Nice soft and cute too
I made a new blanket for a little girl…I hope that she will love it…I also made a matching scarf and hat for her too. This one will have a nice new home in Michigan, it’s for one of my sisters friends daughter. I hope that she will love it. This blanket is an over sized crochet granny square. If you like it there are many You Tube vidoes on it. I like the Mikeysmail,
I like how he shows and explains how to do stuff. I used bernat pipsqueek yarn in candy girl and pink. Hope that you all enjoy the blanket as much as I do.
Since I recieved a spindle for christmas and I have used them a few times I can say that I am coming a long ways in a short time. I am still having some minor dificulties with drafting. I have many fibers that just came in and some more on the way.
The fiber that was used here is a wool fiber that came in a kit that I recieved for christmas. Lee spun her very fist yarn this night. I took her yarn and plied it with the yarn that I spun.
I think that it looks great.
Well what do you guy think of our set yarn?
I LOVE YARN…
So what can I say…I love yarn all sorts and textures. I love colors and natural as well. The softer the better I am working on using some of this up in order to make some room, since I am getting a Ladybug spinning wheel here in the next week. I can’t wait! I am in the process of getting projects lined up, this should help me learn to knit a little bit better. I am currently working on a matching scarf and hat, that is knitted. It is going to look so NICE. I can’t wait to finish. I am knitting them both. Let me tell you this fiber arts thing is amazing. I may be new to the knitting, crochet, and spinning world, but I am in LOVE, wait let me rephrase this I am ADDICTED, oohh, I think I am both. I can’t ger enough of this.
Some of my fibers…I can’t wait to spin them
The top one is from Greenwood fiber.
I also have a nice stash of fiber going now too. All sorts of fibers and colors, both natural and dyed. I am in the process of learning how to draft to achieve the perfect colors that I am wanting. This whole world is exciting to me. I have little time left after school, work, and the kids but I sure make the time. I also enjoy sharing them with you all.
We have been a busy home the last week or so. It started with having a sick kid. Yes one of them finally got sick then with me being in school and working but a few doubles in there too, trying to keep the house up and family time too, its been a little hectic.
We did get a new sofa, one that the whole family can sit on, YAY. I am so excited for this. I have also been taking some time to read about learning to spin fibers, and I have also been learning to knit. I will be posting pics of my first completed project. I am working on a matching knit hat and scarf. I am also working on making a skein of yarn for Gabby. Its taking a little longer than I’d like but its going to look awesome. I am spinning it on a drop spindle and the white that I am using is a little harder than I expected to spin. So I am taking my time to make it nice. This will be my first big skein that will look nice. Now what I am trying to decide is if I am going to do a 2 ply or a 3 ply.
All this thinking is making me excited to spin and knit up some more, so I’m going to head off to do some crafting.
Well, I recieved my first knitting lesson the other night. It went well….ok, at least in my opinion. Ill let you guys be the judge. I didn’t use regular yarn, I guess that I am partial to the novely yarns….Not sure yet. I love yarn of all sorts…..
This is what my first try at knitting looks like. Well it’s not too, bad not at all. I’m not sure if I like it or love it just yet. I can tell you that if I do get the hang of it I just may not crochet to much any more.
