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!
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:
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?
