FAF 9/23/11

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!  Thank you for visiting and don't forget to check out the other crafty peeps over at Andrea's blog today.

Last Saturday was World Wide Spin in Public Day.  Did you spin in public?  It was a beautiful day and I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with friends out on Rosa Parks Circle.  My friend Rita from Yarn Hollow brought the most beautiful basket of goodies...
I was spindling this from pretty fiber that Emily gifted to me...she has very pretty things in her Etsy shop.
I knit another headband...
and finally finished the most difficult sock ever...
toe-up, after-thought heel, ugh.  I really like learning a new technique but several new techniques in the same sock? not so much.  It is, however, finished and its mate started.  Mate will have a black toe and heel.  Might make it more interesting when I'm spinning and showing off my socks, LOL

My friend Paula gave me a pretty Jacob batt that she carded.
Don't you love the color?

Tonight I'll meet Val for an ArtPrize tour downtown.  I'm sure I'll have lots of pics when I get back.  Have a super awesome weekend everybody!

PS:  Vivian,  send me a PM on FB with your address and I'll send you something pretty.

ooooh, Art Prize! Take photos. I hope to make it up there next weekend if all goes well.

I wish I could have made WWSIP with all of you...but I really am glad that the hay is done.

Have fun spinning that Jacob.

Hmmm, that sock sounds challenging - looks great though :)

Ooo lots of goodies! I do like the color of the bat. What I like more is your main photo on your blog. I LOVE the colors and the luster in that yarn.

Have to admit, love, love, love the sock colors. And that basket of yarny goodness is most awesome.

I seem to always miss World Wide Spin in Public Day. :-/

I like your socks and of course that Jacob fleece. :-)

Spinster Beth said...

Gimme that Jacob!

That is one vivid sock :-)

That's awesome! I really want to learn to knit socks and I'd like to try toe up so I can just keep knitting until I use all of the yarn. I like tall socks. LOL.

I'm excited to see the ArtPrize photos!

Just sent you message on Facebook :-)

I tried toe up socks once, didn't like it, and never tried after-thought heels. You are very brave to try different new techniques in the same project. The sock looks great!

Ohhhh, I love doing toe up socks. I always make my toes and heels in a different color. My thought is...if I have to take one of them out, I will know right where to pick up the correct stitches.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!!

Are you volunteering this year at Art Prize? I missed Spin in public day! I bet it was really fun. Say hi to Little Dog!

Denise said...

I didn't know it was WWSIP day. Apparently I live under a cactus.

Lovely spinning and sock.
