Tsuki,

I have my loom hung on my wall as well. I live in a small apartment and I am hard pressed for space! Hanging the loom works out perfectly! I can take a picture of it for you to see what I have done with my loom space. I also occasionally hang yarn on the loom too. heheheh It just looks so pretty!! I can't help it!

Good luck with loom purchasing!

Happy Fiber Friday!!!!!!! Let me kick this off!!

It has been a busy week! Here's what I've been up to:


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Baby Bird
73 yds
Hand dyed by me
Superwash Merino

This stuff is disgustingly soft! This is the second softest skein I've ever spun out before. Second only to the skein I spun out of pure silk. The softness of this one almost doesn't make sense! I just want to roll around it in and giggle!! ... I mean uh... look over there!!!




-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Halelujah!
232 yds
Merino, Silk, Bamboo, Firestar, Angelina

I got this loooovely fiber at a local fiber festival a few months back! The Kid n Ewe Fiber Festival. I look forward to this festival every year! I'm lucky to have it so close by. The colour of these singles was somewhat hard to photograph, simply because it's so sparkly. It tricks the camera!



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Concord
Merino + Tussah
I forgot to measure the yardage. Doh!!

This is my favorite colour this week. This colour is absolutely decadent! The merino and tussah make a luxurious blend in these soft fluffy spun singles. I don't know if I'll keep this one for myself or sell it off. Hmm.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Eclipse
123 yards
4 oz.
100% hand painted Romney from Spunky Eclectic fiber club - August 2008 installment

I love working with Romney but I never know what to do with the yarn. This was a dream to spin!! It practically spun itself. Left to myself I would not have chosen the colours, but they ended up spinning up nicely. I started it on my spindle and then transfered it to the wheel when I was reminded how much I don't love spindle spinning.






Bieow Bieow is pleased!

xoxo

I have only used the Ashford loom but I love it! I have the 32" rigid heddle and have no complaints. It's a great loom!
38  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Who's Got An Ashford?? on: March 18, 2009 07:43:42 PM
Me! Me! Oh I have an ashford.

I've had it for about... a year and a half I suppose. I can't quite remember when I got the wheel really. I would have shared her earlier but I just got a camera yesterday! Yay more fiber fridays!!

This is Doreen. Named after an Old 97's song.

Ah thats the exact way that I pull my hand cards into roving!

 I prefer to do it that way rather than spin rolags. I hate spinning rolags.
