Fiber Friday Fun

I started the day with a bad headache. Mostly gone now – settled in the background.  I find spinning very soothing.  Finally finished the pink/red merino super wash I’ve been spinning. Not sure about the length as its still on the bobbin but ever so soft.  What do you think? Selling at .15/yard. Email dollcan@gmail.com […]

Tour de fleece

I have some spinning completed and some still going. This is the first time I’ve followed through with the Tour de fleece and although I’ve not spun as much as I had planned, any progress right now is progress.  Right? The yarn knits up well anywhere from a 3.5 mm to 6.00 mm needles.  I’m […]

Spinning Saturday

Fibre Friday: Undecided

I have this beautiful merino roving purchased from Yarn Forward which was dyed by Turtle Purl.  I have almost 4 oz of this yummy fibre but cannot decide what to do with it.  Here’s a sample done in entrelac – one of my favourite designs.  I have another scarf done similarly but not as soft as […]
