shopping fun

shopping is fun :D
other ladies go and buy shoes, i go and buy spindles
actually i was just wanting a jenkins …. so i went to ravelry and had a look if someone sells one
nope - but i found this little pretty one …

and then i though … well the one i got, from is fantastic, some more of them is a good thing too

there comes more - much much more ….

some crafting of last week



because spinning all black is really boring, i took again a break in between and i desided i need to do some learning of the long draw
nothing special, a 34 mic fiber called irish, in the shop
afterwards i was ready to fill the first bobbin (50 grams) and started the next one

i also knitted a bit on my shawl, and i got my turkish out, and spun a bit of some old rollags, i made them last year to test my blending board
and as it is really jsut a tiny amount, an idea is taking shape in my head already :D

AND i am sorting through the last patch of baby quality alpaka - "just" 400 grams *facepalm*
and because this is soooooooooooooooooooooo boring, i also got me some of the angora out, thats just 200 gram
pick pick pick all the shorts, nepps and felted parts out :D

20th of may


what a long break - sorry

my camera works again, it was just the cable ! i am really glad about this
my new job goes good so far, just officework till now

beside of fotographing my furs for selling them, i didnt do much lately
just spun a bit more of my black merino silk mix AND ! more further down


then i test spun some lovely grey merino, i tried to go thicker, which really is not easy for me, so i made a 3 ply


the 2nd top was a tad easier, and got thick even as a 2 ply, its a lovely high twist yarn
sadly the high twist takes away all the softness :(
but i tried a bought pattern, a hexagon, with the 3ply, and this is lovely ! i need to learn to spin softer, and thicker,
and then i make myself an afghan to cuddle with :D
