Knotty and gnarly...I'm aiming for something wild, colourful and primitive. This is some of my hand dyed rovings, which I've spun to a medium to thick single, leaving a few coils, chunks and blobs....then I have subjected them to all manner of fibre no-no's and abuse. They have be spun around my head, pummelled, plunged, banged, berated, agitated...I think you get the picture. hehe! The result? Something crossed between Mad Max and Martha.
Here is a little update on Sheepychic "wizz-bang" and how it looks spun up to a fun single...I'm holding onto this and knitting it with some white into some Sheepychic stubbie holders / water bottle sleeves. I've had an order for a bottle sleeve with a shoulder strap for walking....I'll keep you posted. I'll figure out the pattern and post my progress. I'll knit up a couple for sale.
Here is a picture of a Sheepychic stubbie holder (it is just here with a glass inside...works well too...) which I knitted up for a gal-pal Mandie. They are available for $15...you'll have to email me to place an order at firstname.lastname@example.org until Sheepychic shop is open.
All the best, and thanks for logging into Sheepychic bloggings. Regards, Ruth...xoxox
On a little sad end note can you believe we are carefully rearing 6 little 3.5 week old pet mice...Sharna moved to the big mouse house in the sky on that terrible hot day we had recently. She was very old for a mouse but we are all so sad...and sad for her babies. I don't know if they'll be okay but B and I are trying our best to help them. We are feeding them crushed up oats and dipping their tiny front paws in milk every hour or two. They all sit there licking off their paws....I don't know what else to do....but they all seem well. It is amazing how a little mouse can take a little place in your heart.... Sharna charmed me so.
