Arts and Dannas

June 9, 2008

I finished up a bunch of spinning projects a few weeks ago after I got my hand carders- I felt that mojo come back in a storm! But now i'm sort of spun out, I haven't really touched the spindle or the cards for a week or so- but I've been fondling my fiber stash, of course!
I just wanted to show you what I did with those carders. First up is Tutti Frutti- only a few yards and was made with chunks of wool that were dyed many different colors. This was the 'test' of the carders, to get the feel for them and to see what spinning from rolags would be like. Navajo plied, to boot! It was my first time plying that way and I actually had a good time doing it and it was pretty easy to keep going.

Next up we have the big ticket yarn- This one is wool and soy, which it was my first time spinning soy too! I'd say 50 or so yards, made from rolags from my carders and then navajo plied.

I did finish up a poor yarn that had been waiting to be finished forEVER, but you'll just have to check out my flickr for that :)
