April fiber of the month club from Chameleon Colorworks was Figgy Pudding, I like this color much more then Easter Parade. Light pastels colors are not my favorite, but this is how it is to be member for a fiber club.
Here is photos of Figgy Pudding, it is BFL.
I also got my new Bosworth spindles, it is Red Cedar midi 20 gram and Zebrawood mini 17 gram.
I love them, I have already spin on round finish and ply Corridale with the midi Red Cedar spindle 😀
My brother work sometimes in Hamar, and since Spinnvilt is in Hamar. What more naturally is it to ask if he could pick up some wool I order from Spinnvilt. I love to try new wool and fiber type, so when Spinnvilt had got in many new type I just had to try. My brother and his family came to Bergen today and look what hi had with him 😛
Wool from Spinnvilt, from left is Corridale, Wensleydale, Shetland, Shropshire, Dorset Horn, Lincoln and in the bag washed Spelsau. Yiah.
Lincoln and Dorset Horn are interesting, but I think that will be a one time bargain. The wool are to coarse for me, wonder what type of yarn I shall spin with it. Corridale and the Shetland are very nice and will definitely be bought more of, Wensleydale I am not shore of before I have spun with it. Shropshire is a fine coarse wool, specially good for making sock yarn and are bought in for that purpose.
Eirik at Spinnvilt give a very good custom service and is one of the two Norwegian spinner & wool shop we have in Norway 😀
Yiah, I am in spinning heaven, just bad that I can’t use them on spinning before I totally finish with my firms accounting. But I can show what I got Thursday in my mail box:
From left, it is blue BFL, the other three skeins are merino&silk 50% all fiber are from Fiber artist. Bought at Garnkorgen – Sweeden. The two spindles are not new, but I had to try to spin the fiber at once I got the fiber 😛
Corridale&soy batts from Yarn Spider, new fiber for me. So I am excited to try.
White BFL tops, Fino baby alpaca yarn from Alpaca with a Twist, double row hand combs from Louet and Beth The Spinning Loft had also send sample of angora tops, that is the white little tops to the right. The red fiber is a sample off merino&tencel from Ashland bay. Thank you Beth.
For a long time, I have look at Knitzi trying to decied if I like it ore not. So in the end I just needed to buy one and try, I love it. Yes, it is bigger then the other knitting needles case I have, but my new Harmony Woods I want to protect 😀
I have knitted a hat for a friend of mine, it is from my own handspun yarn in merino. The merino I got from Nicole in a swap I joined at Raverly.
Presenting Mataya’s Golf Lima that will stay in the kennel 😛
