1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Wherein B1K makes a baby quilt, and discovers that binding sucks on: September 04, 2015 06:42:21 AM
I think the problem was the satin. Binding can be a PITA but so is satin. Mix them together and ugh. I don't mind binding so much, other than it's tedious but not really portable, but I cringe just thinking about doing it in satin.
This quilt looks like fun, either way though. As long as it's functional. I love the quilting. I still don't do that on my machine, even just for wonky stripes like this. (the wonkiness adds loveliness, btw!)

Thanks again for the kind words, everyone!

I am glad it's done, but it was so much fun. I would totally do it again sometime. I have enough alpaca left, I may do it again with a different scheme. Love it!
I would love to see how they knit up, too. Too bad I don't knit!
The right kind of anything is great, even sh*t has a nice side. We have found sh*t's "silver lining," and it is rainbow colored.
Thanks for the kind words, y'all.

I've been working on this for over a year.
I started with some local, white alpaca, dyed it with Easter colors,

carded it into fluffy, sparkly batts,

And spun it into thick n' thin yarn!

I made a total of 22 batts, from 1.8 oz to 2.8 oz each.
These 3 are 9oz @ 290 yds, 8.3oz @ 290 yds, and 9oz @ 270 yds.
I have another drying that is 10oz @ 245 yds
and another still on the bobbin, yet to be measured.
I also have 1 batt left that I don't think I will spin on it's own. I guess I will hang onto it.

She is fabulous and she knows it, but she doesn't seem proud, just fabulous. She has a lot of character. You did a really good job.

 I have some hoops on my goals list for the quarter and we just had a roadtrip to the Jemaz Mountains and Albuquerque but I couldn't find my hoops before we left!  Cry Cry Cry

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! So much to love about this post! Your School work is always exciting to me. Was the first yarn (and process) for fun spinning? So much greatness!

I have stuff to share but I doubt I will. SO much else going on. Oh, I even think I forgot to snap a shot of my blue batts before I spun them up, darn.

That Teapot is sweet.
Dinkime, congrats! It's nice to win, right?
I need to think on this theme. I have lots to do this next week to get ready for market but I think I need to make more hoopla now that I have my hoopla wall mostly stable. Maybe I should just stitch up the 2 I planned a couple months ago for the... color? round.

If you have any questions or need any support, I'm still here and available for chatting. Who knows, maybe I'd join a round as long as I'm not running it. Homeschooling and the being the clerk for the farmer's market certain take their tolls.
