4 May 2008

I've been busy with spinning, dyeing, knitting & working on a new bracelet design, so I've missed a few weeks here.

first thing is that I needed some stitch markers for keeping track of the start of rows on circular needles, so I've made up these wine charms to slip onto the needles as markers.

this next pic is black alpaca fibre and random dyed tussah silk tops in blues and purples spun into singles then plied together.

silver grey melanian wool spun and plied, then random dyed with pink, purple and blue Ashford dyes.

this last pic is a new pattern I'm trying with my random dyed bamboo yarn. I had been knitting it into a moebius scarf, but undid it because I didn't like the way it was turning out.

My new knitted bracelet experiment isn't quite finished yet, so a pic of that will have to wait til it is finished.
