Oh my goodness! Your work is amazing!! I love those color combinations.

I know this may be a dumb question, but how did you braid the wool together like that? Because I ordered some and when it arrived it was all one long strand. I was thinking that maybe you just seperate it into three strands and then braid it together, but I was afraid of messing up the fibers. lol

I love the one in the first one, called Saskatoon, simply because you must know where Saskatoon is!  I love that city.  But they are all very gorgeous.  great work.

I am drooling over Happy Vamp, Edward, and Into the Woods.  Great job on the dye jobs, they are all gorgeous.

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

All of these are so pretty! I have to say I love Happy Vamp and Spanish Moss as well as Flightless Bird. So pretty... I'm still figuring out the whole dyeing thing. Hopefully soon I can start showing off my own stuff!

Wooooow!!

Here I was hoping you lived in Saskatoon.. I'm just learning the ins and outs of fiber and spinning, and wanted a buddy!

Do agree with it being too cold. Winters up here get down to around -40 degrees C, and that's on a daily basis, not just a one-time deal.

They're so beautiful!! I can't wait to be able to do something like that!!

I heard on another tutorial that you can hand-crochet the fibers to make a chain as well, any one have any luck with this?
