Fiber Friday 1/18/08

Here I am, pretending I don't have a cold, revisiting some yarn I spun last year.

Because looking at pictures of yarn is fun, I'm going to make you reminisce with me.

I've only got one to show off today but I suspect I'll have loads once the Tour de Fleece begins in one week's time (yay!)

This little number here I spun as a gift to my good friend Brooke.

There is natural colored coopworth, hand-dyed green mill ends, mohair curls and recycled sari silk.

This style of yarn is part of a series I keep re-visiting by taking neutral colors and pairing them with shocks of something bright. I've made one blue and one orange previously.

I had the luxury of hand delivering this yarn while on vacation last week during the great NW odyssey adventure I took. That reminds me, Black Sheep Gathering pictures... to come!

Now that I'm writing about it, I admit I'm kinda sad to be back home in the heart of darkness. I miss the good living my friends have worked out in the great NW. The older I get, the more I appreciate the concept of quality of life.

I better start carving out pieces for myself no matter where I am. Fiber Friday is a little taste I get each week. Yum!


The news is out, I am moving to Portland soon. So I guess I am carving out pieces of the good life this year after all!

Thanks for revisiting that LOVELY yarn for us! I love the colours, so soft together! What are you planning on creating with them?
Sorry you are sick, feel better soon!
