Blog? What blog?

For those of you who have been pestering me for weeks to write a new post, here it is. Short and sweet.

I've been caught up in work and school lately, so I haven't been knitting much. And, really, I've got little of interest to say that doesn't relate to wool. Somehow, I have managed to find some time to dye and spin -- as the photos below will show, my photography skills leave much to be desired, but my spinning skills are slowly improving! 

This is ~143 yards of heavy worsted / bulky Shetland from Louet:

Merino/silk, 450+ yds, heavy laceweight singles, hand-dyed:

Merino/nylon, ~350 yds, n-plied, fingering weight, hand-dyed:

Superwash merino from Pigeonroof studios, 330 yds, n-plied, light sportweight:
 (This is probably my favorite thing I've spun. I love this colorway!)

I've been trying to expand my horizons by ignoring the siren call of merino and buying other types of wool. In my stash, waiting to be spun: BFL, Romney, Shetland, Icelandic (!), and alpaca (!!). Oh, the possibilities...


  1. The super wash is gorgeous, and your photography for all the yarn is great.
