2  Knitted socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: July 23, 2017 07:48:39 AM
These started out as an emergency yarn purchase when I found I didn't have any fibery
things to occupy my hands in the van on a recent trip into the city.  I even had to buy knitting needles (like I needed more)
These are my 4th(5th?) pair of socks. I knit them top down and somehow messed up one of the heel turns, but I left it that way. They fit my daughter. They were supposed to fit me... Oh well, live and learn, and swatch!

This extra pic is for size comaprison...  that bag of undyed wool the braids are sitting on is one of those large garbage bag sized bags filled full with undyed corridale...

Day's 6&7, and the big finish!

That was a long slog!! 5721 yards is 5.23 km or 3.25 miles! Pretty good while still running the kids to activities, keeping the house in well enough order that it didn't turn into a dive, and going to work (one day..)

Day 4 and 5!

Plied up 4 singles of the Corriedale wool, and started a bobbin of hemp fibre.

Finished the first bobbin of hemp, and spun a second one, then started to ply them.

Day 3!
9 oz spun, 8oz plied.  My goal was 10oz spun, 12 plied, but that just didn't happen. but I came close! once this 4 ply is done, it's all singles or 2 ply from here.

It's that time of year again!  Spinzilla!!

Start with day 2, cause it's the better picture. Smiley  10 ounces of corriedale wool! all spun in under 5 hours today.

And day 1, was only 4 ounces, spun and plied into a 4 ply yarn, of Shropshire wool.  And I made a wicked meal for a spinzilla day... kinda foolish... but you know... it was delicious... 

5 more days to go!

See, CraftyLittleMonkey spoiled me too!

First, the box! She made so much it didn't fit into the envelope...  Shocked

Next, these awesome pieces of fibre art. I'm so totally just framing the sun. I have ideas for the flower scenes.

4 lovely scratch books.  One might end up in my purse for jotting notes, one might end up full of poetry, and who knows what the others will be filled with!

A lovely ribbon with flowers on it, and the fabulous paper clip, and some vintage  buttons!

And lastly, a whole book! A whole book turned into a Junk Journal!! I've always wanted to make one of these, now I get I head start and I get to fill it full of tidbits and things!

See, spoiled rotten too.... Thanks so much CLM!

10  Needle felted me! in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: September 07, 2016 06:08:29 PM
Underthemountain and Alteredmommy ran a fabulous swap called the Craftster Trading Card Swap in August. The idea was to send a trading card with your image on it, and some stats about you on the back. (kind of like a baseball or hockey card) It was a really fun swap with a flood of snail mail.  For my card i decided to go with a medium that I like, but never do enough of: Needle Felting.

This is my needle felted me!

I manipulated the image in Pixelmatr, which is a photoshop like program, adding the back ground and frame, and words to achieve this:

Then I printed off around 35 of my images (and the back image) onto sticker paper, and did some paper craft magic to make them all the right size, and shipped them all off! It was an excellent swap!
