Ravelympics – A Slow Start

The last week has rushed by in the blur of mayhem and chaos that is shop update and club packing week. I did manage to find time to get a 86 gram (3 ounce) sample spun, washed and dried.

SCF Polwarth - Green Tea

Fibre: Polwarth Top in “Green Tea” from Southern Cross Fibre
Spinning method: Woollen spun 3-ply from rolags (see post here for details)
Yardage: 174 yards / 160 metres
Weight: 3 ounces / 86 grams
Yards per Pound: 927 ypp (Heavy Worsted/Aran weight)

This yarn should be a good substitute for Cascade Eco Wool, so it is time to cast on and get busy spinning the rest of the fibre.

There is a lot of 1×1 ribbing in the Fog Sweater, so I’m almost tempted to suck it up swatch in continental to see how bad my gauge is.  Almost.
