Just having fun and making more art yarn style yarns this Easter..
I watched Aquaman for the first time this weekend.. The colours in the movie really inspired me to dig in the stash and make some shell shaped spirals.. Im loving them, might make some more!
so which one do you like best?.. 😁👌…I was thinking of knitting a beanie band with the two ply and then the main hat part with the coils🤔… 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 both👍😉
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! 👍😊
😊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?🤔 ..and my marigold seedlings are loving this Autumn weather..they have doubled in size within the past few days..👌😍💛
Ok I’m off to get these coils done..chat later..👋
turn these fibres into…..🧙♀️💥⚡⚘
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!
what do you think of my mini skeins of assorted colour fibres? the fibres in these are from.. @cjfibres and @heavelywools … these are test skeins just to see if I liked the colours together.. I still have plenty of the original braids left and might spin them with something else or on their own..
I’m currently spinning a braid of assorted colours and hopefully turn it into some groovy art yarn coils.. fingers crossed they turn out ok…pics soon
My sunflowers are all out in bloom now.. I’m planning to plant a whole fenced row of them later by the middle of spring (that will be October/November) so then hopefully by Summer at Christmas time they’ll be in bloom again..
