I spun 100 gms of merino silk blend and dyed it various colors. Used Nici's Ashford Cowl pattern to knit up - added extra repeat of the patterns and crochet around the end as this is a thinner yarn than the pattern called for. No for wearing in the summer obviously but the colors might remind me of the summer - if we had one that is. Rain, rain go away!

Found myself taking part in Tour de Fleece on Ravelry, with the Irish group. Groups of spinners spin every day the Tour de France is on. I've taken on the task of spinning up a little greasy fleece I sheared from and Easy Care -cross ewe this May. It doesn't seem so little now!
