Some dyeing





Spent the afternoon yesterday dyeing these two fine merino & tussah silk slivers.
So have aptly named the colourway 'Candlemas' : )

I love the colors Lynn - my favourite! Are you going to spin? Read on your Ravelry that you only recently started knitting - wow, I am impressed by your work.

thanks! I am really pleased with this : )
I have another batch (different colourway) drying as I type.
I do spin - I am awaiting the delivery of 2 new golding spindles!!! I am very excited!!! I really enjoy spinning laceweight & E has caught the 'spin as thin as you can' bug.
I began to knit a year ago & will have been spinning for a year in april : )

Hi Lynn, beautiful fibre! Love the pink's in there, of course! I'll have something going out to you very soon, so keep your eye out. We're getting snow tomorrow, so no post office this weekend. Soon!
Blessings,
Lisa
P.S. Do you have any favorite videos or youtube's to learn spinning, both wheel and spindle?

Lynn said...

Hello Lisa!
well, of course I knew you would love the pink ; )
I havent really watched videos for the wheel, but for the spindle:

These are all by Abby Franquemont, she is a great teacher & I am sure she would have wheel videos, too.
