My friend Linda came over on Sunday and helped me get acquainted with my new spinning wheel.  With her much needed assistance I managed to make my first skein of yarn!  It’s a nice blend of merino batts and roving from my fellow Phat Fiber artists along with some fabulous wool locks that Linda dyed and shared with me.

Think I might try the wham bam cowl for this.

I was able to play with my new Louet drum carder for the first time today!  I had almost forgotten how much I love blending fibers.  It’s a lumpy, textural mixed batt of Suffolk and Perendale wool with a hint of merino and a good dollop of cashmere noils.  Just in time for blooming spring flowers…

It reminds me of pansies, a garden staple of mine, when I decide which flowers I’m going to plant each year.

This is the Phat Fiber sample for May’s box.  It’s a 1/4 ounce of hot pink 100% cashmere noils.  Maybe you will find one in your box 🙂

 

It’s also available now in my Etsy shop too.

I want to thank Phat Fiber for highlighting my etsy shop and some of my original accessories for knitter and felters, as well as patterns and kits, plus some nice lampwork beads.

Phat Fiber is a nifty site for people interested in handmade items.

From their site…
Phat Fiber is a mystery box of awesome samples for the yarn and fiber enthusiast in us all. With a focus on the independant artisan, this box is a super grass-roots treat for the senses.

When your box arrives, chock full of samples, expect to be overwhelmed with the sight and feel of artful yarns, bits of roving, small batts, stitch markers, original patterns, valuable discount coupons and much much more.

Inside, you could find anything that yarn and fiber enthusiasts would love…even an herbal tea or two!

Phat Fiber seeks to bridge the gap between talented online artisans and consumers hungry to support the independent small business.”

If you get a chance, stop by their site… (My stuff is on their blog for Dec. 14, 2008.)

Part of their nice comments…
“Take a look at Lynne’s shop! She really has everything there! I am personally eyeing the sock blocks! No splinters or mildew from being wet like wood sometimes does! I think she even has some “blond moment” ones on clearance *grin* She has a fancy laser that she uses to cut out and engrave original designs! So, for all of you small business owners out there, get a hold of Seven Yaks and have them do some promotional gauges for you! She does wholesale her products- what a great opportunity!”

How nice. 🙂

I’ve also included a link on the left for easy access in the future.
