Thank you!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / A couple big Skeins of handspun <3 on: May 23, 2015 07:41:50 AM
Two big skeins, that I haven't measured yet, but I started with about 8 ounces of fibre.  I dyed the merino top, and it felted up a bit, so I ran it through my drum carder

Here are the yarns:




This is what it looked like in batt form (there were lots of them, but these are two good examples:



And a little update on the yarns I posted last week.  This is how they look now that I'm knitting them:

I'll give it it's own thread later, once it's finished.

Thanks for looking!

(gah! I don't know why they are sideways!!  They aren't on my computer...)

Those little skeins are all homework >.< I'm working on cataloging and measuring and all that right now, so I can hand my book in and get it back at fibre week in June.  I'm wishing I could find more time to spin the fun yarns, that won't get marked LOL

Ha!  Thanks! it's taken a lot of practice to get to this point where it looks machine spun (from a far... there are quite a few "imperfections" if you look at it yard by yard.)

We are most certain due for a fibre friday!! Gorgeous work, Calluna!

Here's my biggest project finished up! This is the yarn for my final project for level 4 of the Master spinners program. I've washed, flicked, blended, carded and spun up the most gorgeous Est D'laine Merino. The brown/fawn coloured is the natural color, and the darkest in the portion of the fleece I bought.  I blended it with silk noils.  The purple is percentage dyed to achieve the color gradation. And the purple is achieved using 25% red, and 75% blue Jacquard acid dyes. So far, this project has taken nearly 50 hours, so I'm so hoping I can fill the last 25 hours with knitting and blocking.... >.<






Otherwise, this pile of tiny skeins have been taking up a fair share of my time too... And that's not all of them!



And that's truly not all, I have a few more skien done, but I haven't taken any pictures or anything, and I'm running out of time to post today!
