1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Trying Again? Francesca Lia Block Swap on: June 26, 2006 04:17:08 PM
Okay, so i just finished reading another FLB book, and thought what a great swap idea.. then searched craftster to see that it has already been attempted, with less than perfect results (i.e there were no gallery posts! it just seemed to fall through the cracks).

Would anyone be interested in crafting some of your Francesca Lia Block inspirations?

(anxiously awaiting replies, while i begin yet another book!)

'la spiaggia'

hand-dyed corriedale, mill end wool, hand-dyed uncarded curly mohair locks, plied with sparkly blue thread.

(la spiaggia means 'the beach' in italian)
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / thin yarn. lace weight? sport weight? on: March 22, 2006 01:02:50 PM
this is the thinnest yarn i have spun so far. it is spun from corriedale that i dyed before spinning. i like the tweed-like effect that it took on after plying.

i am still trying to wrap my head around the best way to figure out weight. what do you all do? this one is about a 15 wpi, which supposedly makes it a sport weight, but it looks like it would make nice lace.

7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / hemp blend on: February 14, 2006 07:45:34 PM
hey there
i'm a long time lurker who has finally decided to post some of my backlogged images of handspun yarn! hopefully i will make a habit of it.

here is some hemp and romney that i spun back in the fall. it was one of the first yarns that i made on my then new wheel..i really liked the texture of the hemp blend. it was dyed after spinning and i love the way the skeins look, as the hemp doesn't take the dye, but the wool does so it got kind of a silvery sheen to it. the colours are a bit darker in real life...
i gave this yarn to my daughter's waldorf school for a silent auction..
