Hand dyed yarn and a lot.

I have test dyed some of the skeins I got in, 2 of the superwash BLF&nylon blend, 3 lace suri alpaca/ merin/silk and 3 with BFL. I love how the yarn takes the dyes, I even dyed two skeins with coffee and love the brown shaded color.

Over the weekend, I will start to dye up some of the wool 😛

All the skeins and more will be up in HK Spindles & Fiber soon,

Since I never remember to check my counter, was thinking to have a little lot. When I passed 30 000 visit without having a lot then, I take it now since I am in happy mode over the yarn and wool.

So all you need to doe is to leave a comment until Sunday, tell me also if you are a spinner ore knitter 😀

Here’s the news, fiber batt club is open :o)

I have updatet my webshop with a lot of batts and some hand dyed tops and also I have not open for a batt club, I hope that my fellow spinner will like the club.

As you can see, I have finnaly understand how I can make mosaci with flick. So here come another mosaic made from the hand dyed wool tops I sell.

I have got to new angora bunnies from Bente (Litleskare angora), shi is slowing down with the bunnies and I had place for 2. So here is my two new boys, Gråpus and Kid. I named Kid up after Billy the kid, I mean I have a Billy so why not a Kid?

I sign up for the hat along at Hobbyboden, that Kiwa and Tittei are arranging. For January you could choose between The Boy Hat and Let it Snow, I did not like the last one so much so therefore I knitted The Boy Hat.
I used Karaoke and needle size 4,5 mm, I love knit with Karaoke and had hope to buy more before it was empty at To Damer. May are selling out Karaoke, but after reading Anette’s blog I so that I did not needed to take a trip out, to bad for me – but maybe good for my pocket 😛

But eitherway, here is a photo of the second hat I knitted of The Boy Hat, I have also a third on the needles.

The model and owner of the new hat is Stian, Connie and I was invited to dinner from Dorte and Stian is here boyfriend. Dorte got a Calometry, but I forgot to take a photos of it.

Actually I forgot to take photos of all the handmade christmas gift I made last year, typical me 😀

Happy new year.

Start with a lottery that Rhonna at Spinners home arranged, the answer is in Norwegian 😛

a.  Hva har du lært om fiber/spinning/bruk av ditt håndspunnet garn i det siste året?  Har du funnet at du spesielt likte noe fiber/redskaper eller ikke likte noe?
Har prøvd nye ull og plantefiber, strikker opp mesteparten og selger en del av garnet. Har funnet ut at jeg liker ikke bomull i det hele tatt, elsker soysilk blandinger.

b.  Hva har du fortsatt lyst å lære eller der det noe du er nysjerrig om?  (Fiber, teknikker, metoder, redskaper)
Alltid kjekt å lære om nye teknikker, spesielt long english draw spinning.

c.  Hva er det du er mest stolt av i spinning/bruk av ditt håndspunnet garn i det siste året?  (skulle elske å se bilder her!)
Jeg har spunnet opp en fiber blanding 70% suri alpaca, 20% mulberry silk, 10% cashmere og jeg holder på å strikke Tiger eye lace shawl.  Digger, denne blandingen.

e.  Tenk litt om hva du ville ha om du vinne:  en håndtein eller fiber?
Elsker både håndteiner og fiber, men blir vel fiber siden jeg har en kremt, veldig stor håndteine samling. 😀

Wish you all a Merry Christmas

Yeah, I know very long time since last bloging.

To take it short, the boys has left home, Mitch is staying in the family and are co-owned with Yngve that has his cousin Ricco.

I went to Germany on a company trip so visit Marcus Mühle a new dog food we have got at work, we also stranded there for 24 hours since the airport was closed down because of fog. Else, I can not recomand Ryan Air at all, bad customer service if they have some at all, and if you have bad back as I have, don’t fly with them.

I have been spinning and knitting as crazy to get finish all the christmas presents, the last one will be finish tomorrow.

Oh, and I am getting a drum carderin Christmas present, how cool is that? 😛

So, this was the short update, just one more thing
