Seeing stars

Just a simple blue and white star baby blanket I worked up while watching my shows. I think I was watching Psych and Doctor Who while working on this one.

Flower hexagon blanket

Just the beginning of a new blanket. I'm up to 14 hexagons at the moment and based on my math (which should really never be trusted) I need 120 to get the finished size blanket I want. There are many, many more flowers in my future, but it's not a project that has a dead line so it will be done whenever. Plans for this is to most likely donate it.

Some Spinning Firsts

Other than a little sample of a single yarn that was about 4 yards total this is my very first one! And also my very first felted yarn as well. I love the energy that is see when you first wind off singles and how it all calms down once it is washed.

Before being washed. Always reminds me of spaghetti.

After felting- 206 yards
I also spun up another single yarn along with a two ply. Both were from the same fiber (Malabrigo Numbe in Aguas) that I split in half. After spinning it like that I think I might split some of the 8 ounces bunches I dyed at yarn school in two and spun two different ways as well.
