This is the rainbow yarn I’ve been spinning. I REALLY like how it came out. I need to spin more singles yarn (especially since plying is not my favorite part of spinning. ;) ) Enjoy!

Happy Wheel-aversary!

Three years ago today, I brought my wheel home. Seems like I just got it!!! :)

What better way to celebrate than by spinning! :)

I have finished spinning the rainbow singles. I will let the twist settle a bit before I wash and finish the yarn.

I have now picked up the pink & black merino/tencel blend I started a while ago. (Although bobbin #1 is missing. Time for a bobbin hunt, I guess). But here’s the progress on bobbin #2.

Can’t wait to see how this looks plied!! :D

my work is having a drive for goods and supplies for a local domestic violence shelter. their need includes art supplies.

I had a box of acrylic yarn that I took in and today I stopped Michael’s to pick up some more stuff.


I got some yarn (it was on sale!!), crochet hooks, couple sets of straight needles and a set of double pointed needles.

Me? I’m still working on the bunny… It has a head, 2 ears, a body, 2 arms and one leg. Not much hopping goin’ on around here yet. ;-)

See ya! :D

Here is what I am spinning. :) this is vintage stash. I am pretty sure that this yarn will stripe. Can’t wait to see how.


It is merino tencel, dyed by Spincerely Yours. After spinning that cashmere silk blend, this fiber is easier and going much faster previous attempts at spinning this blend.


happy new year!
