Spinning my lovely fibre stash

I managed to find some time for my spinning wheel – yay!

I bought this lovely fibre from the Knit & Stitch show in October (London) – mix of wool, shiny fibres and gorgeous textured pink flecks.

Oooh delicious colour changes and texture. After spinning I then plied it using the Navajo method.

I also got the chance to use my new Niddy Noddy. I did have to check out YouTube videos to see how to wind it – tee hee.

Gorgeous skein of yarn after washing and setting (approx Aran weight). Now to think what I will make with it. Possibly a small knitting bag?

My Knitting and Stitching Show Stash

Went along to the Knitting and Stitching show and couldn’t resist getting this little lot for my stash.

This fibre is just so luscious. Mainly super soft Merino but slubby pink bits, sparkly lime, and shimmering silk too. I cannot wait to spin it. Got it at the Spin City stand.

I finally got myself a Niddy Noddy for winding my skeins – not more winding onto the dining chair back.

Sparkly Jute! Couldn’t resist it – and maybe I am a bit odd but I simply love the smell – so as well as keep touching and stroking it I have to keep sniffing it too. Tee hee hee x.

I bought a selection of crochet cottons in various thicknesses for my Passementerie making stash.

I also got some silky cords and who could resist these lovely pink beads.

 

Now to think about what I am going to make …….
