Fiber Arts Friday

Fiber Arts FridayWell, I missed last week’s FAF post.  We were out of town, staying at a hotel with free wifi, but somehow I still missed posting.  What can I say?  It was just one of those trips.

Here is one of the pics I took at the wedding.  Now I remember why I don’t shoot weddings anymore.  I get so stressed about getting the best shots and then editing them just right.  The bride and groom, in this case anyway, were just happy to have a few shots to remember the occasion.

Now to the Fiber Arts.  I’ve been working on a couple of projects.  I worked on knitting the second sock of a pair for my husband while I was traveling.  Need to finish it now.  Just having trouble getting started on it again.  Maybe this afternoon will be the day! Don’t have pics of them yet.  And I also don’t have pics of the wool I’ve been spinning since we got home.  It’s a bright raspberry fuchsia shetland.  Even after washing, dyeing, carding, and carding again (I think it three times total), it still has quite a few seeds and hay in it.  I’m picking it out as I go.  It will be a two ply and very ‘rustic’ in texture.  But I think it will be nice as a sweater.  Or possibly the accent color on a sweater.  We’ll just have to see after it’s finished.

What I do have a photo of is this: This is the yarn spun from the carded batts from a couple weeks back.  I’ll find the link and add it here if I remember when I’m done.  This yarn turned out very nice.  I’m not sure if I’m going to list it in my shop, or use it myself.  I really should list it.  I have plenty of yarn for myself already.  But it is always so tempting to keep yarns for myself.

Now comes the part where you can participate in Fiber Arts Friday.  Post a comment in this post with a link to your Fiber Arts post for the week.  I’m looking forward to seeing what all of you have been working on.

Talk to you later.  Enjoy!
