I am back! and I am Blue lol! I am making progress with my camera, and I have actually found out that it takes around 10 mins video, I am not sure if I can change that... or will have to buy a new one.. anyways, please bare with me :)
S3 Fibery Goodness course, more details here. For my first yarn, I am spindle spinning in the grease some Shetland, and I don't mind at all.. Actually I am finding it more easy to spin a steady single (whooo...me?). If you want to read more about Shetlands, you can go over here.
I passed my first examination, and I can now continue with my second dyeing class with Natalie Redding from Namaste Farms!!! I had to choose colors I hated to make something beautiful in an oven dyeing... I have to say, that "hate" and "color" in a sentence is really not something I am comfortable with. I LOVE ALL COLORS. So I just used the ones, I am not a big fan of and some that I had never used before... so I didn't know how they would behave. The reuslt turned out verry pretty I am very happy with it. The only thing I would change is that in some areas I would not use so much dye so it would not turn out so dark.. But I am definetly pleased <3
I dyed some Border Leicester, I would have dyed more, but I am not sure I will have enough fiber until the end of the course... and for the moment I have troubles to order... (patience)
My test knit for Meiju Knits is over! I am so happy I managed to finish it before the deadline!!! Woohoo! "Someday Sweater" is a very beautiful, cozy, elegant pattern. Easy instructions, a bit tricky in the beginning but Meiju is very kind and will help you out if you are in trouble.. So if you are a beginner trying to spice things up a bit it is the perfect project! And if you are a more advanced knitter..tell me, just tell me: ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL? (toooo hot to wear...but beautiful) I knitted it with my "Vineyard" Limited colorway, that has sold out... maybe I will make another batch in the future.. we will see :)
