Yesterday was my little sister's birthday...Happy Birthday Wani! Hope you like your dishcloth.
It's great to be back visiting with you all again, Fiber Arts Friday seems to roll around pretty regularly doesn't it? Don't miss out on all the great fibery things going on over on Andrea's blog. I've been busy knitting, spinning, plying and making skeins of yarn. Making a skein of your own handspun yarn is an amazing thing. I was surprised at how exciting it was since I've been looking at the fiber, singles on spools and plied singles on bigger spools for a few weeks now. Who knew that when I finally got around to winding them on a niddy noddy and twisting them into skeins that I would feel such satisfaction?
the straw almost turned into gold...
Via Verde Farm and it is very nice to work with. The singles are quite fine as I'm attempting to make a light weight yarn with which I can knit a lace shawlette or perhaps one of these.
The Jellybeans yarn will become a Moebius like this one that I found on Ravelry. Don't you think it will be too much fun?
Thanks for stopping by and please have a safe and happy weekend full of goodness.
