5  Fender sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by eat_agar on: October 12, 2008 10:37:15 AM
This is my first adult sized sweater. I spun the yarn from lambswool I bought from the Homestead Wool and Gift Farm; the lamb's name is Fender. My husband builds guitars as a hobby so that seemed like a sign or something. It's a little tight, but he loves it.

6  thrift score in Weaving: Discussion and Questions by eat_agar on: October 12, 2008 10:27:40 AM
I found this at Goodwill for $3 yesterday. It's just a toy, but I'm super excited to make a scarf on it, as soon as I figure out how to set it up. I also made the lap loom out of Craft this week.

Three this week:

skinny menagerie: Blue angora, grey and white mohair, green cormo and natural silver cotswold, even some natural brown yak with some green and yellow soy silk, yellow glitz and copper bamboo.

maat: Turquiose silk rods set against golden tussah silk, organic color grown cotton and dyed corridale wool top spun into a soft, chunky, thick and thin singles.

popgun: A blend of pink, blue and green tunis wool, natural Romney, dyed orange and natural alpaca, black mill ends, grey mohair, golden tussah silk with Yarnia threads and copper glitz.

I love all the orangey colors popping up this week, especially "no name". "Money" is also super cute, too.

Tail-spun mohair always reminds me of unicorns, the core spun makes me think of candy. Yum!

I got a few done this week, too.
lemon tree-silk noil, cotswold, alpaca, mohair, and mill ends.

freebie yarn-dyed cotswold with bits of alpaca or mohair throughout.

Yeah! I can finally post for Fiber Friday because I got my wheel today. I started with some practice singles from some mill end roving and moved on to core spinning alpaca seconds I dyed recently, mixed with sari silk shreds and fabric. Then I plied them, which I tend to avoid with my drop spindle, to make this:
"cactus flowers"
