CPW

…the spinning so far. As per usual, I’m spinning my Spunky Club fiber for TdF to attempt to whittle away at the 8ish POUNDS that are now stuffed into the Bin of Shame Awesome.

I think I’ve managed to spin twice as much this year as I spun last year. Which isn’t much since last year I managed to spin 4oz. ;o)

First up, ‘David’s Gift’ on SW Corriedale:

Tour de Fleece 2013 David's Gift

Spun on the CPW and plied on the Matchless from a center-pull ball. I ended up with 284 yards of fingering-ish weight. I seriously love this colorway!

Second we have ‘Eye of the Peacock’ on Cotswold Sheepswool Sliver:

Tour de Fleece 2013 Peacock

Also spun on the CPW and plied on the Matchless frmo a center-pull ball. This ended up being 177 yards of thick/thin 2-ply that varies in weight. This is SO pretty, it’s possibly going to be a hat someday but currently it’s just going to be pretty.

That’s it so far! I’m not sure what else I’ll be able to get done before the end of the Tour because now I’m prepping for vending at Fiber Revival on August 10!

See you soon! Spin Happy!



This past Saturday, I attended a spinning event in Athens, NY that was hosted by my friend, Tina.  It was mainly for owners of Canadian Production Wheels but everyone was welcome.

(Tina and Jesh pictured above) We even had a less-than-48-hour owner of a new (to her) CPW!  Jess (on the right in the photo below – Yrallee is on the left) found her new toy just a day or so before our meetup!

I think we ignited some CPW lust in the hearts of the few who attended CPW-less ;o)

It was wonderful to see them grouped together
