I miss TX in the spring time Sad I grew up just north of San Antonio... Blue bonnets! I want this yarn.

I live in San Antonio and the wildflowers are gorgeous this year! Last year there were almost NO flowers! So bumming. Im glad to see there are more this year Smiley

I miss Texas so bad!!! I just planted some bluebonnets today in my back yard that I picked up when I went home to Houston in January....divine yarns!

I took several pictures of the bluebonnets this year! I had to make a yarn to match. Im glad you like it!! Smiley

OK, gotta ask.  How do you get such wonderful pictures??  Do you use a photo box?

I'm loving your yarns!

Had a bonus day at Farmer's Market today where I sold 4 skeins of yarn!  I'm stoked!!

Thank you!

So, I use a sort-of photobox. I made one out of a cardboard box and freezer paper. I don't use any lightbulbs, I just set the makeshift photobox in the window and use natural light! Making a photobox is pretty easy. Much less scary than I originally thought. (and cheap too!)

Congrats on selling the yarn!

Ditto on the drooling!! lol Lovely. I think the mint julep is my favorite!

Same!! Mint julep is my favorite too. They are all rolled up here but are so fluffy in person.

Thank you, Belruel and Dragonflywer!

I probably wont spin these up myself. I like to play with fiber more than I like to turn it into projects right now... haha It's a serious problem.
7  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Jason's Scarf on: March 29, 2010 07:52:24 AM
Awhile back I made a scarf for my dear friend Jason. He is an amazing guy and I wanted to make something for him so I decided on a hand woven scarf.

I chose several natural coloured alpaca fleeces and scoured the fiber. I cleaned and carded the fleeces then spun them up by colour. I spun fiber up to about a worsted weight 2-ply yarn, maybe a little under worsted, then wove it on my Ashford rigid heddle loom

5 alpaca fleeces handspun in their natural colours woven into a lovely plaid.

I'm so pleased with how it turned out!
