spinning madness

my fibre drying after it came out of the dye.

current balls that i have spun i am very happy with these.

For weeks now i have been home spinning on and off and its taking so long. the alpaca im using is so difficult to spin with as it has such short lengths.

over time though i have been startimg to get somewhere and im very happy with the results.

dye day

my end collection of ten yarns all different colours and methods of kettle dyeing and hand painting.

hand painting the yarn in red with green flecks.

pink and purple yarn just coming out of the microwave.

kettle dyeing on the hob which i really liked and really liked the effect.

For the first time i have dyed some wool and it did go well even though its a messy job i loved it and am very happy with the results.

magic scarf

many people give me wool if they try to knit or find they have to much and yesterday i was given five balls of discontinued rowan bigga print so i had to find a pattern that would work with five balls.
i decided to make a magic scarf that you knit a scarf to about one third of the length you need it and then when you cast off drop every other stitch.
as i only had a small ammont of wool i thought this would be the best pattern to make and im very happy with how its turned out.
