Well all of my photos (talking numbers in the thousands) and saved patterns (not as many as you would think) have finally caught up with my iBook. I went to upload pictures of finished knitting and spinning and new stuff that I dyed and I received a message that my free memory is low. Ok no problem I was going to get an external hd anyway. What I didn't realize was it was really low and the pictures only half uploaded. All 50+ pictures were half there. Of course I always click the option to erase the memory card after downloading so there were gone. I though maybe a few could be retrieved but anytime I clicked on them I was told that the file was incomplete. Oh well.
So I was going through my flickr account to see if there was anything I didn't blog about and I found roving that I never blogged!
Hopefully tomorrow I will get the external hd move some files and bingo I will be good to go!
So here we go...
Enchanted Knoll Farm is dear to me (shop found on esty.com and now they are selling stuff at the Loopy Ewe!). They have great stuff and they are a "green" business, so I like to support them.
Both of these are 100% merino top. The first is Beach Comber and the second is Deep Blue Sea. Similar but different.
Next up is stuff I bought from Sakina Needles, which I do believe Shewolfy enabled (we are having a little fun battle of sorts trying to enable each other with fiber - right now I think she is winning since I caved and bought stuff)
This is Dale colorway in 100% superwashed merino. I have 8oz so hopefully I can spin enough to make something really cool (maybe for a certain nephew of mine).
This is way outside the comfort zone. Silk hankies. Basically people take the silk cocoon and do something to it and layer each one on top of each other. I have read about spinning it over at knitty and it seems easy enough.
There are 10 hankies in each pile though I am not sure how many layers are in each hankie. Blue and purplish and red orange are the colors. Oh and the silk is Mawata. Not really sure about what that means either. Like I have said in the past I sometimes just jump into things. =)
So hopefully next time everything will be back to normal and I can show the knitting and spinning I have been up to.
