More Yarn Magic

I spent some quality time with my spindle this week, and I definitely think I am improving.  Spinning is a little like magic.  You take some fluffy fleece twist it up and all of a sudden it becomes something completely different.  Knitting and crochet are pretty magical too but I have little to show you on those fronts, Though I am glad to say I finished my purple headband.
purple headband on me.

I started with 2 oz of fleece for both of these and you can see that I lost much less fleece on the second skein.
This is my favorite picture I think it shows of the texture of the yarn beautifully.

Gorgeous chunky yarn from mud puddle picnic roving.  You can see a picture of the roving and some more yarn I am working on over on Wednesday's post.

I had a bit more black and grey left after I finished plying, so I have tiny mini-skein.
Be sure to drop by Tamis, Wonder Why Alpaca farms, natural suburbia or Crochet Addicts to see more fantastic finished projects.

  2. Yay for your handspun! Spinning takes time and practice...but is so rewarding!

  3. Your yarns are looking great! I love the thick and thin yarn.
