over the weekend i worked on some of my angora fluff - not yet finished, but i got something to spin, incase i finish the little black/blue i got :D
Wellcome to my blog

I would like to introduce to you my creations and keep you updated with other happenings which are important to me.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.
shopping is fun :D
other ladies go and buy shoes, i go and buy spindles
actually i was just wanting a jenkins …. so i went to ravelry and had a look if someone sells one
nope - but i found this little pretty one …
and then i though … well the one i got, from https://www.etsy.com/shop/BuckeyeSpindles is fantastic, some more of them is a good thing too
there comes more - much much more ….
because spinning all black is really boring, i took again a break in between and i desided i need to do some learning of the long draw
nothing special, a 34 mic fiber called irish, in the shop
afterwards i was ready to fill the first bobbin (50 grams) and started the next one
i also knitted a bit on my shawl, and i got my turkish out, and spun a bit of some old rollags, i made them last year to test my blending board
and as it is really jsut a tiny amount, an idea is taking shape in my head already :D
AND i am sorting through the last patch of baby quality alpaka - "just" 400 grams *facepalm*
and because this is soooooooooooooooooooooo boring, i also got me some of the angora out, thats just 200 gram
pick pick pick all the shorts, nepps and felted parts out :D
what a long break - sorry
my camera works again, it was just the cable ! i am really glad about this
my new job goes good so far, just officework till now
beside of fotographing my furs for selling them, i didnt do much lately
just spun a bit more of my black merino silk mix AND ! more further down
then i test spun some lovely grey merino, i tried to go thicker, which really is not easy for me, so i made a 3 ply
the 2nd top was a tad easier, and got thick even as a 2 ply, its a lovely high twist yarn
sadly the high twist takes away all the softness :(
but i tried a bought pattern, a hexagon, with the 3ply, and this is lovely ! i need to learn to spin softer, and thicker,
and then i make myself an afghan to cuddle with :D
today i come with a sad news
my camera doesnt work
well the camera works, but i cant upload the fotos :D
so i ordered a new cable, and hope it is the cable and not the camera !
and then i desided to close down mytopteddy - the teddy production that is :D
