Second Bobbin!

This red camel fiber is such a smooth and soft spin!  The spinning went faster than I imagined it would, and now I can't wait to ply this weekend!  This was one of my hand dyed fiber bumbs at Dye Day at the Barn this year!

Wee socks!

These socks turned out to be so cute!  Yes, the two heels are a little different as my Wrap & Turn technique improved, yet great to practice on wee socks!  Only a little of this fun yarn left over.... nice work with scrap stash of Jitteryknitter!

Wee sock heels!

Trying to figure out Wrap & Turn technique on these wee socks. The second sock was much easier as I used rubber bands to mark where the wrap had occurred. Perhaps next pair will be perfect?!!

Finally came back to plying this lovely yarn, and it is beautiful! Soft and lofty, and I think it will be great to knit!

15th Teen Hat!

This hat using Imperial Stock Ranch yarn turned out beautiful!  Very bouncy yarn, yet not smooth to knit with.  Is this considered squishy yarn?  Thanks to Jitteryknitter for these stash leftovers!

Baby Socks!

My first time trying to knit little baby socks - using my Addi Sock Rockets and love them for this teeny tiny knitting!  Using Jitteryknitter's left over Seahawks sock yarn. Very fun to try a new project!

Soft and lofty 2-ply ~

What a wonderful surprise to find that this 2-ply is soft and lofty and smooshy!  I think this will be great for knitting!  Already have a full bobbin of 2-ply and still some left to ply, I wonder how many yards there will be!

Knitting with the 99%

Attended the Bernie Sanders rally in Seattle with family and our neighbors. He has great ideas on how to solve real problems. Very refreshing to hear someone talking about solutions to real issues. #bernie2016

Dye Day at the Barn #3

Silkie Socks that Rock in peaches and orange - LOVE how this one turned out!  Great fun!

Dye Day at the Barn #2

Dye Day Results!  The red fiber I dyed for Jitteryknitter, Red Camel (she wanted a Red Camel, so there it is....) and the teal/violet/yellow is "Midnight at the Oasis" (...sing your camel to bed...) and I'm not sure how it will spin into yarn... hopefully lovely!  (my kids like Red Camel the best!)

Dye Day at the Barn!

Dye Day Results! Another amazing day at Blue Moon Fiber Arts with Tina and Team!  This is their Cool Sock that I tried to dye in "brights" like the Socks That Rock that I LOVE!!  However... I could not get the neon colors that Tina/Team gets, so I will continue to buy them from Tina!!! :)
