1  Re: Fibre Friday - 30th January 2009 in Spinning: Completed Projects by adriennec on: February 01, 2009 06:16:54 PM
There are so many gorgeous yarns this week!  I just watched the Sit and Spin video by Jacey of Insubordiknit, and I feel so inspired!  I haven't done any art yarns before, but I can't wait!

I'm totally late with this, but I actually finished some yarn this week!  It's merino/tencel from Juliespins (on etsy), and 4oz ended up being close to 100yds.  It's a gift for a swap I'm doing (not on craftster), and I just hope the recipient likes it!

Everyone's yarn looks great!  So many awesome colours, and I'm jealous.

I haven't spun much lately, because my wheel needed fixing.  But I've finished some stuff recently, and I love it!
Here's "oh, sari!", spun from a Hollyeqq batt, about 160yds, 5oz.

And here's "the killing joke", spun from nerdclub2000's Slytherin roving, about 230yds from 4oz.


(my pictures are less than awesome.  I think I need a new camera Smiley )

So much awesomeness this week!  I'm loving everything, but the colours in Inchworm are just awesome.  My wheel was out of commission for a month (!!) while I took my time replacing a part..  But as soon as I got it replaced, I spun up a bobbin of singles from my last HollyEqq batt club batt.

I've only spun about half, so I should have a good amount of yarn when I'm all done, yay!

Oooh, pretty!  I didn't get much spinning done either, but I did some, and that's the important part.  Here's Xavier (Xavier colourway from Twisted Fiber Arts, merino/kid mohair blend):

I love it!  I spin more natural fibres and batts, so handpainted is always fun and exciting.

I haven't done much spinning, but I did spin one skein.  I haven't decided whether to spin the other 2 oz and ply it, or to do it all as singles.  So this is about 2oz, and 110 yards.  If I plied it, I would do the fractal plying thing, where one ply has long colour stretches, and the other has short stretches.  Oh yes, this is merino/kid mohair from Twisted Fiber Arts, in the Xavier colourway.

Lufah, your yarns are gorgeous.  I especially love the bamboo!  I also dropped out of Tour de Fleece...  After about 2 days! 
But here are the yarns I've spun recently.  The first is a batt from hollyeqq, plied with sparkly thread.  I found the batt a bit hard to spin because it was just so textured, but it's a really soft yarn, so I'm happy.

The second is made of two Loop! babycakes batts, spun in stripes.  I loooove it, it's so soft and sparkly.  I think I'll weave it into a scarf whenever I figure out what to use as warp.

(the picture is pre-washing, so it was a bit twisty still)

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's yarn!

There's so many pretty yarns this week!  I have 2 finished, and 2 in progress.
The first is from a HollyEqq batt that was merino, eco-fibre (recycled pop bottle stuff...) and lots of sparkle.  Prettier colours than it shows, but my camera's not very good.

An attempt at low(er) twist singles, using Corriedale:

And my spins in progress.  On the left is some Black Bunny Fibers merino, and on the right are some Loop baby cakes.

I might ply the baby cakes yarn with some sparkly thread, and the merino will be a worsted-ish 2-ply.

Everyone's yarn looks great!  I really like the bamboo, and I sooo need to try spinning some.

I have a bunch of stuff I've finished recently, but just got around to taking pictures:
I think this was shetland roving.  2oz made about 70 yards

Fleece artist merino alpaca, navajo plied

HollyEqq batt, 4.8oz made about 60 yards

And my very favourite, some Pigeon Roof Studios superwash merino.  2oz made about 150 yards, and I have another 2oz to spin


(and there are more and bigger pictures here)

9  My first sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by adriennec on: March 17, 2008 02:41:37 PM
I'm so excited!  I finally finished my first sweater, using fingering weight yarn!  It's Joelle's Favorite Yoke sweater from the book KnitKnit.  I knit it using Zen Yarn Garden's Bling yarn.  Roxanne from Zen Yarn Garden was great to work with, and dyed the yarn just the colour I wanted!  (much closer to the second picture - the first is a bit light and unsparkly)




Thanks for looking Smiley

10  Harry Potter Hermione Mittens, finally! in Knitting: Completed Projects by adriennec on: December 27, 2007 04:17:10 PM
I have loved the cable and bobble mittens that are in Charmed Knits, for like ever!
So I finally knit a pair for a mitten swap!  It took me forever to finish the first, but only 3 days to finish the second....  Here they are!

I used Louisa Harding's Kashmir Aran, and I really liked it!  It was a bit snaggy with Addi Lace needles, but nothing too terrible.  I think there's a bit more info on my blog, but if not more info, definitely bigger pictures!
