Eye see Yarnzzzzzzzzzz

Nip’n’tuck yarn close up
Something I have been working on for a long long time: Art yarns. I have been spinning art yarns when I first started selling and going to markets with my fibresbut somehow "normality" set in when I got requests to spin yarns that were 12ply, then 8ply then 4ply and last but not least the fans of lace got to me....spinning laceweight is hard work and takes a long time and somehow the art yarns like the nip'n'tuck yarns (slubby singles) and the art yarns with all bits and pieces were lost...but...not for long!
I love spinning coils, beehives, turkish knots, slubbies and experimenting with all kinds of "weird"stuff. the good thing about art yarn is that you can make a project so absolutely special by just adding a little bit and using something that is unique and stands out like an art yarn is by far the most creative juice you can imagine: it gets the blood flowing :)
Apart from the art yarns I have been spinning lots for the hand knitters guild mini wool show tomorrow at the brunswick town hall. These three tubs are filled with hand spun yarns ! and there are three more tubs filled with art yarns and hand dyed sock yarns and laceweight. Why oh why am I tired and my arm is almost falling off? lol
Tubs overflowing with hand spun for the show !
Paul will be filling the car up with all these goodies tonight together with all the hand dyed tops and bunny fibres :) who needs airbags when you have a car filled with fibre eh? lol
Yesterday was a fun day : another bunny spin in and thank you all for coming: there was a lot of bunny cuddling and hugging of yarns and fibres and a lot of chatting ;-)
