Winter is here!

Ive been enjoying the cold days of winter. Well, since my last post I had been healing from an oral surgery in which until this day, there still a little bump in my jaw. Fortunately  for me I was able to rely on my spinning and some felting while I was healing.

Собака мордой в самоё себя

Вот такой неожиданный арт принесла работа с собачьей шерстью. Пока я пристреливалась к цвету, объектив нащупал тропу в таинственный лес собачьих секретов ) Ость и пух, навитые на хлопок. Не лучшее сочетание, но фактура хороша. Рыжая крашена хной. 2 стирки, год вылёживалась до третьей стирки. Цвет не уходит. read more »

Got some spinning done

Getting some spinning done

Ive been trying to get caught up with my spinning. This is my Tuscany SW Merino: This is from my last SAL Alice in Wonderland. I want to knit a pair of socks with this yarn, and my goal has been to spin fingering weight yarn. This is the first skein of two and right now Im [] read more »

Summer is just around the corner!

I cant believe it! Where the time has gone? I just realized it after I got a friendly reminder from a client about our next SAL (Spin Along). So I started right away coming up with colors and working on my graphics. And here it is! The SAL will be run at our Ravelry group. There is [] read more »

Hand Spun

Ive been spinning for a few years now, and my stash of hand-spun yarn keeps growing and growing. I know this is not news for any of us that spin our yarn, but Im selling and using less of my stash and producing more. When I want to knit something in particular, it gives me a special joy [...] read more »

Soften Up that Stiff, Scratchy Acrylic Yarn.

I live in the middle of butt-freaking nowhere, and the only yarn that’s regularly stocked is Red Heart Super Saver. Sure, they carry Lion Brand Hometown USA and a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft, but once that’s bought up they won’t restock it for months because Red Heart is all anyone around here really buys. There are lots of crocheters in Southwestern VA, crochet uses a LOT of yarn, and a lot of smaller stores around here only carry good ‘ol Red Heart Super Saver and nothing else. A lot of people in t... read more »

The finished piece

I finally put the piece together. Well, actually I just had to seam the two sides where the armholes are. Im very happy with the colors, however, I could add a few more stitches at the bottom of the piece for a more comfortable fit. But I like how the fabric drapes without the feeling of [...] read more »

Knitting with local wool

Ive been itching to knit something using this new yarn that I bought a couple months ago. I felt that a shrug would be very appropriate since the weight of the yarn (fingering) seemed light enough for a pattern with an easy lace stitch. Easy peasy Twirl yarn is made with local wool (Napa Valley) [...] read more »

DIY Yarn Lightshade

Have you guys discovered Pinterest yet? Im totally addicted. Every time I pop on there I find another 50 projects that I just have to do and some of them are so simple. Therere a few projects on there that come up time and time again and I keep telling myself that I must get around to soon. The other night Big Guy had a lot of catching up to do on the Sky+ box and I figured that it was as good a time as any for me to get stuck into one of the pins that I see all the time and looks easy-peasy. (It also he... read more »

Navajo Ply goes wild…

Ive been very inspired with Navajo plying lately and Im finding that the possibilities are endless. The whole process is really fun. It can be a little bit daunting, and this is because you have to build your dexterity before you are happy with the results, but once you get the hang out of it, [...] read more »

Funny Daisy and New Yarn Waiting to be Used

Here's a photo of Daisy doing a funny walk with her trousers legs pulled up. I was standing in the kitchen talking, and all of a sudden Daisy appeared in the doorway, exactly like this, and said "boo!", I thought it was so funny I burst out laughing - what a cute, funny girl!!! She did it again in the front room and I was lucky to get a photo of her this time. She's teething at the moment - her canine teeth - so is doing a lot of dribbling which you can see on her top. Daisy I bought the yarn in the f... read more »

I dont understand why people should pay to go shopping when they are trying to support crafters. Im [...] read more »

The gathering of fiber lovers…

The Fiber Fair at Windrush Farm was a success! Im not talking about the amount of sales here, Im referring to the fact that this event attracted spinners, knitters and many, many fiber enthusiasts that came from far away to visit us. It was nice meeting people that told me that have been reading the [...] read more »

Spinning at the Farm

What a pleasure is to meet my friends to do nothing but spin and talk about fibers for the whole day. We met at Windrush Farm on Wednesday morning and set our spinning wheels near the swimming pool. It was a great way to enjoy one of the lasts day of summer. The day [...] read more »

Blending fibers

One of my biggest pleasures of spinning is the fiber preparation that goes beforehand. Finding the right compliment that wont overshadow each of the fibers that I have chosen to blend together can be a little tricky with some risks involved. Here is where planning, discovery, and a little bit of serendipity takes me to [...] read more »

This and that

Crocheted Nappy/Diaper Cover

On Friday I bought a wonderful 'PDF PATTERN for Crochet Baby Diaper Cover' from Tafferty Designs on Etsy, and have just completed my own nappy cover. I used Rowan's Colourscape Chunky in 'Cherry', which is 100% lambswool, after looking around my local John Lewis yarn section and speaking with one of the assistants. The pattern did call for a cotton yarn, but I wanted to try out the pattern in a multi-coloured yarn and they only had wool so thought I'd give it a go anyway. I also bought a hank of th... read more »
