Back to spinning

DSC04302
I've started the Three Bags Full fiber in Forget-Me-Not. It's a Merino with silk and tencel in it if I remember correctly. I have 12 ounces of this and while I had originally planned on spinning it about DK weight, I changed my mind after seeing the fingering weight BFL and decided to spin this fingering weight. I'm thinking it might make a great Featherweight Cardigan, but it will take longer to spin than it would have if I'd followed my original plan. This is the first bobbin and I should have six bobbins of singles. I didn't get anything spun over the weekend, so I'm a little behind on the Tour de Fleece spinning, but I know that I've done more spinning over the last few weeks than I usually do. If this will get me back into a spinning habit, I will be happy.

Lovely! Can't tell completely but it looks a little tweedy!
