My Hanspun Pal Vivien did it again. I can't believe she considers herself an intermediate spinner. Her spinning is so even and she definitely listens to the fiber and works with its properties. The varicolored blue was spun by Vivien and then dyed. Unfortunately my pictures are not coming out as beautifully as the real thing. The darker blue is a blue merino with a silk ply. It is a beautiful boucle type yarn. All three skeins Vivien sent to me coordinate really well so I think i might do a scarf with them. I'm still enjoying looking at them too much to actually knit them! Check out her blog! http://spinayarn99.blogspot.com/
Vivien also sent this amazing silk top. I am going to spindle and savor this! Pictures again don't do justice! Vivien has been the best Handspun pal!
This is was a gift of roving from my dear friend Jessica. She went to Nova Scotia and brought back some Fleece Artist BFL. The color of the roving is called Celtic Colors and was a specially dyed color for the shop she purchased it at. I got 328 yds out of my 50gms so it is already on the needles and destined to be one of Dorothy Seimens scarves called Rippling waters scarf.
My felted project bag is done. I wanted a huge tote so I used up stash and swap yarn and created this. Sheila Ernst's button sure tops it off doesn't it?
I think it is interesting to note. I thought that all this two color knitting dominant hand stuff was a bunch of hooey. If you look closely at the bag you can see where I switched color in the dominant hand for a while and then switched back. It is more pronounced in person. I don't mind it but it was a good lesson!
