As usual my blogging has been suffering because of all the other stuff I’ve been doing.

I just snapped a few pictures before my camera battery died and it turns out all but one of the pics I took were out of focus. 


(I used a flash with this one.  I don’t know why I listen to Eric when he tells me not to use flash.  It seems to work better with it)

Do you wonder what it is? 

It is my handspun yarn!.  A bulky weight 2 ply Targhee wool yarn in a lovely off-white which was spun on my Fricke e-spinner.  I got 2 pounds of this fiber free with my e-spinner and this was only the first eight ounces of it.  I was truly surprised at how much it fluffed up after washing to set the twist.  It’s about 300 yards.  I have this handpainted targhee wool fiber from SpinningBunny.com in Tamarak and Spruce colorway which I’m going to spin up fairly soon to make a top down yoke sweater.  It will make a great fall sweater.


When I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival last week, I picked up some fiber .  Most of that you’ll see in the podcast.  However, I got this beautiful soysilk from Serendipity Farm and Studio which I think I’m going to try and spin up next.  I want to experiment with trying different fibers before trying to push myself into creating a knitted project with my yarns.


Isn’t this color just beautiful!  8 ounces should make a lovely shawl or wrap.
