Sari Silk

Ok.....so while in Monteagle at the Weekend of Fiber retreat, I picked up some lovely sari silk fabric yarn.  Great colours that I'm looking forward to incorporating into projects....weaving, knitting....whatever is calling for them.

Twinleaf Complete


Ok....they're both finished.  I specifically purchased the yarn indicated for the pattern (which I rarely do), but it wasn't enough to complete all 9 rays.  I got 7 following the pattern for the teal.  For the purple I reduced the number of rows and the beginning and end down to 34 to get an 8th ray.

Ok....What a groovy little place....such nice people...so excited this is close by Mum.  Have been a couple of times to get veggies and even lunch.  Great addition to the neighborhood.

Spinning of Late

Ok....so I have been on a knitting kick which means a hiatus from spinning and weaving.  However, recently I took part in the Weekend of Fiber in Monteagle, TN which was yet again a chance to visit with friends and catch up on a little spinning.


I spun 18 oz of Far Out Farm's lovely Cotswold alpaca blend in blue...fun and lovely.

I also spun a gradient from Daily Fibers that will make it's way into a project soon.  Keep an eye out for another pattern using this lovely yarn.
