polwarth done so I can try dyeing. I've missed several days of the Tour de Fleece and need to get back to it. I'm also making a pair of socks for Don, but only have the toes done, so I'll post photos of them when they get bigger.
