Spinning yards and yards of yarn

I’ve been sailing away on Queen Anne these last two weeks and getting beautiful results. I’ve been making up for all the last time since I couldn’t spin for most of the spring semester.

I am so proud of this one. It’s fairly consistant. I purchased a batt from Bohemia Fibers on Etsy sometimes ago, it’s called Planet Grape. Planet Grape is a mix of merino wool and fire star (my first time spinning both fibers). I plied it with a single of purple merino wool. I think it turned out great together. Love it ๐Ÿ™‚

Planet Grape spun to perfection

I have more to show but a little busy right now. I’ll try to post later today or tomorrow.

P.S. – I joined the Tour De Fleece :). I’m on the rookie ย team and the art yarn team (Thanks Sharon for turning me on to it).

Hunny Bunny (I’m back YAY!)

This semester is almost over. Well, technically it is over but I have one last paper to write that I was given an extension on and it is one that I dread to write. In the mean while, I’ll catch ya up on things that I got done during the semester.

This little girlie bunny lovingly named, Hunny Bunny had been 2 years in the making. It started as the Lion Brand pattern ‘Best Bunny’. But I didn’t like that it was so small so I altered it as I went along and eventually it became boring and I tossed it aside while I did some other things. Poor girl was in a bin for nearly two years without her arms, tail and legs attached. One day while searching for some yarn, my now one and a half year old daughter saw it and gave it the biggest hug so I had to finish her.

So here is Reli’s pretty Hunny Bunny!

I have much planned for the summer! Lots of crafty goodness coming up. And hopefully, maybe I’ll actually get around to opening that Etsy shop too ๐Ÿ™‚
