Adventures in Fleece

I finally finished the spinning project that was holding up my fleece processing adventures. I purchased 8 oz (227g) of a lovely 70% Merino 30% Silk Top in "Mackenzie Tartan" from WC Mercantile's etsy store a few months ago, in order to make a scarf as a gift for someone special.

The yarn is wonderful. I ended up doing a 2ply from a center pull ball and got 5 skeins (should have been 4, but one broke) totaling around 400m of sport weight yarn/dk weight yarn. The yarn is more blue than the pictures and has little flecks of red, green, white and gray. I think I'll use it to make My So Called Scarf (Ravelry Link)

Once the yarn finished with a good wash and thwack, I immediately grabbed the Polwarth that I washed last week and started to card it. So far, so good..... I think...

I haven't only been spinning.... I also cast on for Vivian I plan to knit it without a hood or zipper and am using the suggested yarn in "Biscuit".
