21  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / I made boucle! on: July 08, 2006 10:10:59 PM


I just got done plying it so it's still on the bobbin, but I was so excited I couldn't wait!!! It's made with this awesome red colonial top that I bought from a local fiber artist. I have 5 oz from her and I bought another 8 oz of the same top at the MDSW. I decided I had to make SOMETHING out of this stuff, since I loved the colors so much, and as I was spinning it, it cried out to be fluffy boucle. I plied it with cotton quilting thread. There is another bobbin of yarn waiting to be plied and about 10 oz of fiber left to be spun.

I love it when I feel like I've finally "gotten" it!

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / looking for IK Spring 2004 on: July 08, 2006 12:14:03 PM
I got hold of some Trendsetter oceano and I'm dying to turn it into a lovely drapey cardigan. I found an awesome pattern in this issue of IK but it's out of print. Does anyone have an issue they'd be willing to swap for/sell?

I so want in in this, but I'm pretty much a newbie at spinning, and I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone who is a super expert or anything. Will you be matching up skill levels?

I made my first pair of "real" socks in opal rainforest chameleon (it matched my blue and lime green chucks perfectly!)  with the shorty brittany needles. They are an absolute dream to wear, I'd take a pic of them for you, but They need to be washed, yet again. They are very breathable and I wear them in the hot muggy va summer with comfort.  Opal seems scratchy on the ball, but once you put your feet in them you don't want to take them out.  As for the shorter needles, yes you do have to be more careful about not losing stitches, but once you get a groove with them it happens less and less. It's nice to not have extra needles ends flopping in the way.

Good luck with your socks!

I don't think it's weird at all! If I look at all the money I spend on fleece and roving, then think about all of the fluff that my dog puts out, it just seems wasteful not to use it. I have a retreiver mix that puts off this loveley soft light golden undercoat, and a shelty mix who has a silky chestnut brown and white undercoat. I can't imagine what I'd pay to find something like that in your "typical" fleece.
