One Crazy Fiber Lady

Mother’s Day

May 12th, 2008 · 9 Comments

Looking out the window now it is hard to remember how nice yesterday was.¬† Actually it was a pretty darn decent weekend all around. I had a lovely mother’s day, spendning most of it outside with the kids playing and Ladybug keeping me company.¬†


I finished the spinning the Still River Mill Mystery Bump singles, as well as 8oz of BFL from Little Barn to ply with it.¬† I just need to pull out the Fricke electric, find an empty Majacraft WW bobbin or two and then I can get to work.¬† You can see the range of colors through the two cakes.¬† Paired with the natural BFL, it should make a nice sweater for the little miss.¬† I’ll do a top-down raglan for her as I think that will bring out the best in the color changes plus.¬†


I can’t believe I spun a pound of fiber in a week.¬† I even finished another bobbin worth of the black corriedale on the Vermont wheel.

Amazing!¬† I started a new project yesterday.¬† This time it is dyed Merino from Clover Leaf Farms in Jungle Fever.¬† I picked up two 4oz braids of it at MDSW this year.¬†¬† I’m hoping to get a solid merino in either a dark blue or maybe a hunter green to ply with and make Alex a sweater.¬† Those colors would¬†look gorgeous on him.

And now a pictorial essay of my weekend:








I hope other mother’s had such a nice special day.

Craft on!
