1  Re: quickie dress that anybody can make in Clothing Sewalongs by LadyBean32 on: May 03, 2007 05:00:06 PM
Ok.. I've tried the dress on again and pulled it up higher before wrapping. I'll still need wider straps to cover the boobage more thoroughly and, I'd like use a fabric that's not so stretchy, but so far it seems ok. And it appears long enough to wear as a dress. Sorry the bottom is cut off.. the 10 year old took these pics Smiley)

ETA: Another thing I wanted to ask... Doesn't the 'sleeve' area kind of restrict your arm movement? I CAN move, but if I do, the edges slip up into a halter style. Or is it just the choice of fabric? I'd hate to have to tie it so tight as to bind my arms.

Ok here's my lowly contribution: one measly skein. Considering all I've worked on the last few months, I don't even remember when I finished most of them. But I finished this up yesterday so enjoy!

100% Romney, colorway Sangria, from Spunky Eclectic. I love Spunky fiber!!

Navajo plied, chunky-weight, yardage not yet known(forgive me)

edited to fix pic. remember to use BBcode, not HTML

My very first handspun FO: socks!

2-ply of Columbia fiber, dyed with Koolaid and a bit of Rit(the pinkish). Spun and plied on a spindle.. (it's a little lighter than fingering). Wooo that took for-EVER! Cheesy

Everyone's yarns and fibers look great so far.


OMGOMG OMG.. I have yarn that looks EXACTLY like that.  Shocked Shocked

Let me guess, is that the millends fromSheepShed studio?? If so, I KNEW it! what a small world; great minds think alike!!
For a minute I was sitting here wondering,"How'd my yarn get up there? I didn't post anything this week..."  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Ok!! I'm in!

First up, is some mysterywool with silk thrums I got from Rhinebeck in Oct 2006. I had a lot of fun spinning this. I don't know how many yards are in this hank, I still have way more to ply before I want to count up the total. I'm hoping to use this to make up my own shawl pattern.. Something that will accentuate the texture of the yarn. it's soft in some areas, a bit stringy in others but I'm still new at this spinning thing!


More mystery wool, only this was gifted to me. I had the pleasure of washing, carding and dyeing this myself, with KoolAid flavors, Mango and Tamarind mixture. Not sure what I'll do with this.. not very much yardage there.


A small merino batt I was also gifted. You probably can't tell but one skein is somewhat darker than the other.. but no matter, I'll work around that somehow. Smiley

6  Fiber Friday 12/29 in Spinning: Completed Projects by LadyBean32 on: December 29, 2006 05:10:05 AM
Oh wow, I'm the first to start the topic!? Yay! So, without further adieu...

the reddish on the right became:

Some SheepshedStudio mill ends I got a while back. I used 3 different Kool Aid colors, though at the moment the flavors elude me. I'm sure I can reproduce something similar.

The yarn's a thick-n-thin type yarn, going from bulky to about sport weight. Not sure what it'll be..

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and got me some of the fiber from SheepShed Studio... I'm really new to wheel spinning so I suppose that has a lot to do with the outcome. But honestly, I don't know what I was thinking.. the mohair component of the fiber is going to drive me nutto Cheesy Cheesy

see some I dyed up:

Oh well. I started with some of the black/white blend and I also have a lb. of the 'white'. We'll see if that behaves better.

Otherwise, though, I'd say that the fiber is generally good. And boy, they ship fast!!

Cool yarn, great colors!!

This is the corriedale I've spun up so far. Navajo plied.

I'll be spinning and plying the rest of it the same way.
