1  Fiber Saturday June 28th 2014 in Spinning: Completed Projects by AmberKat on: June 28, 2014 10:50:54 AM
Well Hello everyone! I've been mostly lurking, but now I have another project of mine to share! It feels like my first real project on my new(ish) spinning wheel. It started out as some plain undyed off-white roving.
Here is a before picture, after I spun it but before I dyed it. A little overspun in some places, and thick and thin too.
 I <3 it though.

It's also my first foray into kool-aid dying. It's so much fun! I tried to go for a kind of ombre effect, between black cherry and orange. Alas I did not know black cherry is such a strong color! It almost worked Wink

So what is everyone up to?

2  Stacking Rainbow Toy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by AmberKat on: March 24, 2014 06:21:38 PM
Hello all! This is my first venture into sewn toys, and boy was it a challenge! I made this for a personal swap I did with jexxican, who in turn sent me some very lovely yarn. The pattern was created by me, which probably was half the project honestly. But when you can't find anything like what you want online you have to make do, right? Smiley Onto the pictures!

It ends up about 11" tall, and I think 12" at it's widest. It can stand by itself.

All the pieces come apart. It has no velcro or magnets or anything to keep it together.

Aaaand one with the zebra I also made for the swap cause I'm all proud of it Smiley

It didn't turn out quite like I expected (do they ever?), but I learned so much! Comments and (constructive) Criticism are appreciated. Smiley

3  Fiber Wednesday? November 20th 2013 in Spinning: Completed Projects by AmberKat on: November 20, 2013 03:07:46 PM
Hello all! I'm pretty new to spinning, and wanted to show off my first plied yarn (my second and third spin in all), done on a drop spindle. It's so pretty! I got the fiber sometime in May, and while I thought I had written down what kind of wool it was, I apparently didn't Tongue It's sheep. XD I spun singles over the summer and a couple of months ago plied them together on my drop spindle. THAT was an adventure, with a kitten underfoot. I just remembered to post, because I'm using it to make my husband's Christmas present. He thinks the yarn is 'manly' Wink Without further ado, my yarn:

Yay! I can participate! Cheesy
This was my first time spinning. I got this awesome beginners spinning kit from the wonderful jexxican when I was visiting New Mexcio. I am in <3! I've gone through pretty well all the roving I got with the kit and I'm addicted. {to yet another fiber craft Wink } I can't wait to get  more. It's just plain ol undyed wool roving, single ply.  Smiley

jexxican I love what you did with the batts! They're gorgeous!

5  Mini tophat of DOOM in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by AmberKat on: May 22, 2008 01:02:55 AM
Ok, maybe it's not really a top hat of DOOM, but it comes pretty close. Cheesy
I made this September '07 I think. I changed it a little, using a craft weight felt with interfacing, because I couldn't find any heavy weight stuff.
Made from the tutorial by GirlOutLaw https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=200095.40
 Without further ado, here is my top hat, modeled by my lovely roadrash bear.
