Fiber experiments and Giveaway winners

Posted: Tuesday, January 13th, 2009 @ 11:28 pm in Contest, dyed, Fiber Prep | 4 Comments »

Lots of fiber dying experiments last week. Not all were conclusive though… My conclusions for next time: – nope, dying a white batt of Cormo is not a good idea. Unless you want to learn wet felting.. It does make a beautiful scarf though, and I may still try to spin it. And colors look […]

A raffle for my friend : lots of prizes !

So my friend has had a rough time this year, ever since she split from her ex in january. She’s living with her 4-year old and battles to work enough to pay the rent and put food on their table everyday. A couple of days ago she told me she might not be able to […]

A blankie for lucie

My grandmother used to knit a lot. I’m not sure if she’s the one who taught me or if my mum did. But I remember seing her often with needles and yarn, knitting stuff for her numerous grandchildren. Then she got parkinson’s desease and gradually could not do a lot of the things she used […]

And the winners are…

So I just took a couple pictures. Here’s the Violaine top in progress so far : It’s a bit wrinkled from being crunched in my little bag. I’m overall very happy with the general looks which leads me to think I’ll probably get a really nice end result. However there are still many things I […]
