good morning glory!
I have a few pictures to share with you – they represent the weekend’s fiber endeavors.
On Friday, Joy came over to light a fire under my ass in the spinning department. Months and months ago, I bought and spun some alpaca. Well, I finally finished spinning it and then Joy showed me some plying techniques. Click here for a close up. I have 206 yards of it — any thoughts?
She also got me to do a little stash diving and now, I am in the middle of spinning some great roving that I bought at Maryland – last year! ~I have to get this stuff finished before Rhinebeck~ Here are the details – it is 50% wool and 50% mohair. The color is called Red Turnip. If I remember correctly, I think I fell in love with the name and yes, I am that shallow! Care for a closer look?
While being face down in a pile of stash, I came across two skeins of Decadent Fiber – I forgot to take it outback with me during the photo shoot, so pictures tomorrow. I completely forgot I even had this stuff. Please tell me this happens to everyone else too! I am thinking of knitting this [thanks craftybitch!] After I get the pictures up, perhaps you will either tell me it’s perfect or give me some good ideas.
Anyway, gotta run — Daughter #1 is having a bon-voyage party here tomorrow and things need to get done. Why not let her just do it herself? Because they need to get done MY WAY.
