Episode 25: Farewell 2012

Check out this episode!

Introduce Yourself!

On The Needles & Hooks

Iced by Carol Feller

Hitchin' A Ride by Sharon Cheek

From this project I am learning:
  •  how to "read" crochet stitches
  • what " in the chain 1 space" means
  • increasing in crochet


Finished my Gale's Art BFL fiber in the Crayon Box colorway.
I spoke about how I prepared this fiber to spin in episode 24.
Techniques I used with this fiber:
  • spinning over the fold to blend color
  • drafted with a long draw woolen technique
  • left it as a single
  • fulled the skein to finish it
I ended up with 254 yds of a thick and thin single

Beauty shot #1
Beauty shot #2


On the bobbin now-  Bee Mice Elf    BFL/Silk (75/25) in the City Sunset colorway

On the drop spindle- 1.9 oz of Rambouillet washed fleece that I combed into top
                                   Drop spindle from Spinatude  .6 oz./18 grams
