Winter is still hanging on – we just had another storm pass through a couple days ago.

DSC_0006Spring is just days away – hopefully the weather will start to look like it. In the meantime I have been working on several different yarns. Going through my stash I have quite a bit of dyed merino that would go nicely with angora. I made several colors and really liked how they turned out. Here is a sample of one, more can be seen on my etsy store.

I also played with some lockspun. Here is one that I am working on made with mohair locks. I am thinking after its done I may add some color to it by dyeing.

DSC_0049This is one that is done – I will be listing it on etsy soon. The scarfs that are knit from these type of yarns are easy to make – large knitting needles and few stitches to the width you like and just knit. So pretty and fun.

If you would like to see some of the yarns for sale – click on the fiber and gifts button at the top or just email with any questions. Thanks for visiting!
