2ply vs Coils

so which one do you like best?.. πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ…I was thinking of knitting a beanie band with the two ply and then the main hat part with the coilsπŸ€”… or I’m going to sell both skeins together at the local beanie fest in June as they are spun from the same 2 original dyed Ramboulliet braids that I bought from the shepherd’s hut

If I had to choose… well… I personally love them bothπŸ‘πŸ˜‰

coils are my new jam!

Oh My Goodness!!.. I think art yarn style yarns are definitely going to be my new style for 2019!..

This is sad considering I’ve been spinning now for at least 14years and always stuck with making standard 2 or 3 ply yarns as that’s what most people seemed to knit with and selling my handspun yarns helps my hobby and allows me to buy more fibres to spin then sell…

I’ve realised today by doing this I’m killing my creative side and so now I’m going to spin and make yarns that I want to make..If they sell that’s great if not I’m not going to worry about it because I can afford to buy fibres to spin it’s not like I can’t and selling them is just an extra bonus..

So today is the day that I finally break free from my own creative chains and head off in a new direction doing what I want and how I want..

Well done Me! πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

let’s make coils..

😊its plying day! ..I finished making the thick & thin rambouillet singles last night that I’m going to use as the coils.

Im hoping these look like rose buds when done.

also my sunflowers have decided to sprout again?πŸ€” ..and my marigold seedlings are loving this Autumn weather..they have doubled in size within the past few days..πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜πŸ’›

Ok I’m off to get these coils done..chat later..πŸ‘‹

“sunshine daisies, butter mellow”…

turn these fibres into…..πŸ§™β€β™€οΈπŸ’₯⚑⚘

Last night I spun up my leftover sunshine mellow rambouillet fibre that I used in the mini skeins.

I’ve decided Im going to ply it with with another braid of Ramboulliet named red leaves that I also purchased from @cjpfibres…its so easy to spin this fibre..I think it might be my favourite fibre for 2019!.. 😊 More pics soon!

woops I did it again..

…oh yeh and I’m glad I did!!..

I bought these at the start of December with my Birthday money as early Christmas presents to me! They arrived today all the way from “sunny” England..

I bought them on Etsy from the lovely Caroline of The Shepherds Hut UK.. on Instagram she’s @cjpfibres

I have to say this isn’t the first time I’ve bought from Caroline and wont be the last!.. love them all so much!
