51  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / 25 wpi, dbl ply - blue/white on: January 02, 2008 09:24:50 AM

This is 481 yards, about 25 wpi. I carded about 50/50 corriedale with the blue from Carol Lee's #1 wool roving.  The pictures don't show the true color, which is more a purple than a blue.  These will be knitted into socks for me:

55  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / intro MullersLaneFarm on: November 13, 2007 01:26:22 PM
Found out about this little corner of the www a couple weeks ago,.

It's been fun to see all the beautiful things folks are doing!!

I love older crafts, what were once mainstays of the American household:

Spinning
Knitting
Crocheting
Tatting
Weaving
Felting

I've made cold process milk soap since 1999 as well as other beauty products such as lotions, creams and mineral makeup.

what else?  my husband and I raise the majority of our food (100% meats and 80% vegetables and fruits)

I've been hanging out on the fiber forums.
