    Big Grin Are you a Yarn Hoarder? I am!

    Advertisements
    So, I am currently teaching myself to spin yarn.

    Yes, you heard me! I bought a spindle and some wool batting and I'm DOING IT! I love it honestly. I'm really hoping I can get a spinning wheel soon. If ya'll didn't know my husband and I are getting Alpacas this winter and will be selling their fiber and yarn I spin. I'm pretty excited about this.

    My next project I need to learn is how to Tunisian Crochet. I am pretty good at crocheting, but not so hot at knitting. Apparently this is a technique where you crochet, but the stitches look like knitting. I'll have to let you know how that turns out! LOL.

    Here is some of my home spun so far. I'm still a bit chicken to start on my Suri Fiber I have here that I've been cleaning by hand.

    I think I'm going to make myself a funky scarf out of this. The batting is called "Potluck Roving" I seriously love the crazy colors!

    Klynn! I'm a firm believer in the fact that if you know how to read, you can learn how to do ANYTHING!
