I carded new batches of super soft merino/silk batts – I didn´t entirely get around the autumn colours, I know it´s still summer, but I love those shades too much to leave them out. :o)

And of course some new yarns and rovings were created this month, merino/silk blends, bluefaced leicester, pure merino rovings, wensleydale long locks, hand painted merino lace, baby alpaca fingering weight, and a beautiful handspun thick and thin super chunky baby in stripey black, white and, grey that I have called “Snowy Rock”. Have a look:

Remember my pink-purple handspun merino-bluefaced leicester yarn from July´s blog? Well, I spun a second skein in the same colourway and a third one in multicolor rainbow yarn from my space dyed wool slivers, coming to about 310g (10.9oz) of yarn between worsted and chunky weight, with an approximate total length of 400m (440yds). I crocheted a beautiful and cosy hooded scarf with them. I love the finished piece very much, it came out the way I had hoped. It will be perfect for very cold weather. I kept my promise, didn´t I? I did not crochet another beanie…. :o)

Beanie production

I think that 2016 will be a crocheting year for me :o) I have been enjoying working my yarns with the little hook for the past months, and now I have found my passion for beanie hats, variegated, stripey, gipsy style or boho, they are great fun to make, especially with yarns that have freshly come off my bobbin or out of my dyepot.

Any head size between 20-23 inch, (that´s 50-58cm) can be finished with 1 skein (180-200 yds) of my worsted weight single yarn. The yarn in purple shades I didn´t use for my hats, I thought that someone else should have fun creating something gorgeous with it. :o)

 

 

The hats are now displayed in my DaWanda store, and the single handspun yarns can be found in my etsy store. I will be making fresh yarns on a regular basis.

Everyone Happy Fiber Crafting!
