I've been so head-down in my spinning this month that I didn't realize there was no thread here for this month's wool in the Knitter's Book of Wool wool-a-long (KBOW WAL).

Miss Clara chose Polwarth, which I happily spun during the Tour de Fleece on Ravelry. There are still a few days left in July, perhaps I can turn my 126 yards of worsted/bulky into some knitting!

I wrote up my Polwarth TdF adventure hereon my blog.

Luann, already wondering what August's wool will be!

Knit and let knit!

I have Polwarth luxury blend fiber from Spirit Trail and Polwarth fiber from Sweet Georgia (that was my July club shipment) but haven't spun them yet.
The luxury blend is beautiful, I might have to wait until my spinning improves to do it justice -- it would make a great cowl, like the Yarn Harlot's Pretty Thing.

I ordered Polwarth, aran weight, from Rovings. It took awhile to get from Canada to Indiana so I haven't even started my project yet. Tbe yarn is a natural dark brown that will be perfect for my thrummed mittens. The little crunch in the Polwarth will come in handy for grabbing onto the thrums.

I'm wondering aobut August too!
