I went into my craft room, and took a look at these lovely skeins, and thought I need to take some pictures.
These skeins were all dyed with Koolaid, and then handcarded, then spun up into 2 ply. Except for the green it's single ply as I was getting lazy, and wanted to be done.
I've been practicing with the whole spinning thing as I'm a newby (Aug.07), and the more I do the better I get. I love spinning, and the only thing that stops me is that my knitting falls behind. Recently I found Dodile's Blog. This woman is astounding in her spinning talent. Dodile's from France, her page is in french, but after translation it's well worth the visit. I like it because she posts lots of pictures.
I have to say I'm fortunate in that I have a extended family member who raises Alpaca's and I've knitted with her spun fiber. It truly is a luxury spinning Alpaca, and I had some sample stuff tucked away that she had given me which I spun up recently......This is two ply, 10 wpi, worsted weight, spun from Joyce's Alpaca's Big Boy, and Desert Shadow. I'm looking forward to this weekend as Joyce is sending a raw fleece for me to play with. It's a white clip so if I want I can dye it, but right now I'm looking forward to spinning up something in a natural colour. I'll post pictures when it arrives.
But for now......I think I would like to join Noodles in her favourite hobby.....Have a peaceful weekend everybody!!!
