BFL. For freakin sure.

Its BFL tonight. Here looky. I know these update posts are a bit boring and I have a ton of photos to share of Spindlefrog fibre spun up that I promise to show very soon. Now if I could just locate a time machine Id be all set :0)

Can you guess? Yep its an update!

Bad blogger again :0( Ive missed a couple of updates what with being busy and well, rubbish really. But anyways...update YAY! This is corriedale in all its loveliness. The two on the bottom (centre and left) are named Bella and Edward because I am a bit daft/obsessed/influenced with the Twilight Series at the moment :0) You know when I said busy well what I meant was busy reading. Ive had a four day reading marathon and got through all four books. Couldn't put them down but now they are happily forever after in their little vampire world I can get on with my own life :0) You should read them but you should give over a couple of days.

Drum roll please...its another update!

Another double update post because I didn't do it yesterday (and Ive missed one out entirely tut tut).
Above we have some corriedale and some falkland (you know how I love that fibre) and below that's lovely lovely wensleydale. I adore the long wools so I'm a happy spinner tonight.

Tomorrow I will be updating a totally Brand new spanking fibre for the shop that is amazingly all ready to go. Its dyed and dried and labeled and photographed and EVERYTHING. All it needs is to be uploaded. I'm feeling super organised today but of course that wont last long. Not days or hours but usually minutes before the wheels start coming off the wagon. I'm basking in it now though.
All this dyeing is a bit of a trial run for something I will reveal soon (if it comes off--fingers crossed).

Just a tease

Here we have the Devinne Luxury Spinners Sets. Oh me oh, oh my oh! these are lovely, soft, squidgy, pretty and every other good fibre related word. They were a trial run for the shop and have now already gone to their new homes but there will be more. Oh yes.
Just for future information they are made up of over an ounce of cashmere, baby alpaca, kid mohair, mulberry silk, angora and baby camel again dyed in coordinating colours just like the original Spinners Sets (which there will also be more of in the run up to Christmas). I see a sampler shawl for these but cant wait to see what other folks make with them.

Soft soft soft....ohhhhh

Soft soft soft just like the the title of this post says. In this update we have some brightly coloured corriedale that have been dyed with fireworks in mind. I love this time of the year but my doggies dont :0( As Bonfire Night gets closer and more fireworks go off I end up with three, very beautiful but not small, border collies sitting on my knee all at once. Its quite a sight how they all fit on.
We also have some oatmeal BFL too. Now this is the bees knees. It is incredibly soft. I want to build a big nest of it and stay wrapped up until spring. I don't keep much back just for me because I would end up buried in fibre but this stuff...oh...ahhh I've got some for me. I'm thinking a Koolhas hat. Hand spun and cables is there anything better?

A little late...

We have falkland.......
And we have Spinners Sets........ (crowd goes wild).
Me well Im a falkland girl through and through and have kept one of the braids to spin myself. Its in the plie and on the list so keep posted because I will be posting a photo in about....say maybe.......5 years from now. Yes my spinning list is that big and Im a slow spinner. Well thats not technically true because I get alot faster when the internet concetion fails. Wonder if the two are related?....hmmmmmmm

Multi Coloured Hands.

Ive been dyeing up like a mad thing in the last few days. For some reason Ive got ants in my pants and a bee in my bonnet and a...err.... chameleon in my eyes. This is the BFL that's gone up tonight but Ive got Falkland drying and Shetland ready for rinsing and the fibres for more Spinners Sets ready to go for tomorrow. So can you guess what colour my hands are?
