2ply vs Coils

so which one do you like best?.. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ…I was thinking of knitting a beanie band with the two ply and then the main hat part with the coils๐Ÿค”… 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 both๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰

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! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

“sunshine daisies, butter mellow”…

turn these fibres into…..๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅโšกโš˜

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!.. ๐Ÿ˜Š More pics soon!

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..
