For the first Saturday Spindling of 2013, I thought I’d share some fiber gifties. I was so very spoiled at Christmas. I actually have a fiber stash now. Who would have thought 😉
First, three gorgeous braids from Greenwood Fiberworks.
I discovered this shop a few months ago and love the colors and prep. BFL/silk is new to me and I’m looking forward to giving it a try. The dark BFL is already being used to break in the turkish spindle I got for my birthday. There’s a bit of a learning curve because the spindle is loose and slips some. I think it’s the way I’ve wrapped the leader. Anyway . . .
I’ve enjoyed reading and learning about different wools decided to join The Knit Girllls’ Expand Your Horizon (EYH) spinalongs. Basically, folks spin a new fiber/breed every other month and share techniques and results. So to help me with this goal,
Santa brought me a fiber sampler from Wool Gatherings — 1 oz each of 24 breeds. I first heard about this pack from Tina @ Peacefully Knitting and added it to my list. I’m married to the best “Santa” ever, don’t you think?
Well, this will definitely keep me busy for a while. So much fiber and so little time . . . have to go spin . . . now.
Have a good weekend!
