April is around the corner now, high time for March’s Fiber Giveaway !! (Now CLOSED – come again next month for April’s Fiber Giveaway !) No I didn’t forget about it, but truth is I discovered this month that the postal rates for international small packages have doubled (insert rant against terribly illogical rates of […]

New orange Art yarn, and February Fiber Giveaway

Posted: Sunday, February 22nd, 2009 @ 6:44 pm in Art yarn, Contest, Fiber Prep, Freebie, Monthly Fiber Giveaway, spinning | 32 Comments »

Yesterday I started spinning my Fiber Swap Art batts. As you can see, I love color ;-) Needle-felted some flowers, beads and oddments, and spun using the autowrapping and foreign objects techniques from “Sit and spin“. I love that the batts contain all sorts of fibers and textures (including chunks of locks) which renders beautifully […]

New yarn : autowrapped with cocoons. Bliss…

So, yesterday I Sat and spun until 10 pm… :-P To reply to Jacey‘s comment, yes I’m spinning on a kick-spindle and have to slighlty adjust the techniques so I can use them with the spindle. But really it looks like most should work just fine. Just not sure I can do the racing stripes, […]

A whole new world

Material Whirled is having a Valentine yarn Giveaway. You gotta have a look there, first maybe to try to win the yummy skein of handspun, but most of all, to read all the fantastic quotes in the comments. (and another cool contest here, to win a beautiful nacho nuno-felted poncho) I have finally finished working […]

Fiber talk and January Fiber Giveaway

Whoops, didn’t mean to take so long to post .. Week-end was busy with friends and it’s already tuesday ! :-P Here’s the promised pic of that fiber I blended on my Hackle. As usual, I carded the remaining fiber with my handcards. Pretty, no ? I tried to practise with my hand-cards the other […]

Tv or sleep ? – Spoiled !

Laurent and I used to sleep really bad, waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to sleep again until several hours later. Living in a really small place, we sleep in the living-room, so we first started with shutting down all the computers, servers and dsl lines during the night. […]

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 […]

Ugly little mitt, lots of snow and more fiber on the Hackle

Publishing 2 posts today but I’d just rather make the most of the free time ahead for once, with both girls asleep and hopefully recovering from the cold and ear infection they caught last week. They’ve had plenty of time inside and rest but I guess they’re just tired of this first trimester of school/daycare… […]

Playing with the Hackle, day 2

Posted: Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 @ 4:05 pm in dyed, Fiber Prep, Hackle, review, spinning | 1 Comment »

As Promised, here’s the sequel of my first tries with my new toy, the great Hackle from Laurel, aka CatskillMtnFibers on Etsy. This time I prepared some fiber in advance, and dyed some cormo (which Laurel had also so graciously sent along with the hackle) and fine Merino in a deep burgundy color. I also […]
