Hello all! I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! It appears everyone has been busy this week...just not busy spinning lol

I spun and dyed this one last night once the guests were gone and the house was quiet. Grape Kool-Aid dyed, 160 yd single...this will become a pair of fingerless gloves/armwarmers for a friend. It's a more purple compared to the pics...the pics look a bit gray.

Lilacs and Amethyst

Very pretty.  I am a sheep rancher and I have always wanted to learn how to do this with our wool.  Good job!

Here is a dog sweater from sheep's wool. I got three fleeces a while back and I've been slowly working through them. Cleaning fleeces is dirty work. So I cleaned some, carded it with some yellow and black roving, then spun it. It looked like dirty sheep's wool so I then died it with Strawberry Kool-aid. I didn't like the color at first but when I knitted it up into a dog sweater for Chloe, I like the pink color against her black fur and the black and yellow roving gives it some interest.

I just gotta say, that is the cutest puppy dog face ever. I thought my dog had the cutest, but wow. Smiley That must've been an awesome Christmas present.
