New Yarns! May 30, 2008

Here’s a taste of some of the things I’ve been working on since I last blogged. I have two close ups, since my camera has been really sucking lately and refusing to take good pictures when it’s not in micro mode.

This is more of that merino/viscose roving that I ordered from shpherder on Ebay a while back. I just ordered some more roving from her today, I’m so excited! Seriously, that stuff is gorgeous.

This was my first time experimenting with plying with beads! I really like the way it turned out, although for some reason I could NOT get a decent picture of it for the life of me! The wool’s a little rough, but I still think it’s a really fun yarn. I’m excited to spin more yarns with beads, especially those fish that I bought! I can’t figure out what color wool to spin them with. I love that I have a wheel with a delta orifice so I don’t have to worry that things are too big to spin into my yarn! Now I just need a jumbo hook for my wheel…

Have a great weekend!

 

Internet! Hooray! May 27, 2008

After a recent move that left me without internet for a few excruciating weeks, the Comcast guy finally came this morning and hooked up our wireless connection! Hooray! That means that I’ll finally be able to update my Etsy shop again, and I’ll be able to show off all of the wonderful yarns I’ve been spinning with my brand new wheel! Get excited, I have lots of stuff to show you over the next few weeks!

Enjoy your Tuesday!
