Whew!!!! I need to take a deep breath after the last few weeks and gear up for Christmas.
Spindle-making is going great!! I'm having soooo much fun. I just added some seashell whorl spindles to my stone spindles and the reception has been terrific. I had to make a paua shell one for myself...it's one of my favorite shells. I have a watch and sarong pins out of it.
Ok, Elemmaciltur, this is for YOU....I finally got a light box setup so that my pictures don't look so humdrum next to yours. What do you think????
I'm so excited. Gosh Yarn It! (https://www.goshyarnit.com/) is going to carry some of my spindles on their site!! Whoopee!!
I went to Kid N Ewe earlier this month. Met a lot of nice people and picked up some great mohair, bamboo (from the Fiberlady) and books. I got a lot more superwash wool in the mail so it's time to start creating some more batts to spin.
I've been out of town a lot this month, so at least I've gotten to work on some projects. I've spun part of my batts of a turquoise alpaca/silk/firestar blend that I'm going to use for the Peacock Feathers shawl one day. I also started knitting on the Wisp shawl from Knitty.com this summer with a brushed suri yarn that looks just like mohair, but feels like alpaca. I hope to start spinning some of my Extravagance batts for another shawl, but I don't know when I'll get to that!!!
Thanks for reading!!
