Fiber Friday! A week focused on new techniques.

What a great creative spinning week! It’s funny how the time goes by and it feels like you haven’t done much until you stop and take a look.
First: I sold my first yarn!!!
Wheeeee! This was uber exciting!

1. 400 yards of singles. 70% wool, 30% silk.

All in all, a great week. How about you?

Spin on!

  1. congratulations on selling your first hand spun! Yay!!!
    I still haven’t gotten onto the band wagon of art yarns but I’m still just a beginner at spinning and knitting. At the moment I have a love affair going on with lace weight yarns, spinning and knitting with.
    Have a wonderfully creative weekend…

    • Thanks Beth! You know, focusing on the “classics” with your yarn will give you a huge boost when you decide to try art yarns. It will make a lot more sense and you’ll be able to spin art yarn with intention..which is kinda awesome!

  2. Great news!

    I spun beads into several skeins of yarns as my ‘art project’ – just to see if I could do it. It was intense. Getting things just right…wow…what a feeling!

    Congradulations!!!
