This and that…

I spun one of my darling Easter egg batts. I just couldn’t resist, such a fluffy puff of fluff! 25g of organic baby alpaca, clipped angora, merino and silk spun long-draw. Navajo plied. DK weight, 60 metres which I think will be enough for me to make some bootees.

I love these batts, so very soft, took me quite some time to blend them but it was worth the trouble for the lovely spin it gave me..
and just because I love this gorgeous green…I’m showing you this one again.

I made this cute heart for a swap, should have been for Valentines but my arm was broke then. Luckily, I was given the same pal for an Easter swap so I got to knit it after all. I love the colours of the yarn, dyed by me 🙂
I also made her a couple of these dinky little chicks, hiding a Creme Egg inside. Handspun yarn again, well I didn’t have any yellow in my stash so I just had to create some of my own.
more spinning, this time some adorable super wash merino with a bit of real silver sparkle running through it. I hope to be getting some more of this fibre for the shop. Love these colours..

Tomorrow should be fun, I am going to a spinning Birthday party, a day of yummy food (we all have to take a plate of something delicious) and spinning in good company, I can’t wait!

    Oh I'm itching to strooke those lovely fibres – they look so so soft. That heart is very lovely and the chicks take me back to childhood.
