yet another long while

sigh. i wish i had the time and energy to post every week. I lurk online and yet I'm too lazy to take pics of my new ventures, but yet I visit all my frequent blogs EVERY DAY.

how lame is that?

Well today I ventured back online- to post a few new babies from this weekend. I spent an eventful Friday dyeing some roving, and spun a bit of it, although I haven't had a chance to post them on etsy. I'm thinking about knitting them into a scarf and selling that instead.

Here they are: in all of their glory (aka bathroom lighting at 11:39pm).

See these lovely little hearts? I found a pic of someone who knit these up on flickr. You can find the pattern here. Check out her other patterns too- the little gun and the hippo are oh too cute. I sent her an email and I think that there are way too many "adorable's" in it. hah.

This is one of my first successful forays into the world of superwash yarn. I dyed this up the same time I dyed my roving for spinning, but this yarn took up the dye incredibly well. I see more of this lovely stuff in the future!

These are handspun hand dyed merino wool roving, spun in a bulky thick and thin yarn. The purple one is plied with a magenta silk thread, and the grey/blue one is plied with a white silk thread. Yardage still unknown.

That's it for now!
