I have been busy spinning Lacey's amazing third shear fleece into fingering weight yarn for my friend so she can knit herself a lace shawl.
This is the shawl my friend knit me with Lacey's first shear that I spun. It has incredible luster and I love wrapping myself in my special sheepie girl :-)
A fine medium silver Alpaca fleece that has been in my stash for a few years. I handcarded it with Bombyx silk for a laceweight yarn.
Two of my new lace magazines. Orenburg shawls and scarves along with the Estonian lace seem to be my favourite patterns these days. I have some gorgeous type B/C Pygora clouds on their way to me. This fiber is the closest I think to the Orenburg goat down used in the Orenburg shawls.
My son bought me this skein of hand dyed Cashmere/Silk (from Seracin Silks) for Mother's Day....just needs blocking. The pattern is Stork Nest...an Estonian pattern from Nancy Bush.
Surprise...another Nancy Bush pattern....Norwegian Wedding Gloves in Regia Silk (love this yarn).
Selbuvotter in Alice Starmore yarn. Fabulous stuff!
Recent pics of me....I love weight training (taught both classes and individual before) and am so happy to be back into it. Great for the body, mind and spirit :-)
