Wool arrived and dyeing fiber.

Since I thought it would be boring to just sell white and finished dyed fiber, I started to dye again. Here is 5 tops I dyed, it is 2 tops with Falkland, 2 tops with BFL and 1 tops with Optim. The last one I am not satisfied with, since the Optim was not dyed in the middle.


Winter Berry – Falkand tops


Winter Land – Falkland tops


Berry – BLF tops


Grape – BFL tops


Spring – Optim

Except for the Optim, they other hand dyed tops will be put out for sale when my web shop is up and running, hopefully soon. But Beau are excused, hi and Allena got a new family member June 18 😛

The lace socks are finised, my first english pattern; Fiber Trends – Lupine Lace sock pattern.

I have also finally started on Pretty as a Peacock Shawl, this is my first lace shawl. English pattern and not the most easy on, so I wonder what I am thinking on and to be honost. I have already knitted wrong two times, I thought I was finish with chart B. Then I was missing 5 stictes and took up a lot of rows, then I started again. But when I check the pattern, I so that something was wrong and yes, oh dear. I had began on the wrong row, so I just had to take up all the rows and start again from row 46. But know I have control again :mrgreen:

Wish me good knitting luck on my following journey 😛

Here is the Merino&Silk blend from Fiber fleece artist I bought from Garnkorga in Sweeden, the quality for that price is not worth it. The wool had felted a little bit so it was small neps in and therefore I am not satsfied over the quality. Here is the photo of the yarn.

Oh, I almost forgot to write about the most important news, I have got a new drop spindle. A Kundert Birdseye Maple, Wenge, Zebra on Walnut Whorl, I love it. Despite of the weight, it is 1 oz it don’t feel so heavy at all. It is in very good balance and spin forever, I have got a new spindle in my favorite collection.

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.
