Bliss, my Woolmakers spinning wheel

Posted: Wednesday, June 11th, 2014 @ 3:47 pm in Fiber Prep, Hackle, spinning | No Comments »

For ages I’ve had dreams of getting a spinning wheel… someday. We didn’t have enough room (and yet already so many craft supplies!!) and not quite the budget either. I would spin every now and then either on my handmade spindles, or my kick-spindle. Then a few weeks back, Heike invited me to her studio […]

More natural dying experiments: dandelion, red cabbage and grape-juice

Yesterday I had a very nice afternoon. After a visit from my friend Emily, Laurent took the girls out for a bike ride and I had the flat all to myself and cooked. So enjoyable ! Because our place is so small, the girls are usually always running around me whenever I try to cook.. […]

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. […]

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 […]

My new Hackle !!

I first met Laurel through Ravelry in the Fiber Swap Club. She’s the one who sent me the beautiful Merino roving I used for my mini-shawl. She’s lucky to have a very crafty husband who makes all sorts of tools, including hackles which Laurel sells in her Etsy store on top of her fiber goodies. […]
