Getting My Fiber Ducks In A Row


This has been a week filled with all the little steps of preparation that go into working with fiber, a week of getting my fiber ducks in a row. I'm doing some mini batts, like those above which I made for my spinning friends. I hope they like the colors, my eye likes to see a lot of color, as you can tell.


Next, I dyed up some Wenslydale locks in my Vintage Velvet Flowers Palette, I want to hog them all for myself!!!


Ahhh, heavenly clouds of fluffy clean white alpaca, I could just dive in!


I added the finishing touches to my PixieDust fingerless gloves by crocheting a picot edge in the pink angora I dyed up just for this project, they make my hands happy!

So, that's a peek at my studio doings for the week, a lot of little stepping stones go into completing a project and I have enjoyed every bit of the process.

Have a great weekend! Blessings Friends!

  6. I want those Wenslydale locks. They look heavenly! Your mini-batts are beautiful too. What am I saying, I am always loving what you create. The finishing touches on your mitts really put the pow in them. They turned out great.

    Loving all of the productive fiber arts so far this year.
