I started spinning my Shetland fleece for Rhinebeck 2014. The category is Featured Breed. I am using my .46 oz Russian Bog top whorl drop spindle by Golding. It will be 1 ply cobweb. I have 6 batts in black : 2 of 25 gms and 4 of 24 gms. I still have to figure out what to knit with it. My Lilac leaf shawl is coming along nicely. It is a Blueberry tonal color in 50% merino wool / 50% silk laceweight yarn. GORGEOUS! The aim is to knit 10 rows a day. So far, so good!
