Chitchat and the occasional in-depth analysis about fiber, knitting, spinning, crochet, cooking, feminism, self-image, and a modicum of personal blathering.

Monday Morning post

So, with this shiny new crafting space, I've been spinning a bit every day.

This one was a bit of a disappointment. There were some unexpected colors hidden inside the batt, and they combined in some unexpected ways.

I have had similar things happen in the past and oddly, most of the time I end up liking the object that the yarn is made of in the end just fine. So I will remain optimistic. 517 yards of a lace weight two ply.

This one is fiber made from Feistywoman Designs sock batts. Her fiber is a joy to spin, always. It ended up a little short on yardage but it's a sport weight yarn so it should work out fine for thicker socks. 325 yards of sport weight three ply.


Here's the room, by the way.


It's easy to go in there with my laptop and a couple of DVDs and spin and enjoy the bright daylight and clean surroundings. I could use a more comfortable spinning chair but it is good in a way because it keeps me from sitting in one place too long.


I did get better photos of the rainbow shawl and they're on the flickr feed if you want to see more. I'm rather fond of this one.

In other news, Biscuit now has his own Facebook page. What is this world coming to?

I really do love the first yarn you've shown, it's very pretty. The colors work together really well. And I like your cat, he reminds me of a light version of my cat :)
