2  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / My first woven shawl :) on: March 20, 2009 09:50:32 AM
I made this shawl for my baby's room with Caron simply soft in solid and paints.  I used a 24" Ashford Rigid Heddle loom Smiley
Here it is on the rocking chair

My selvedges were wonky at first but they looked pretty good once I got the hang of things Smiley

I just knotted a fringe, I want to hemstitch my next project to see how that looks Smiley

3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / How long did it take to get your WooLee winder??? on: February 23, 2009 06:11:56 AM
Um, yeah, the title pretty much says it all.  A WooLee winder is my tax refund gift this year so I just ordered it and am wondering how long those of you that have one had to wait Smiley

Thanks Smiley
4  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Missed Friday so I'm sharing today :) on: February 21, 2009 11:04:57 AM
First thing I've spun in a while.  It's a superwash merino bamboo blend hand dyed by this etsy seller :  http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5368210

I am expecting another girl in July and wanted to spin something soft and washable to make her a shawl wrap.  Here is the result so far, not thru knitting but I did start already Smiley

TFL, this is the first time I've had my wheel out in ages and I really enjoyed it Smiley
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Toddler Spinning Funny.... on: February 21, 2009 08:53:20 AM
I haven't spun in forever as my toddlers who are 13 months apart got a bit too into the wheel for a while there.  I finally broke my wheel out again this week as they are getting a little older and better able to keep their hands off the wheel.  My daughter who is three and very into sleeping beauty walked into the living room and shouted "oh no mommy, don't touch it" when she saw me spinning  Grin
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A halter top, gauchos and a cloche hat! What a cutie! on: August 12, 2008 05:23:57 PM

9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Bulky Yarn Sorbet :) on: January 22, 2007 02:08:25 PM
Here is yarn I spun on my drop spindle.  I dyed the wool roving with Wiltons and then spun it up super thick and chunky.  It's very slubby and unspun in parts which is what I was going for so I'm loving it.  It feels like a cloud when you smoosh it.  I plied it with silver and gold metallic thread and a few faux pearls.
