February Fiber

It's the last day of February so I should probably share with you my fiber of the month from the Woolgathering.  The roving is Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) and Tussah Silk.  It is really soft and I can't wait to spin it up.

Yummy Yummy Yarn

I've been busy making yarn and wanted to share all of the fluffy goodness.  I got to work uninterrupted during my Saturday spinning group, not exercise spinning (though I should do that too), wool spinning.  I almost spun up two skeins.  I just didn't get to ply the second one.  At the beginning of the year I joined the Traveling Treadlers fiber guild in my area.  It is really nice to get together with like mined people.  I would suggest you find a group in your area that does the same crafty thing you enjoy.  It is fun to meet new people, and you can learn a few tricks of the trade.  It was very relaxing to spin and chat with others who enjoy some yummy yummy fiber.  Too look at, work with not the kind you eat.  Enjoy!

Yummy Yummy Yarn!

Yarn Cake

I just wanted to share what I have been up to lately.  Spinning of course!  I am running out of fiber.  I need more, I think I am addicted.  Better wool than chocolate, right?  Well I that's not exactly true I love chocolate too.  I guess with all the talk of sweets I will share my yarn cake today.  The fiber is from Woolgatherings. I took the skein that I had wrapped on my niddy noddy and put it on my ball winder which winds it into what is called a cake.  Yummy!
