Lovin' the Party!!

Hi everyone! I was away in Atlanta over the weekend (to see the newlyweds, what else?) and did not get to do much fiber stuff. I did start a laceweight scarf out of some Shetland and silk I had spun and plied. Pictures must come later, since I am away for the night on business and have no way to get pictures on this computer. I also am plying some alpaca/BFL 50-50 blend that I had dyed myself. The alpaca/BFL takes dye beautifully and spins like a dream. I highly recommend it!

I was so pleased to see how everyone is getting in on the posting. This is going to be so much fun. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to.

For the newbies who have never blogged... Come on in, the water's fine!

My Knitter's Loom is still en route, so I have no progress to report there.

Ta for now.

The Shetland silk blend really sounds nice to me. I am working on a Shetland Faroese shawl in a lace weight that I spun and plied and have left in the natural color -- a moorit. I just ordered 2 white Shetland lambs' fleece that I cannot wait to touch and feel. Did I mention that I have a partiality to Shetland?

I am really loving the Shetland, too. I ordered 1 lb. of white roving, which I will probably dye. It is really so much fun to spin. I would love to see a picture of your shawl when you are able to do pictures - I really like the moorit!

Jerry, I would love to see your shawl pattern. I found one I want to try, but I am trying to do it with the silk I had at the retreat and am not having much luck with it. I guess I should have used a blend. Sounds like I need to try Shetland too.
