My fiber journal

One of the spinning folks that I purchased some goodies from told me that I should keep a fiber journal. So I guess I will be doing that with this blog to chronical my adventure with the different fibers be it spinning, dyeing, crocheting and/ or needlefelting.

So far I have worked with:

Mystery Batt (acquired from my mother) ~ It spun up nicely. She gave me about 6 ozs to work my nerve and techniques up. Thanks!

Rambouilett (acquired from RowanTree Woolery) ~ This spun up awesomely. I really like RowanTree Woolery's fiber plus their customer service can't be beat. I will definately continue to purchase fiber from them.

  • Dark chocolate: I really like how that spun up that I had to get 3ozs more to make a full worsted weight skein. LOL

  • White: This is soo awesome too that I got 1lb more to not only make another full skein but to make a few full skiens and hand dye them too. ;o)

Also on the way to me now, I have in natural/ white :
Domestic Top 6ozs
Corrediale Cross 14ozs
NZ Romney 2ozs
Falkland 4ozs

So let's just say that I will be in fiber heaven for the next couple of weeks. LOL I have heard that Romeny is rough which if I find that to be true I will just use that to learn needle felting. Yep I have been wanting to try my hand at felting especially after seeing a woman demonstrating it at the L.A. County Fair where my mom was demonstrating bobbin lace. So I will be trying that too. Oh the joys of being a fiber artist. ;o) You can never get enough. LOL
