As 2010 comes to a close I am feeling thankful. Our family has settled back into Seattle smoothly. My husband and I are both employed. (That's something to be thankful for these days.) Although I am exhausted from my job, I love it very much and I'm ready for what 2011 brings my way. After my birthday and Christmas this month I have an abundance of fiber and fiber supplies to work with in the coming year. This inventory consists of the two whole fleece above (Christmas present from my husband) plus a Cotswold fleece (birthday present from my co-worker). I have mounds of roving to spin. I have a long list of knitting projects that I'd love to do. Now I just need some free time to dive into all of this fiber.

Happy New Year!

Dyed Roving

There's been a lot of dyeing going on at my place. I've dyed about 4 lbs of various roving with the intent to open up an Etsy shop. Yes, I'm jumping on the Etsy band wagon. I'm working on photographing the roving in a way that reflect the actual colors. I've tried taking the photos inside, outside, with a flash, and without. So far I haven't gotten it quite right, but I'll try again tomorrow. Above is a photo of one of the piles of roving. I have to decide what to sell and what to spin myself.

A Brown, Yellow, and White Skein

The Thanksgiving roving has been spun up. I doubt if I'd ever use this color combo again. A little too dull for me.
