September Tiger Club Reveal

For September’s Tiger Clubs, I decided to go with some typical fall colors…..even those who don’t care for yellow or orange enjoy rich fall leaf colors. So I present to you…..Marvelous Maples!

Sock Yarn – Tiger Twist

And the fiber…..a new one for me, Polwarth. I set up the Polwarth for stashing on Ravelry yesterday, if you are so inclined.  There are also a few other colors available in the shop now.

I spun up my portion last Saturday, here’s how it turned out:
Marvelous Maples - Hand Spun Polwarth
I really enjoyed spinning the Polwarth.  I stripped the top in half, then each half into pencil roving size strips and spun them softly and plied together with a slight bit extra ply twist.  A quick hot/cold/hot/cold rinse settled the twist in to be nicely balanced.  132 yards….not bad for an evening!   My current plans for this is to use it as warp to make a scarf.  Still deciding how I’m going to make that happen (my rigid heddle looms don’t have a dent that big, so I’m going to have to do pickup sticks and/or string heddles).  I’m also deciding on the weft.  Perhaps brown, or maybe alternating between the gold, orange, and burgundy in the yarn.  Any thoughts on that?
