Tour de Fleece - the finish

So, here it is. 1lb 1.8 oz of yarn that I've spun during the last 3 weeks. It includes from left
to right:
3.2 oz myster green wool
2.1 oz Columbia top - spindle spun
4 oz Cormo wool
7.5 oz Alpaca
1oz wool at the top.
Phew! Now, this story would be soooo much better if I hadn't bought 14 oz of yarn at the Uniquities fiber market on Saturday.

Tour de Fleece

At the completion of week 2 of Tour de Fleece, I've finished 7oz of yarn, .5 of which was left on a bobbin. I also met one of my goals and finally finished the fiber on my spindle, in the middle. Now all that's left is to ply that.
Up for week 3, 100% alpaca from Skyvue Ranch, which was a gift from a co-worker. His mom owns the farm. I've had it in the stash for awhile and now wonder why I waited so long to spin it because it is all that is fabulous in this world.
I also plan on working on the green mystery wool - one skein plied above and work on the dream batt that I'm spinning on my new golding spindle.
