New baby bump

Haha no I’m not pregnant (maybe in a couple years!) but the first name that came to my head when making my hand dyed fiber bumps was “baby bump” because they fit into a nice little braided coil. I use many names interchangeably to describe those little braids I make so we’ll see. This is…

On the bobbin

Here is what I’m currently spinning on my Sidekick: This fiber is from Yarn Hollow’s sampler tin spinner’s feast that I purchased a few weeks ago from Natural Stitches. What drew me to buying the tin was seeing it Navajo or Chain plied at Natural Stitches. It looked amazing and felt great on the skin…

My oh my ! My 2 ply…

My 8 ounces of Polwarth/Tussah Silk is finally all spun up! I started plying last night. I decided I wanted to preserve the potential yardage I could attain by 2 plying the yarn and that is exactly what I did. I’m very pleased that I took my time spinning this so that it could relax…
