spinning + photo story

Next week, I have a new pattern out. For the past few weeks, I’ve been putting off publishing a different blog post that I need to publish not only for you to read, but because it’s something I need to write and put out there. Right now, however, here are some yarn pictures.






This is a skein of yarn that I spun from the Columbia fleece I got last summer. I am so happy with it. It is squishy and, honestly, it feels like a foam mattress. If foam mattresses smelled like a barnyard, that is. I love the natural color, and while I do plan to dye some of this wool, I want to leave this yarn blank. This is the first time I’ve spun woolen from rolags, and while I’m not entirely positive I was doing it correctly, it does look like a woolen-spun yarn.

Also, I’ve been working on a photo story that focuses on the issues that were discussed, disputed, and rallied in the nineteen-teens, but put into a slightly modern/creepy light. I’m not sure if I’ll share the entire story here when it’s done, but here’s a little peek of it:

See you soon. Next week on Monday, to be precise. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Hopefully that didn’t sound creepy. No, no, I don’t have your address, I don’t mean it in that way.)

  1. I am in love with that photoshoot!! The pictures and the idea behind them. It’s just wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your yarn also looks beautiful. I can’t wait to see what you make out of it. Honestly, you could probably just keep it as it is and just be happy when you look at it. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. That’s actually what I was considering doing. Ah, Callie, you know me so well. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! That middle one is the sepia experiment I was telling you about. I’m actually thinking about doing most of them that way. What do you think?
