I seem to be lagging a day behind on all my scheduled posts this week, and will try to get back on track next week. There will be more photos posted over the weekend, but for now here’s a look at some of the yarns I’ve completed so far with my new wheel:
From left to right: natural grey merino, natural cream Corriedale cross, Corriedale cross dyed with madder root, grey Shetland dyed with madder root, and natural grey Shetland. I’ve also spun a bit of camel, angora, and blue faced Leicester, and am hoping to get a couple more plant dye experiments underway over the weekend.
And now for something completely different:
I’ve been working so hard at practicing my worsted draw that I decided to have a little fun tonight. This is Lincoln lamb from Hedley Grange on Etsy, spun to let some of the curly locks hang free–my first attempt at a novelty yarn.
