Cormo Subscription #2

Hey, ya'll - I haven't even touched the first Subscription that went out to us (Rambouilet) and my wheel was in a great place to start this last night. So, I am no where near done, but I thought you might enjoy a picture or two of what I have so far:

I really don't know how to figure out how to spin my singles to get to 15wpi, plied, I do know how to spin at 15wpi per single, tho. I am not sure what the wpi is with this, but without changing all my settings this is what I am getting!

I am not entirely sure I am a fine wool spinner! I really do, oh so much better, with medium and long wools! So, this is entirely out of my box right now, but the fluff is just so lovely isn't it?

Fiber Kit #2

Just a quick note to let y'all know that I've started shipping the fiber club installment #2 packages out today (about a third went out to the UK and east coast), with the other two-thirds shipping tomorrow and Friday.

This time we are highlighting cormo wool, and Mim did up a fantastic fun little pattern to accompany the kit this time around. There is enough roving to knit her pattern, and I also threw in a little extra (an ounce of a cormo blend), so you can either spin the cormo by itself to her pattern specs, or maybe try a 3-ply with the plain cormo and the cormo blend, or just try the blend by itself.

Please give me a holler if you have any questions when the packages arrive (which should be sometime early next week for the folks in the U.S., maybe a few extra days to the UK).

:) Anne

Happy July!

Hi again everyone:

Just a quick update to remind those of you who are pay-as-you-go'ers to check your in-boxes (and/or spam box) for the invoice I sent out this weekend for installment kit #2.

The next spinning fiber is going to be Cormo and I've got the fiber bagged up and ready to ship out on the 15th as soon as I finish up the information/tips/pattern sheet.

If you think you should have gotten an invoice and didn't, please email me and I can resend it.
