Ok....while at the Destin Spin In, one of the gals (Marsha, there it's out)....was spinning Dicentra's 'Wood Mist'. I fell in love with it...isn't that usually what happens..."I love what she's spinning, where can I get it".... Anyway, Lisa was out. When she returned home she let me know that she did have 8 oz left and it became mine. I have decided to spin it bulky...I'm in the mood to knit with bigger needles...so here it is. Lovely. I can tell you that it was also gorgeous in a Dk weight.

Ok....so I've spun a new fibre and I'm in love. This is a Polworth Silk blend from Three Waters Farm that is soft and luscious to spin and I'm sure will be the same to wear. I've spun this for a mystery knit along with Jimmy Beans Wool....should be fun.

Ok....silk Eco dyeing....mmmmm...... Just as side note, many of these were dyed with materials from birthday bouquets....an abundance of wonderful colors and material in the middle of winter. Thank you for the lovely gifts that gave...just a little more.

Ok....so Jan (of Daily Fibers...beautiful hand painted fibers)...has dyed up some gradients, which are so pretty. I have spun the gray and knitted into a simple repeat lace pattern. I think it came out lovely. You can get the pattern from this blog (click here or the pattern page link in the upper left corner of the page) or Ravelry enjoy!!
