Forest Jewels

My latest handspun was taken off the wheel just as summer was ending. The slightly variegated tones of the green roving remind me of our garden in bloom. The acrylic yarn is some novelty yarn I had in my stash. To me it looks like flowers woven around leaves. This skein was a pleasant spin. Though I tried for consistency, […]

Autumn Rose Yarn

These skeins are my latest handspun. July is too hot to spin most nights so I’m happy to have gotten these done before the temps got too high.

These skeins are a ply of Pancake and Lulu roving and Plotulopi yarn that Josh brought me back from Iceland years ago.   Plying the two together gave me […]
