51  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / 25 wpi, dbl ply - blue/white on: January 02, 2008 09:24:50 AM

This is 481 yards, about 25 wpi. I carded about 50/50 corriedale with the blue from Carol Lee's #1 wool roving.  The pictures don't show the true color, which is more a purple than a blue.  These will be knitted into socks for me:

Found out about this little corner of the www a couple weeks ago,.

It's been fun to see all the beautiful things folks are doing!!

I love older crafts, what were once mainstays of the American household:


I've made cold process milk soap since 1999 as well as other beauty products such as lotions, creams and mineral makeup.

what else?  my husband and I raise the majority of our food (100% meats and 80% vegetables and fruits)

I've been hanging out on the fiber forums.
