Hot Off the Wheel

I just finished plying four more ounces of BFL.

 It is destined to join these other BFL buddies one day in a colorwork project I've had in mind for a long time. I've got skeins and skeins of crazy multicolored handspun that's good for smallish projects but what I want to make now is something big. I want an important Fair Isle thing that I spun. Yep. What that will be. I have no idea. I'm working on it.

I have more of the overdyed green BFL in the stash to spin in case I run out-which you know I will. I'll also be looking out for more colors to add to the stash at this year's MDSW. If I can't find any, I just may have to consider buying more of the natural color and getting out the dye pots which would sound like fun if the potential for disaster wasn't so high. Me and dye....we have a history. It's best left to the experts.


  1. There's nothing like a good spin! Nice job.

  2. I have to say - dyeing fiber is not as easy as dyeing yarn!

    Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  3. Add one more color to the mix and you have the perfect Anatolian Rose Garden!!! Now you have me thinking I need to get yarns in those colors to make another one for me.

  4. Nice work! I think you could do that smocking stitch on mittens.......

  5. Beautiful colors that go so well together. Looking forward to seeing your project.
