Pretty caked yarn

I decided to knit up my corridale into a scarf, and I’m tickled at how pretty the yarn looks all caked up. Not bad for this beginner spinner!

Spindle Work

A little action on my turkish spindle this week since I couldn’t get time to use my wheel.

From Fluff to Yarn

Merino

I started spinning my first ever rolags in a colourway called Monet’s Lily Pond. So far I’m learning a lot, I need a lot of twist into the singles. I’m hoping to get a 3 ply striping yarn for socks with this, but we’ll see how it goes…

More Yarn

It’s drying now to set the twist, a skein of Bright Idea I, 100% corriedale (LOVE) it poofed up so much!

New Fiber

I’ve been experimenting with different types of fiber preparation and yesterday these amazing rolags showed up in the mail. I’ve never spun from a rolag before, but I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’m thinking self striping sock yarn, if I’m lucky enough.

Coffee Socks

Now that I’ve finally finished knitting my sweater, it’s time to move on with some coffee socks. I am knitting these in a grey/pink combination and I can’t wait to see how they turn out! I haven’t done a lot of colour work in the past, so I hope I can do them justice.

Finished my Love Note Sweater!

I absolutely love how this sweater turned out. It’s incredibly soft, warm, and just beautiful. It took me just over two months to knit in fingering weight because I barely get any time for knitting, but I am proud that I completed it, and now it makes me want to have an entire wardrobe of hand knits to wear.

Time to Ply

I finally finished spinning up this amazing 100% corriedale fiber – and now it’s ready for plying. I’m trying to reach myself Navajo plying so I can do a 3ply, but it’s slow, so I might spin the rest of my galaxy braid in the meantime (that one will also be a 3ply but I have lots of that fiber).

Making a Sweater

One sleeve down, a second to go, along with the collar. I love how this is knitting up so far.
