It was a great knitting birthday party 😀

I have also orded some new drop spindle from Bosworth, but since I would like to have them with walnut shaft it will take a little while before they arrive. So when I look at Spinnulla’s webshop and so the Greensleeves Vixen – Tulipwood 19 gram I had to try one of them, I gave Wenche the owner to Spinnulla some shipping tips and look how nice and lovely she is. I could choose 100 gram with what wool/fiber I wanted, of course I had to accept that gift 😛
I choosed Bambus Aegean, the color are gorgeous and the softness in this bambus are so soft.

Since I took a photo in the evening, the colors are not quite right. Look here for the correct color.


and here is the Greensleeves Vixen – Tulipwood 19 gram 8) the fiber is merino&silk blend from Highland Cottage.

I have bought a new drop spindle, this time I wanted to try a other type then Bosworth. So from Beth The Spinning Loft I bought a Lacewood Tabachek spindle, I was so ager to begin to spin with it that I forgot to take photos with the yarn on 😀
So here is a photo of the drop spindle with the finish yarn, I spun up some leftover with hand dyed merino 16 mic and spun it as a lace weight yarn.

So what doe I think about Tabachek? I love the design it is so beautiful scarved and spin very good, but still I am in love with my Bossies – they spin longer 8)

It is also more quiet in the house, 3 of the puppies has left to there new owners. 2 girls are again, Wilma to the left are staying here for while before she go to here new home and Lima to the right is staying with me.

Some knitting done.

After the puppies was moved done in the living room, I have not been spinning so much. With 5 puppies running and playing, I know from earliere experince that the spinning wheel will be very attemted to play and bit one.

But I did a lot of spinning before the puppie moved done, mostly white angora and other soft fiber that I will start to doe some dyeing soon.

Here is what I am finish with of knitting:

This hat I have knitted from some navahoe plyed handspun yarn, the fiber is Sherino and Alpaca I got from Allena.

Finish with another My So Called Scarf, it is knitted from the hand dyeing Sulka I did for a while ago.

I also have knitted some baby booties in angora and a headband from the leftovers I had from the hat. Photos are coming.

I got some new doggy fleece blanket and just left it in the hall. Charlie found them and had to try them at once, hi remind me of the story to HC Andersen; The Princess on the Pea.

I have also posted a lot of new photos of the puppies on my kennel website; Mataya.
