colors and numbers

blakestyger
"blake's tyger"

blakeslamb
"blake's lamb"

thecolor
"the color"*

solitude
"one hundred years of solitude"

solitaire
"desert solitaire"

snow
"snow falling on cedars"

glasstyger
"glass tyger"*

glassocean
"glass ocean"*

the glass series were a fun experiment for me... i may dye more in this style (around the world-- twice over), but i'm not sure for sale in my etsy store. they take longer than the others (twice, and i dye each of the runs individually)... but i like the way they look and the ocean is spinning up nice, even though i'm not keen on blue & greens. i think i'll keep "the color" as well, perfect since i'm no longer afraid of purple.

and numbers?

Who needs regular blogging with such lovely fiber pron?

Pretty rovings, Aija. I'm currently knitting a scarf from the singles I spun from one of your rovings. The color is lovely. The spinning? Well I still need a little practice with that!

Andrea said...

I'm really interested to know if you have any tips on spinning. I'm trying my hand at it and all the internet instructions in the world won't help me but tips are always good :D

All the colors are so lovely. I just got my first wheel!!! I am working on some not so desirable roving at the moment to get the hang of it. I can't wait to actually be able to buy some nice roving and spin it up.

Chris said...
