What’s on the wheel? Another spring mix with purples, white, gray, light green & accents of burgundy red.
What’s on the wheel today? A pretty pastel combo of hand-dyed wool along with accents of undyed, curly wool locks. …I’m thinking - SPRING! :)
Ever wanted to try spinning? A top whorl drop spindle is a great way to start! …and just remember, practice - practice - practice! ;) This fun, “doilies” inspired spindle, is handmade by KristenLeClair.
Modeling my latest hand-knit hat - a variation on the “Wurm” pattern from Ravelry. This was a fun, quick & easy project & I would definitely make another, maybe just a little longer….I tend to get impatient at the end & finish em too soon. Hehe. Not bad though ;)
Hand-knit hat I whipped up in one afternoon. A variation on the “Wurm” pattern on Ravelry.
Handspun art yarn that I spun while giving a demo at last Friday’s “Portlandia” art show opening at Splendorporium. This yarn actually contains 6+ different types of fiber, including some of my own hand-dyed colors as well as sparkly add-ins & some tulle accents!
This looks like a fun hat pattern (free from katushika on Ravelry) - great for all levels of knitters! Knitting in the round is simple once you try it & if you can knit & purl, that’s all there is to this hat! Think I might whip one of these out this afternoon!! :)
My set-up at the “Portlandia” art show opening last Friday at Splendorporium. Had a great time & love to share my creative process for hand-spinning yarn! :) Thanks again to Splendorporium for having me!!
Goodies from the Rose City Yarn Crawl! Stopped at 6 of the 19 shops today & saving the rest for later this weekend! …Behaved myself pretty well & stuck to buying a few magazines & patterns, hopefully to inspire me to use up my already well-stocked stash of yarn!! ;)
