Spin Control by Amy King and Respect The Spindle by Abby Franquemont are new books to add to the list.

I'll second this!

Spin Control by Amy King is a wonderful book! I recommend it

Heck, I would! I don't mind, I would just need to know when ahead of time so I could properly plan, but it sounds good to me!

Hello Babies!!

Happy Fiber Friday!!

I haven't been spinning as much as I'd like to lately. I've got a number of excuses in my back pocket ready to go, my numero uno excuse is that I live in south Texas and it's waaaay too hot to function right now. Summer is going to be a tough one!

I've been trying to perfect my techniques with making consistent 'proper yarn' as I call it. They take ages, yo!

Here's my work so far:








New Day
207 yards of corriedale wool
Hand dyed by Amy King from my Spunky Fiber Club subscription. It's like christmas every month when I get this stuff in the mail!





Soul Windows
corriedale wool and nylon
I do not like this photo at all, I will have to redo it and check back with ya'll later. I do however love the yarn! This photo really doesn't do it justice. It's my first really 'proper' three-ply and it's so even (for me) it makes me giggle. I keep thinking "oh hey! I made that!"

I don't think I can knit these just yet, I love looking at them too much, so I hung them on my wall Smiley


Happy Fiber Friday ya'll!


With love from Texas,
xoxo Talia
