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 […]

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 […]

And so it goes…..

Sometimes it is not enough to tweak my week but to tweak the day or even the hour. A flat tire changed our plans for the day. The spare is on so now to drop the flat one off somewhere for repairs. When you live an hour away from just about everything the plans definitely […]

Spinning Saturday

While I stay indoors in the cool basement apartment I’m inspired to spin but not something too heavy or intense.  I keep coming back to this vibrant blues that are in this jar.  The colours are not great here but take my word for it, they are beautiful and rich. I’ve decided to spin a […]

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 […]
