long time no post. life and work had been suuuuuuuper busy and knitting and spinning had gone by the wayside. now that we're into July, and the "big meeting that pays my salary" is over, i have time to knit and spin again! maybe i'll actually finish my shetland triangle sometime soon!
it's also been fracking hot and humid in PA and that has made me not want to knit - plus, it's Tour de Fleece! so i've been spinning lots more than knitting (although, i did finish one baby blankey and start on another - good old no thinking garter stitch).
here is some yummy spinning goodness:
|corriedale spun on my great wheel|
|the "new" GW is in the front of the "old" gw. |
i just need to get a drive band and a little piece to keep the wheel on and i think we're in business!
|...this! a 2-ply wensleydale from Into the Whirled |
in the Doctor Who inspired colorway Mercy Hartigan
|black welsh mountain and tussah silk blend from HilltopCloud|
single was spun months ago, but finally plied it this week
|north ronaldsay from Gnomespun - my first "successful" attempt at long draw on the Lendrum|
|BFL from HilltopCloud naturally dyed with marigolds|
|will become a 3-ply yarn with the other 2 braids above (also |
naturally dyed - both with berberis)
