I hope everyone had a fabulous St Patrick's Day, and you have had the time to recover from the festivities, tricky to do coming so closely on the heals of day light savings time! I'm sharing pictures of batts I carded this week, tone on tone greens with little kicks of color here and there. The one above is listed in my shop.
These I carded up for myself, I needed a huge dose of color and I put together these scrumptious greens I'd been dying up in multiple fibers.
I needed a color fix, because for a few days I was working on this brown and it took a long time to spin, at least it seemed like a long time. To tell the truth, there were times when I'm sure I was sleep spinning! This is chiengora, aka dog fiber, and it spun up very nicely. The fiber is from Whoopi, a Newfoundland/Wolf/Husky mix, it was a custom request. It turned out very soft, and there's a lot of it, so Whoopi's mom will be able to make a little something as a remembrance. It's nearly dry, then I can ship it out.
Here's another little incentive I carded up while I was taking a break from spinning miles of brown dog fiber. This set of Blossom batts uses alpaca, angora, finn, bamboo, silk, and coopworth. Look for some of these to be added to the shop as well.
I felted these Jumbo beads to go with the Blossom batts, that's a quarter resting on top of one of the beads, I'm really excited to get going on this project, just a few loose ends to tie up and I can dig into a colorful spin!!! (I'm going to list some of these too...if I can part with them!)
Lots of fibery goodness this week, I'm off to check out the wonderful posts at Fiber Friday and Creative Friday, I always find plenty of inspiration, take a peek see what you think.
Have a wonderful spring weekend! Blessings Friends!
