Handspun yarn Porn on the bobbin

wool Mohair

OHHHH i'm in love! I'm spinning this yarn from wool mohair laps that I got from tisjewel. I dyed them in one of my fav colors, Strawberry Nut... (check out www.tisjewelart.etsy.com she does beautiful things with fiber and mixed media)

This yarn may end up a Socktopia prize or it maybe for something else...you'll have to stay tuned for info on that..I'm don't normaly show my socktopia stuff before MM does...but I just hadddd to show you this, and well it's not done yet so it doesn't count!

I've been spinning alot of merino, so this is a nice change...no it's not as soft but it's beauty makes up for that!

I've been working on a lot of stuff I really can't talk about...I can't wait to share!!! Soon, soon soon! I haven't started any new knitting, well that I can show you. But I hope to start a pair of socks for Socktopia and 6 sock KAL... I love when a pattern works for both. So I should have some knitting pictures soon.

My skeinwinder and my extra bobbins are FINELY on the way here...My hackle should be here soon, it's been on backorder FOREVER! I reallly want to play with it! But I'm happy about getting the skeinwinder and the bobbins!

Sorry about no pictures of little Zara this week, I can't get her to sit still long..her ears are starting to stand and she is getting BIG.. I'll try to get a picture of her soon!
