A little Bit of Spinning

I haven't had much time to craft lately. I've been super busy with the rest of life. I dream of crafting but don't get much done in real life.

I spun these up last month and part of this month and got a chance to sit down and post some pix.

The first is a 100%wool from Mountain Meadow that I Hand Dyed with some warm firey colors. A mix of oranges, yellows, browns and black. I didn't really care for this fiber and probably won't ever spin it again. I do love the colors. I did the 2 skeins at different times. The first is a chunky weight and came out to be about 142 yards. The second came out a more worsted weight and about 184 yards.










Up next I have some yummy BFL/Silk that was Hand Dyed by the wonderfully talented Angelina at Wildflower Whimsy. I love her work and decided to sign up for a 3 month fiber club. This is her January 2011 fiber "Grey Cracker" It was a dream to spin and turned out to be some gorgeous yummy muted tones of silver, blues and burgundy. I think it is around 200 yards, maybe worsted weight ( I haven't measured it yet)







Thanks for looking! I've been cutting out some fabric with hopes of doing some sewing!

  1. I love your pictures. Your yarn is very yummy as well. I tried to dye yarn once and it did not look good at all ;)
