It’s been really hot for a few days now.. and it’s June already !! Today I got the inflatable pool out for the girls for the first time, and we ate outside and had a barbecue.. I love it when even the school/work days feel like holidays ! :-) The puffy-flowers little blankie is nearly […]

I dyed some fiber yesterday in between other things.. life seems hectic these days, SO many things piling up on my to-do list! ..and then we’re going away again this week-end, which means fewer chances to get them done ! :-P I hand-carded several mini battlets, which will eventually become art yarn kits for the […]

Update on February’s Fiber Giveaway

Posted: Friday, March 13th, 2009 @ 4:10 pm in Monthly Fiber Giveaway | No Comments »

Just a quick post to send a shoutout to Emy, who still hasn’t sent me her postal adress so that I can send her the blue Mini-batts. I’ve checked my spam folder and didn’t see anything, can’t comment on your blog, and apparently my messages are rejected as “containing spam or virus content”. :-/ In […]

A Malabrigo experiment, and Finished Orange yarn !

Posted: Friday, February 27th, 2009 @ 7:17 pm in Art yarn, Contest, Crochet, Knitting, Monthly Fiber Giveaway | 3 Comments »

There’s been some talk lately about Malabrigo Merino pilling like crazy. I’m not even going to try and argue about that, but was just wondering whether knitting it versus crocheting it made any difference. My friend Jette made her beautiful Violaine top with Malabrigo and she says it doesn’t pill. So I’m trying a little […]

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 […]
