SPA is always a lovely weekend away with friends and I'm going to tell you…
I didn’t mean to leave you all with a cliffhanger for the weekend. I was going to post my Halycon order stuff on Friday but just never got to it. Don’t you hate when life gets in the way of knitting, spinning and blogging? So, without further ado, may I present the mail order haul from Halycon.
We have Ashford Hand Carders. What’s a spinner without some hand carders? I have those Wasabi dyed mohair locks to play with, don’t forget.
We have a color card from Country Classic Dyes. I know there are Kool Aid dyers out there (Hi! Norma!) who think it’s great and I’m sure it’s wonderful. But I’m really looking forward to dyeing some stuff with these dyes. I just have to decide which colors to get! Any advice from all you dyeing maniacs?
Finally, we have 2, yes, count ’em 2 pounds of white roving. One pound of romney and one pound of coopworth. Ready for dyeing, once I get a handle on that.
For those of you worried that it’s been all spinning, all the time over here, I assure you there has been plenty of knitting. I’m more than half way finished with Branching Out, the Jaywalker socks are moving along, and I’ve started another pair of mittens to go with my paletot that I’ll be wearing this weekend in Gettysburg.
Coming soon . . . handspun yarn pictures!
