Still working hard to build up some stock for the local farmers market. Starts in two weeks, so I'm crafting like crazy.

Noodle Princess - I always like the marbled swirls of rainbow in your yarn. Beautiful.

Sunrise - Merino, alpaca, soy silk, and sparkle spun from a Hobbledehoy Batt. (Photo pre setting the twist)

Midnight - BFL and Falkland. 205 yards corespun.

Bengal - Punta and falkland wool

Mystic - BFL, romney, alpaca, falkland. I used some raw wool in this skein so there's tons of texture.

Hey fiber fiends,

I have a few this week. Have been spinning a ton trying to get ready for the farmers market this summer. I'm pretty excited to spin in the sunshine and educate people about spinning and hand spun yarn.

Un named - 100% Finn wool spun extremely thick and thin  Oh so soft  still have to set the twist

All Dressed - I spun this from batts I carded - bamboo, merino, corriedale, falkland, sparkle, and tons of alpaca.

Get off of my cloud - My fav this week - Falkland, bamboo, merino, romney, and corriedale dyed blue with massive white/gray cocoons raw merino, falkland, romney and sparkle. I'm waiting on some felting needles to arrive and then I think I might try to shape the cocoons a little.

Hey all!

Have a few this week.

Bumbo - another name for a marble. I used to collect marbles when I was a kid and was inspired by finding my old collection.

Moss - 185 yards - romney, falkland, and corriedale

Not named - I was inspired this week to spin a two ply as I always seem to spin thick and thin singles. I think that I might make the hat out of Intertwined with it. Love it!

Ah, it's been awhile. I've been doing loads of spinning , but was camera-less as my partner was backpacking around Germany. I've been spinning yarn for a local doll maker. Haven't taken any photos of that yarn, but here's a link to her flickr page - http://www.flickr.com/photos/figandme/ So pretty!

Friday! Wheeee!

So I have three this week. I spent some quality time with my drum carder last week.

Ice Hockey - corridale, BFL, targhee, merino, silk, firestar, mohair (carded and locks), and angora. So soft and fluffy.

Ice Hockey part two - Same as above, but corespun

Like Buttah or Glass Slipper (I haven't decided yet)- Silk, hemp, tencil, bfl, corridale, and merino corespun.
So out of this world soft and creamy.

Hey all,

Here's what I've made as of late...

Jem and the Holigrams - fingerless gloves/wristwarmers

Socks in progress

Punky Brewter fingerless gloves - made with merino/corridale/tencil - so soft and shiny

Hey All,

Haven't been spinning much lately. We're rebuilding our bathroom and I've been knitting tons of gifts lately. Busy busy.

isamax - I love the fulled alpaca. The colour and texture is awesome.

So here's what I have for this week....

Grass and Sky - Spun from some batts that I carded ages ago. Corridale, BFL, Soy Silk, and Tencil. Thick and thin - worsted to extra bulky. Ever so soft

Same as above but solid green. Lovely!
