A spinning story of sorts

This story starts with a blended batt made of wool, bamboo, tencel and angelina all carded on a new Ashford 2 speed carder.

Next the batt was spun on a louet S17 spinning wheel and ended up about a worsted weight yarn.

The total yardage from the batt was about 63 yards of yarn. Now what to do with it.

I then found this little pattern on ravelry for a Ribbed Neck Tube by Kate Korotky. The pattern was just perfect for this little skein of yarn. It probably could have be a little longer but this was a trial run for my batts to yarn to knit item. I needed to see for myself how the yarn knit up.

I would never have guessed the end result from the batt :)
