This is almost all the yarn I have in my stash. There are still 2 skeins drying after setting the twist, the 2 projects I have on needles, and 2 small skeins sitting on the computer desk I still need to put away. We wont even talk about all the roving and wool I have sitting in my stash. Is this normal? God Bless and stay warm!!
Ok so this post is way late but I have been doing some cleaning and organizing of my stash and just found these, so I thought I would post a pic now. I also have way more yarn spun up than I ever thought I did! Better late than never I guess. The colored skein is from a black French German cross it got 6th place not sure how many there was altogether. The dyed skein is pure German and got took 2nd. Both skeins got very good comments. I thought I done very well for my first skein contest. Hope all of you had a very good Christmas! God Bless
I got some white BFL locks from Out of the Blue If you have not visited that site yet make sure you do. Anyways back to the locks. I ran the tips over one of my hand carders to open them up a little and carded some white onto my carder. Dyes some of the locks sapphire blue and violet. The blue shows up better than the violet in this pic but the locks took dye VERY well. I then "hand painted" them onto my carder (sorry I should have got a pic of that) and ran it through the carder 3 times. I still have some more to play with then I will be spinning. If I remember I will post pics of the finished yarn before I knit it into whatever it becomes. I have really liked working with this BFL I may have to rethink my sheep thoughts. God Bless!
I am finally back on line at home and everything is working well. My computer was really old so when they redone the phone lines and I needed a new DSL modem I had to get some kinda card put on my computer well I went ahead and bought a new rebuilt computer instead so I am all up to date now. Works like a dream, fast, smooth, takes no time at all to surf and find things now its great! So now its time to see how it does with uploading pics for my blog. This is Rambouillet, Angora, and bronze Angelina that I blended on my drum carder. I had a hard time getting the angora to blend in, not sure if its just cause I am new at this or if its because the angora was from first clips so it was very fine, anyways I did not get as much angora in it as I wanted. This is pure angora that I had dyed. I was blending it on hand carders, the drum carder was much faster and easier. I have more of this to get carded and have wondered if I should not blend it with some white wool and add angelina to get a multi colored sparkly batt. God Bless hope your all staying warm!
My internet at home is not working so the only time I can check email or anything is at work. Hopefully it will be fixed by the beginning of next week and I will get back to blog updates. God Bless hope all of you are staying warm!
I took this pic this morning before I left for work it is the first snow here in Southeastern Indiana we got about an inch. It was all melted away before I got off work this afternoon. I picked up this Louet Drum Carder from my friend Joyce this weekend. So far I am really enjoying using it. I have carded a couple batts one I blended in some Firestar for shine and blended 2 colors of dyed angora in another. I got some Angelina in mail today for blending as well. Stay tuned for pis of crazy batts. God bless and stay warm!
Wondered who I get bringing animals home from? Its from my Dad without a doubt! Friday night he went to his coon hunters club for a hunt and he brought home another puppy! This time I am very excited, for once its not a coon hound, not even a hound at all! Her name is Annie and yes this one is defiantly mine LOL. Annie is a Border Collie! The cutest little thing and smart too, she already knows her name. I took her to my brothers today to pick turnips if she wondered to far I called her by name and she came running! This pic is after she got her belly full and ready is ready for a nap now. I have heard Border Collies are very smart little dogs I can wait to see what all we can do! God Bless I pray each of you have found salvation through Jesus Christ!
