This is what it looks like after a few hours spinning...
Have any of you been down the same path? If so, did you have a difficult time purchasing commercial yarn after you'd done it? Was the item you produced something that you really loved?
I am very curious. When I started knitting 5 years ago I really didn't understand why anyone would knit a pair of socks. Seems like so much work when you can go to the local big box store and buy socks for $3 a pair. Now, after having knit about 30 pair of socks, I can't imagine ever buying another pair of socks in a big box store. Isn't it funny how things change?
4 oz Alpaca/MerinoI'd like to thank all the wonderful peeps that participate in Fiber Arts Friday over on Andrea's blog. They've given me so much inspiration and left so many nice comments over the past few months. Be sure to check out their blogs, you'll see some great stuff.
Have a wonderful weekend hopefully doing something fibery. Be sure and take pictures!
