11  Re: May 2007 Dye Along - Spring in Dyeing: Completed Projects by eatmoreplants on: May 28, 2007 06:00:45 PM
I haven't been to this thread in awhile and I missed all of the awesome dyed roving! I must see it once it's spun up too!

I dyed some of my handspun with wilton's dyes last night and I LOVE the way it turned out.

 those are two seperate skeins but they are hanging together to dry. I think I am going to make a garden scarf from them.

I have gotten so into spinning and dyeing that I haven't knit or crocheted anything in months. It's so sad Sad

Everyone's yarns look amazing! I am loving the novelty yarns!

I think I am fiber friday cursed. Every fiber friday something happens that makes it impossible for me to post. This time I was getting ready to post and uploading pictures from my main computer when IT DIED. I mean majorly died, it won't turn on and I think it's bad. Ugh. So sadly I can't show you everything I did this week- only what got uploaded before the crash.

I got a spinning wheel this week so I haven't been online very much. I LOVE my wheel so much. I really do. I dream about it. I enjoy spinning with it SO much more than with my drop spindle.

here is my first attempt at spinning with a wheel

This is my second time plying and my second skein on the wheel I am in love with this one Smiley

This one was done on my handspindle and I dyed it myself with wilton dyes.

14  Dyed Yarns in Dyeing: Completed Projects by eatmoreplants on: April 25, 2007 06:29:55 PM
Here are the some yarns I dyed this week-

I call this one 'little star'

This one is for a swap- "natural teal" (not very creative I know)

This is one of the first yarns I spun myself. I also dyed it!

You can't really see this last one- but I have no idea where my pictures of it went. Its the blue and blue on the bottom left of the following picture.

You like?

16  My first yarns! in Spinning: Completed Projects by eatmoreplants on: April 23, 2007 12:57:50 PM
I learned to spin this week and I am officially addicted.

This is an unknown kind of wool that I spun and dyed and turned into an ipod cozy for my friend.

This is my tiny little sample ball of alpaca.

This is a mix of random (really crappy) fibers that I had a hard time spinning because of the bad quality of the fiber.

This yarn started out as a big bag of fluff, it wasn't stuck together or anything like roving it was just a curly fluffy mess, but I tried to spin it anyhow, even though its out of my league. It doesn't look all bad.

I love spinning so much that I spun ALL of the fiber that I bought to learn within two days! I have 20 lbs in the mail on its way and I can't wait to get spinning some more and experiment with plying and different techniques! I am spinning with a drop spindle right now, but I am taking classes at my local weavers guild where I get to learn to use many different spinning wheels!

17  DON'T LOOK YARNMAFIA!!!!!- everyone else- LOOK!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by eatmoreplants on: April 21, 2007 02:07:59 PM
I have been knitting for 7 years now. I learned to crochet at the start of January. Since then I have been obsessed with it. It is very different from knitting and I really enjoy being able to do both. One thing that bothered me was stitch markers. I love using stitch markers in my knitting but in crochet the only stitch marker I could make use of. I decided to make a stitch marker that would work well with crochet and knitting. I saw a tutorial for it somewhere online but they were advertised as being for knitting. I think they work well for crochet because you can use them like you would with a safety pin, but they are cute and your work won't get snagged on them like it does with a safety pin.

Sorry if its too image heavy- I just got a new camera yesterday and I am going a little overboard!

18  skirt from a dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by eatmoreplants on: March 28, 2007 10:20:40 PM
I am really new to sewing. In fact this is the first thing I have actually completed (in my adult years). I took an old dress and turned it into a simple drawstring skirt. I am really happy with the results and it took me all of 15 minutes! This is major to me as I am a knitter/crocheter by trade and 15 minute projects NEVER happen! I hope you like it!

I am almost done! the edging is taking forever and I am almost out of yarn! I don't think I am going to have enough to finish. I bought 6 skeins and my LYS ordered some more in the same dye lot so I'll go pick it up tomorrow and finish up. I made a combination of the small and the medium and it is still bigger than I would prefer. I am going to make the black in small. Here are some pictures. I am really proud!
