Adventures in knitting; My TdF Rookie Year

I will dye my own fiber this year. (I have never dyed before)

 

I will spin up my home dyed fiber

 

I will work with wools I haven't spun before

 

I will improve my long draw

This is gonna have to be a fast and furious blog cause that has been the pace of my life lately and if I'm not careful everything will truck on without me. Momentum, what can you do about it?

so I got a spinning wheel at the end of February. Here it is, my Kromski Sonata in walnut, some of you will notice that even though I tried like hell to have a wheel different from my mums, I don't. I am really happy with it, even though we have had a few troubles.…

Adventures in knitting...when nothing goes right

I have been feeling pretty proud, not quite cocky, but almost. I haven't been knitting that long but I am being couragious and I am having all these positive experiences. But lately everything I cast on is total crap. When Mom was here visiting I tried working on this lacy scarf with butterfly motif and decorative beading for my DSIL. I cast on so many times too many times, more than twenty, maybe even more than that indiscernable number.

After mom left I took the skein of KP…

Congratulations on your new wheel! I hear it's going well! I do think there is a lot of carryover from spindle to wheel and vice versa. Enjoy!

Hi. I happened to take a look at who was on line tonight and saw your 'name'. I've been enjoying some visiting with your mom and a few others for the past few weeks. I have (many) daughters of my own who take part in fiber activities of one sort or another, so I just wanted to say I think it's great you are getting involved with knitting and everyone here. I've taken a look at your pics and, wow! I love some of those yarns.
