I love the colours in that yarn. Smiley

It was my birthday last week, and my parents decided to be totally awesome and bought me a secondhand wheel.

Her name is Fred (short for Winifred Burkle), and this is the second yarn I spun on her.  It's a merino/alpaca/silk blend and she goes by the name of Carmelo.

Here's my Mariah -- it's unblocked and without a zip in this picture, but it's blocked now and I'll sew the zipper in tomorrow. Smiley

I'm still rather unsure of how I managed to finish this.

I spun this up yesterday -- I'm very excited to be getting better at this. Smiley

It's a merino/silk/alpaca blend spun with some random kid mohair locks, and plied with a thin strand of teal yarn and some large pink and aqua paillettes.  Her name is Flashdance and she's around 39 metres.  There's another pic on my blog.

I spun some yarn over the weekend too.

First, this is a test swatch for yarn I spun from some wool I got for Christmas.  My brother's girlfriend's family raise sheep on their farm, and when I asked for some fleece, I didn't actually expect that I would get an entire, huge, enormous fleece.  It's from a coloured sheep that I'm guessing is some sort of mixed breed near the merino end of the scale.  I just bought myself some hand carders, so had a go at blending it with some other fibers -- a little bit of silk with the black fleece, a lot of silk with the white/grey fleece and some kid mohair with the black fleece.

I also carded a bunch of leftover merino and suri alpaca fibre scraps and made this yarn.  I love it.  It's plied with a strand of thin black boucle yarn.  I'd like to have a go at selling it, but is it worth selling something that's only 16.5 metres?

15  Why is there so much buzz? in Needlework: Completed Projects by crumpet on: December 20, 2005 05:23:23 AM
I made this t-shirt as a Christmas gift for a friend -- the green is stencilled on, the yellow was hand-appliqued, and the rest was embroidered.  It was inspired by The Happies, a favourite band of ours.  They used to have this little song called Why is there so much buzz? on mp3.com back in the day, and it's my friend's favourite.

16  Chocolate Ribbed Hat (with link to pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by crumpet on: September 15, 2005 02:33:58 PM
Mr Crumpet lost his hat a few weeks ago and needed a new one, so I made this up for him, and have finally posted the pattern on my site:

The "That chocolate will go straight to your ribs" hat pattern.

He loves it. Cheesy

I made up my pattern to suit two strands of Australian 8-ply yarns held together (the red is the Lincraft 'Cosy Wool' brand and the yellow and orange are Cleckheaton 8-ply yarns, I think).  I made a beta hat first, and decided I wanted it longer and a little tighter, with narrower ear flaps.  It's a pity the weather is heating up here now, because this hat is so warm!

I can finally post this (it was for a swap, which has been received) -- it's the third yarn I've ever spun.  I used pre-dyed merino rovings, plied with a very thin wool boucl strand.   The colours are based on the Australian Top End.

And this next one was my second yarn/first plied yarn, also merino.

I bought some undyed rovings as well, and am looking forward to dying and spinning them. Smiley

19  My first yarn! in Spinning: Completed Projects by crumpet on: July 31, 2005 03:26:35 PM
So, I made a drop spindle from some dowel and old CDs (Norton System Works had to be good for something, after all...) and made this yarn from some pre-dyed and prepared merino that I bought. Smiley  I love it -- there's another picture on my blog of it partially knitted up --
