Roscalie Vest Finished

I finished the arm bands on the Roscalie vest last weekend and blocked the vest. I've just now had a chance to take some pictures...

Spinning: Week 17

Even though I traveled this week, I still managed to spin one bump. It is Southern Cross Fibre's "Crossroad Blues" on Corriedale.

I prepped it with fauxlags and spun it long-draw, for a fluffy two=ply worsted yarn. It is about 200 yards.

I prepped fiber for next week, too. It is five bumps of Southern Cross Fibre's "Cavern" on Falkland/Silk/Alpaca, April's club fiber. The blend is already one of my favorites!

The colors in "Cavern" are very similar to "Crossroad Blues," which is a club fiber also, from November 2013.

Happy Knitting,

Happy Easter

Mitchell gave his approval for the Easter basket.

The Easter bunny didn't hide the eggs very well this year. They made a heart shape.

Spinning: Week 16

I spun my first milk fiber this week, a merino/milk fiber blend from "Bee Mice Elf." The colorway is "Vino for Valentine."

It is about 385 yards from 8 ounces of fiber.

I also caked my Spelsau fiber and cast on my Hela cardigan. Here are the cakes:

Happy Knitting!

Spinning: Week 14

I finished up the brighter colors of my Spelsau gradient, hot pink to light orange. It is about 280 yards.

It will be the contrast yoke yarn go with the purples.
