Spinning

I’ve decided I want an espinner and because I always go expensive; I want a Hansen espinner, with a WooLee Winder….in Cherry! So it matches Sherry The Cherry!

I want an eSpinner for several reasons; I’d like to go to Spinning Guild, but obviously can’t lug my wheel down to the […]

Oops, I got a bit behind!!

I forgot to post Week 5:

Week 5

Not loads going on, mostly bills. Unfortunately, I didn’t make the spin and natter at Jumble Jelly on Saturday; I just couldn’t afford all the petrol (it’s about 120 miles round trip!)

We popped over to the Island on Wednesday […]

Organising

Monster Stash!

Today, I decided to sort out the stash cupboard!

Before I moved, I had a whole room to house my stash, but moving meant downsizing and the room downsized to a cupboard!

Miraculously, it all fit, but I couldn’t really get at anything so today I […]

Some finished stuff

Aquarius

I’ve been a bit lax in blogging about knitting lately.

I can’t remember what I’ve told you about so I’ll give you the whole shebang on this next project.

Aquarius with first Shetland braid

I spun a 3 ply heavy laceweight yarn from 100g of a […]

A bit of what I’ve been doing lately

Right, so where are we…..

I guess the first thing is; the eggs didn’t survive – I don’t know whether they were duds to start with, or whether my handling killed them. But they all shrivelled up within a week of me moving them.

I recently got to be […]

Second Tour de Fleece Yarn

I have been spinning….a LOT!

Aquarius

I spun a bobbin of merino/silk in the colourway Aquarius. I think merino/silk is one of my most favourite blends to spin – it’s just so effortless.

As I only had 100g of it, I decided I would ply it with something else.

So I spun […]

Bobbins

Schacht Bobbins

When I bought Sherry The Cherry, I was lucky enough to have seven bobbins for her.

After some discussion on twitter, I decided to try a super high speed whorl and High Speed bobbin at Woolfest.

Janet from The Threshing Barn obliged me by bringing along […]

First Tour de Fleece yarn

It’s Tour de Fleece time again and I’ve been spinning pretty much non stop.

I decided that I would finish projects already started and I finished the first one today.

Wheels in motion!

This is a little collage. It shows the yarn being spun on my Ashford Joy, […]

Tour de Fleece 2012

I’m participating in the Tour de Fleece again this year. I decided this year would be the year I finish some of my WIPs.

I had a lot of items started on spindles, but I decided a while ago that I just prefer using a wheel and the spindles didn’t get […]

Struggling

I must admit, I’m starting to struggle with this sock challenge.

Oh, don’t get me wrong! I am still loving socks and want to knit the 300+ in my queue, but I miss spinning…..and knitting lace shawls…….and big chunky sweaters!

I don’t have time to do ANY of these; […]
