Last night after finishing my amigurumi axalottl I felt I needed to make Tempe something. So I sat down and whipped up this little hippo in a little over an hour. It was super easy. I think I’m going to try to make all of the ami from this book.
Ami axolotl. Pretty goofy looking right? Just finished him up for a friend.
I bought two balls of alpaca blend roving. The camel color is suri blend, the dark brown is alpaca and merino blend. This fiber is so soft! I’m excited to spin it up.
Mixed up a bunch of fiber the other day. There is angora, and coopworth locks, Romney, alpaca and some other random stuff including firestar!
More dying! I had so much fun. The skeins on the right look very Van Gogh starry night to me. Love it.
Did some dying with a friend today. It has been awhile since I really got a chance to play with dyes and wool. I’ve still been spinning and doing other fiber arts. I’ve just been so busy with my lovely daughter I haven’t hd time to blog it! But I have lots of photos to be posted in the next few days!
This WIP single is Angora, Romney, Firestar, Alpaca, Mohair. You name it I kind of just tossed it in. I was spinning angora from Orreck but I wanted to liven it up a bit. So I tossed in some neon green romney I dyed, and then I saw the bright purple firestar… Pale pink alpaca, and pretty green and purple mohair locks. I really just played around. This is the first REAL spinning Ive done since having Tempe, she really doesnt let me spin often. But my wonderful hubby took her for a little while and I got to fall in love with my lendrum again.
A second art batt I recently whipped up. This one has, mohair locks, merino, alpaca, romney and, camel! Very very soft indeed. Cant wait to see how it spins up. It reminds me of camo, or just the forest in the middle of summer.

a painting I finished recently. I think she looks like a mermaid.
