FAF March 11
While I'm gone you can drool over my latest accomplishment...
Navajo plying with that. This is about 8 oz of 100% Merino. When pulled tight it's about a fingering weight but left to lie loosely it looks more like a sport weight. We'll see how it knits up pretty soon. I have a pattern in mind and can't wait to get started on it. Thanks to Spin Off magazine for the pattern.
I also got my $9 spinning wheel going this week. I love how she clatters when she's spinning and she makes a very fine yarn of the baby camel I'm spinning on her.
I got a message today that my adoption packet for the Navajo Churro sheep is on it's way. I'll post some pics on Monday when I get it. I'm told the fiber will be good for something like a bag or something woven...do not get me started weaving...please!
Have a great week and be sure to visit my crafty friends on the Fiber Arts Friday blog over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. See ya next week!
