Jexx, yes.  The first yarn is for fun. I'm taking a break from doing homework over the summer, then it's all homework all the time once the kids are in school. I plan to finish this level before christmas. And yeah, cotton is a pain to learn, but once I got it, it was like pie.  The only thing that irked me was the fact that my fastest ratio on my wheel wasn't fast enough. I've since got an Ashford Traditional wheel, which spins soon much faster, even on it's biggest whorl/slowest ratio.. (which is obviously faster then the fastest on my Traveller)

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Are there not as many swaps lately? on: July 24, 2015 07:42:41 AM
avoiding that self-indulgent feeling that comes from making things for yourself. That last one's a little weird; it does seem to come up in conversations with crafters a lot.

Yep.  That's one of the reasons for the Fake Swapalong, for people who have trouble making things for themselves - it gives parameters and a deadline.  I'm one of those people - I will bust a gut to make something for a swap partner, but have trouble allowing myself to make something for myself.  Roll Eyes

That's true for me too. The only time I've been making me something is when I'm forced to (i.e. when I have my master spinners final project to do, and I have to finish it) But, for complete strangers? I'm on it! lol

So, what have you all been up to? Whatcha spinnin'??

Here's what I've been doing!
The finished yarn:

And I'll share the process too! First step, dye the locks!

Second step, card em all up! Even if you're out camping Wink

Third step get ready to spin! And it's always great to have a helper kitty, right?

Fourth step: Spin anywhere!

And finally tally up how much there is! 4oz, 275yards, Woollen spun from hand carded rolags, 100% Shetland cross wool.

But wait! since it's been a while, there's more!

Master Spinner, Level 4, DONE. Seriously, that was a really fun level. Loads of work though!

And Master Spinner Level 5 dye day skeins. Hand spun Cotton (I spun 2 oz more then required... So it's going into my final project..) dyed with fibre reactive dyes.  First set: Percentage dyeing. Second set: Colour wheel.  All we start out with is Red, Yellow and Blue dye!

Okay, I'll leave this post at that... But I'm going to make another for all the batts i've carded up! 

Please share what you've been up to, spin wise, too!!

that's still only one extra swap!


I'm just as glad there aren't more - as a Swapaholic, I feel compelled to join as many as possible, and when I need to do other things besides craft for swaps, I find myself cramming too much into my daily schedule.... Tongue

LOL I'm not a swapoholic, but I do get the urge to swap occasionally. And when I do, I miss the huge list of options! But it sounds like there may be a couple swaps coming up that interest me, so I'll be patient and hope they run!

If I had to, I could whittle my life songs into a list of 8-10.. LOL Maybe even 6 if I picked the really big moments/life altering moments.  But none the less, crafting music would be awesome either way!

Well, as to me running one, maybe..... But I've been all over the place lately.  But I'm interested in being a Giver for sure.  I've got a ton of fat quarters that I'm not going to be using anytime soon, and they are in the closet that really needs clearing out.

Is this one a go for sure, and when? I'll have to look into where I can send magnets, but I just started making felt magnets!
