Maroon Merino ~


Another bobbin that has been dormant since 2015. This is maroon merino (it looks purple in this picture!) that I'll ply with the lemon merino, both purchased at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in 2012! #operationemptybobbins #OFFF2012

108 yards!

Experiment ~


I've had this alpaca/silk on the bobbin for many years - and it resembled piano wire since it has  no sheep fibers giving it airy loft.  So, the experiment is fold over drafting, bending the fiber as it goes into the twist, giving it some airy loft in the bend.... we'll see.... Operation Get My Bobbins Empty Again!

60 yards of mystery


 I decided, with help from Wise Carol, that #lifeIsTooShortToSpinCrap   This fiber is too matted and felted to be any fun, so I plyed what I'd already spun.... and donating the rest....

Michigan Mystery Fiber


I need to get this fiber off my bobbin, so started to spin again. Still no idea what this fiber is, and hope to get spun and plyed soon.... Now is the time to get all these "oldies" off my bobbins!!

Experimental Polka Dots ~


These are fiddly but I have some ideas to try to make them easier... I think they look fun!

Blanket Cast On (again)


Yes, I had to cast on this blanket twice, as I never get the correct count the first time....so Charlie helped me this time.....

So beautiful at our cottage at Dash Point, and my sweater is looking so great!

Amazing Targhee!


Received this Abstract Fiber inchocolate rainbow as a gift from Jitteryknitter and couldn't wait to see if this Targhee spins the same as the fiber I hand dyed at 2016 Dye Day.  So far, it is lovely and squishy!

This is the Shetland  from the Rodger Family Farm that Marion picked out at Oregon Flock and Fiber festival last year.  Very crimpy and squishy, and tons of veg matter... plus some grey hair for ol' Romulous!
