I’ve been certified to have attended Spinning I classes. Woohoo!
I have been dyeing yarns this week. Mostly hemp, but I’m also using some cottons and linen when I make too much of a colour. We got some sun in the beginning of the week. Today its clouds with rain coming, but also plus temperatures. I opened up the widows of the mud room, and turned off the heater. Its not so bad to work in already this morning. I’ll get at least 2 more colours dyed in today.
On the decoration front I have scanned a few ideas in. I really like this one for the front. But I need a different flower there. Will take some thought. I’m not sure how skinny the vines will get to fit it into the space.
A few geometic takes that I’m curious how they will look for me on the back. Will have to add some colours, too.
I tried this spirograph pattern, but I think its too busy.
I decorate wood when I get a chance. I grabbed pics of what was easy to see. The horizontal surfaces are covered right now! In progress:
After the spinning classes, we brought what we had worked on in the 6 weeks, and showed the guild members. And were presented with our certificates. It was a lot of fun. And I never knew there was a recipe for butter tart squares. Heavenly!
The banana/merino fibre mix:
Plied up with orange the green, and a glitter yarn.
I’ve spun up more yarn than I can quickly knit up now. I’m onto alpaca now; its awesome to spin. There is a competition deadline coming soon that I’m looking into being able to enter.
