Howdy!

I’ve finally got a finished skein of yarn to share…the fibre I showed two posts ago well it’s taken me forever to get it spun due to everyday life getting in the way…

this yarn was meant to be coils and when it came time to ply I completely forgot to ply the way my spinoff 2009 magazine showed me, so now my coils are what I like to call witchettygrubs😂🤣 …oh well its plyed and balanced so I’m sure someone will love it and buy it at the 2019 beanie festival…

Tonight I’ll get out some more fibre & my copy of The spinners book of yarn designs and try some of the yarn ideas in it as I’m thinking of making more art style yarns coming into this new year..

I need to start spinning..and stop buying!..

I’ve turned into the type of spinner that buys all these gorgeous fibres and then doesn’t have enough time on the weekend to ACTUALLY spin them!..

So no more wasting most of my weekend on Instagram..because I spend a heck of a lot of time looking at spinning, knitting, crochet, weaving etc that other fibre artists out there post.

So what did I buy… I bought some gorgeous handdyed fibres from The Shepherds Hut ..some are shetland and some are merino/bamboo..

Love em..now to spin them!

last night I spun up this merino that I dyed ages ago…not sure what fibre I’ll spin and ply this with?.. I’ll dig through my fibre stash tonight and see what I have…

Today on my way home from the gym I pulled into the pet store and bought some goldfish for my garden pond..I’m happy to report that so far all 6 are swimming around and enjoying life!

Sunday spinning

I went and visited my friend Kathy at her art studio yesterday. I’ve been so busy and so has she so we haven’t seen each other in a few months so we had plenty of gossip to share! 😉…

So while I was there I managed to get most of the rolags from my last post spun and I added some assorted blue finnx fleece to the bobbin as well. I’m going to ply it with some other fibres that I’m spinning tonight.

Ugggh I’ve been finishing work late each day and by the time I get home the winter sun just hasn’t been bright enough to take a pic of my first finished TDF yarn.

I’ll pop a pic on here by the weekend.

Meanwhile look at my pretty cineraria flowers 💕💕.. this pic was taken tonight after I re-potted and watered them. I love how the water on the petals and leaves made the flowers look to me like they are a painting.
