More photo madness.

So it was bank holiday weekend this weekend, which gave me a chance to do some more dying and spinning. Marie, Carmen and I had a lovely trip to Magor, despite that for some bizarre reason the shop we went to see was closed. So we went to Monmouth, a fabulous little town with a lovely little wool shop. We all brought something, and I couldn't resist some lovely Noro, although I can't remember the name of it, but it does have silk and cashmere in it.

Anyway with her Collinette Carmen made this:


Isn't it amazing???!!

I may try and coax the pattern out of her to post here, any interest?

So here is some (yes some!!!) of the dying and spinning I did over the weekend:

This went from this:


to this:

Dscf0434 Yummy lace weight mohair.

Dscf0445_1  Silk and wool, probably suitable for weaving more than knitting because its very fine, but not that soft.

Dscf0425 Some lovely soft merino roving's to spin.

Dscf0431  More fluffy merino.

Dscf0436 Some Wendsleydale for spinning.

Here was some of the spinning:

Dscf0444 This is Navajo plyed merino and cashmere.

Dscf0449_1 More cashmere and merino.

And this which I am very very pleased with: Cashmere and merino smooth singles.



I just love this photo, on the left is my hand dyed sock yarn, it is sooooo soft!

Refer to the photo album for the rest!!

So I must thank Carmen for taking these pictures for me, I really appreciate it. I am desperate for a camera which will take adequate photo's, so here's my plan. I am going to save up by selling some of my fabulous products. I am starting to list some of them on eBay, if your interested here's the link:
