I finished my Tunisian crochet hat! Started it Wednesday night and finished it Thursday night. My hands were a little sore. This was an experiment to see if I could, there was no real pattern, just a YouTube video on how to cast on in the round. So I’m pretty pleased how it turned out. I love how the decreases made a cool pattern at the top of the hat. But I think I will decrease a little differently next time. I will mark this experiment success.
I made my daughter and I matching headbands. With a Tunisian simple stitch and yarn I dyed and spun myself. She isn’t too fond of things on her head but boy is it cute!!
Newest hand spun I’ve done. This is a big blend. It has Romney and locks and all sorts of other pretty fibers. I never know actual percentages when I make art yarn.
Look what I crocheted myself, it’s simple Tunisian stitch. I love it. It was super easy. I found the tutorial on YouTube from crochet geek. I made this with yarn I spun myself.
Mixed up a bunch of fiber the other day. There is angora, and coopworth locks, Romney, alpaca and some other random stuff including firestar!
Handspun singles ready to ply, the purple is 100% Romney, the mixed color is from an art batt I posted before. Locks, Angelina, and Romney.
Spinning with a ten month old on my lap. It was an experience, but hey I got to spin!
Coopworth locks I bought, always have to have a rainbow to spin! I’ve been adding these at random to what ever I’m running through the drum carder.
At Maryland Sheep & Wool festival. First stop, Merino sheep! My very favorite. I love that natural cool, but when I see white, I think of a rainbow of wool.
More dying! I had so much fun. The skeins on the right look very Van Gogh starry night to me. Love it.
