under the sea..

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!

2ply vs Coils

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👍😉

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! 👍😊

mini handspun skeins

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..
