I think I need to get knitting again

I think I need a pair of these for myself - I want lime green thrums though with some of Maggies amazing mother fiber yarn -hmmm wonder if I have any LOL
I've made 5-6 pairs of these this winter and am really getting the rythym of thrums.

Vest yarn?? Maybe

Love BFL fibre for spinning -its soft and squishy and has such a luster to it.  This is 500 yards 2ply natural BFL raw fleece -washed, carded spun and then dyed with Jacquard dyes.  I used red/yellow/blue and let the colours soak in as they wanted to.
Vest yarn?? Maybe -we'll see :)

The plying marathon is over

Had to do it no more empty bobbins and balls of singles everywhere.  Still trying to figure out the perfect yarn for a vest project - I want to make a sideways knit vest like this one :)

Here's the finished yarn all waiting to be skeined up ready to go -most are 8 ounce balls :)  Lots of new yarn for the upcoming spring shows!

Last minute kids project

House full of bored little girls = fibre crafting!!!

Saw this idea on another site and we are going to try it with them -very simple weaving and a great way to use up little bits of roving :)
