I love Maria Denmark design.
Her pattern is easy to understand as well as make. Best thing is fitting!!
Though my style is not very glamorous, this tee is comfortable.
This is my first club fiber from “Southern Cross Fibre Club” (aug 2014). Color is saturated and lovely to spin. It is such a treat for me!
Though it is Falkland wool, I am planning 3-ply sock-yarn.
I kind of fell in love with and had to get some of her roving. This is my first purchase of thin roving.
First I tried to spin, but it did not work. Well, bo-la! I knitted with thin roving and loving it!
Using stitch dictionary, I made up my own cowl.
As stated previously, I am planning to spin for tapestry.
Mixing three different fiber from different dyer makes this project more fun!
I am planning to spin for tapestry. Using 4×3 oz fiber, I should be able to make decent size.
I have been listening many people say we should know our fiber better in order to use properly.
Well, hearing is not knowing.
I should be able to track my spinning-way better than previously. Since I started to “Journey to the Golden Fleece”. I want to make this blog to be my journal to this journey.
I used non-dyied shetland and Cotswold sheep, and purchased green fiber (merino, nylon).
Cotswold felt too rough for me to make consistent thick-thin yarn..
Since cotswold had great curly crimp, I should try another type of yarn.
I decided to comb my two-year old fleece from Hokkaido. This fiber was washed and included many vegetable matters.
Shetland is double layer, and it was hard carding.
Here is my washed fiber.
Set fleece into comb.
Added some more!
After combing once and transfer.
Finally got to diz. I used five-yen coin.
Half of fleece became waste. I will card the waste.
