lots of fiber

April 21, 2007

well I have lots of new things yay!!!

forst is some roving I discovered at the markets at The Channon, this woman was seeing tons of it and I picked up 2 lots of about 3oz each for $14 all up.


I dyed up the blue faced Leicester with some of the KoolAid that Orghlaith sent me. For some reason the photo comes out very brown, it is actually a deap red/maroon with light pink though it, I used the cherry, grape and pink lemonade I think.

I made some socks for Rohan using the generic toe up pattern. They took me about 3 days for make due to the size and I think they turned out rather well myself.

And the best of all? I plyed some of the Garden Dream roving, and it has come up fantastic, I started doing a 2 ply but it was thinner then I wanted, so I changed to a navajo ply and it is a sock-think sock yarn, I have 52 yards of it but I still have another single to ply as well as what looks like 17 tons of roving to spin LMAO. I took a close up with a 3mm/size 3 needle next to it. I was going to put a coin next to it but then thought only Aussies would be able to get an idea of size from that LMAO.

    Oh I love the colors. And the socks look really great. Perfect for these colder nights. Your spinning is looking really good too. I think I envy you that. Yes, yes I do.

    You’re spinning is coming along well – good on you!! Knitting with your own handspun is a buzz. I’m jealous of your Blue Faced Leicester. Do you know if it is from OS, or grown here? I’ve been trying to source some in Australia.

    Hi Natasha,
    Just another Aussie dropping in to say Hi – *found* you via the Lime n Violet board 🙂
    I’m envious – you can knit socks! They look awesome 🙂
