So, I’ve been spinning quite a bit lately, and I thought I would share with you some of what I have in my stash.
From bottom of picture to top: Spinning Sister’s Superfine Hand Dyed Merino Wool 2-plied, Targhee Wool Single Ply, Miss Bab’s Sock Yarn 2-plied, Unknown Artist Wool 2-plied, The Soap Lady’s Autumn Merino/Alpaca 2-plied, Spinner’s Choice Corriedale Wool 2-plied, Abstract Fibers Corriedale 2-plied, Alpaca Wool Blend Single Ply, Unknown Artist Coopworth 2-plied, and finally Natural Merino all 2-plied.
This is a closeup of the Natural Handspun Merino Wool. The three on the left were from the same bunch, the one in the middle is Superwash that I picked up from the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival (OFFF) the year before last, and the three on the right came from Woodland Woolworks in Carlton, OR.
Isn’t my baby precious!? My Ashford Joy Double Treadle with Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) from Frabjous Fibers also picked up from Woodland Woolworks.
My singles on the bobbin. I navajo plied this (3-ply) so that the colorways would stay together and my finished knitted project would be verriegated. I’m making a scarf with a waffle texture and it’s turning out LOVELY! Can’t wait to get some pics up!
That’s it for now, tune in again for more great fibers!
Okay, so once again, I have to apologize for being so tardy in my posts. There has been A LOT going on in my life right now and it’s just sometimes really hard to get a breather to sit down and ramble about nothing.
First off, I started school. It’s completely online and I will graduate with a BS with a Small Business Management concentration in the Winter of 2010. That’s exciting! ^_^
Next, I was spinning like a madwoman before Christmas with my Spinning Sisters to get some gifts finished, and also to promote our side business, Spinning Sisters. It’s an Etsy shop where we sell hand dyed spinning fibers and homespun yarns. *I’m not plugging anything. . . ^_^* So, don’t be afraid to give a little click to the link, which is just about every other word in this paragraph. 😀
Oh, and don’t forget about my own personal site. It’s still a work in progress, but hopefully I will have some reusable shopping totes, hand sewn by me of course, and some more fibery goodness soon.
Now then, on to more wonderful stuff. I have been personally invited by Jess of Phat Fiber to join her in her quest of sample collection for the oh so wonderful Phat Fiber Sampler Box! What is this you may ask? Well, for a better detailed description, you may click here, which will take you to her blog. But if you click here, you will go to the shop where these boxes will be on sale! HURRY! There are a very limited amount each month! And you wouldn’t want to miss out on getting a box with MY stuff in it, would you?!?! ^_^ No plugs here. . .nope.
So, without further ado, here are some of my samples that will be in February’s box! ^_^ Enjoy!
Here’s my latest spin, it is BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) spun very small and then navajo plied for a 3 ply yarn. I’m knitting this into a scarf for myself with a basket weave type pattern. Pics of that to come soon.
My Singles for my scarf yarn.
And so my fellow blogites, I must retire to bed. But until next time, good dyeings, good yarnings, and good night.
