New Yarns

I have been trying really hard to actually get some yarns finished and here is what I have so far. I am a bit proud of myself because I have done most of these this past week and I feel like I have actually accomplished something! I hope you will enjoy looking at my latest creations!!

This is a single of black Romney wool that I working on. It is spinning really nice. It is really soft and has a bit of a silver highlight to it!I am going to spin another bobbin of it and then ply the 2 together with some iridescent blue glass beads.

This is some wonderful mohair roving from Sugar that I got from Grace at www.larkspurfunnyfarm.etsy.com ! It is so soft and absolutely a dream to spin! I am not quite sure what I am going to do with it yet! I do know that I am not sure I will sell it!!! Oh Grace, just wait until I win the lottery!!

I really like the way this one came out. I started with beautiful white Romney and dyed it and then I plied this with 2 strands of cotton sewing thread! Next time I want to spin it a bit thicker to ply with the sewing thread so it will have a bit more curl to it, but I think it came out nice and I love the colors in it!


This one is Romney wool that I blended with nylon roving that I dyed. I wasn't sure how the yarn would turn out because when I started to blend them together I was worried about the colors looking muddy, but I think that they came out pretty clear!

I am so glad you like my "Sugar" he was feeling his oats today while he helped me do some chores - tons of kisses and ate a couple of my flowers when I was not looking - silly old goat but I forgive him just about anything. Enjoy the spinning.

Hello Monica,

I can't wait to see the one with the beads added to it. :0) They are all lovely though...I've been so distracted with this blasted remodeling that I can't focus on anything else!

But the day is coming (fast) that it'll all be done and I'll be creating in my studio like I've been here forever. :0)

Have a lovely day and I'll be talking to you,
Steph

How cool is that? I have always wished I could spin. Maybe one day I will try my hand at that.
