With spring finally here, I thought it was a good time to have a mini spin event to celebrate the beautiful spring flowers that are happening for so many of us.
I dyed up two different colorways of 2 oz. Polwarth/Silk rovings:
I started using Greener Shades Dyes for the rovings I have been adding to the shop.
Green Shades Dyes are a non-hazardous, non-metal eco friendly acid dye. Good for me, you and the environment. Win-Win.
I also created handcrafted yarn tags to send one with each roving. Hand stamped, watercolor painted, a few other bits and bobs to make it original and pretty. We all want pretty tags to label our finished yarns, yes?
The event runs April 15 – May 1, 2021. Nothing special other than purchasing one of the #springflingminispin2021 rovings, spinning it any way you want and posting a picture of the finished yarn with #springflingminispin2021 on Instagram by May 1, 2021.
I’ll be drawing one name from the completed Instagram posts on May 2, 2021 to receive one #campspin15in21 pack.
Enjoy the zen of this spinning event, sounds of bird song and days of spring!
I know, it’s only March 26th. You are probably squinting your eyes as you look upon this holiday photo and saying to yourself, “Huh, it’s not even Easter, let alone September yet.”
Well, I’m here to say, it’s not too early to start knitting with your handspun yarns for the holidays.
Maybe you want to try a new fiber and only want to commit to an ounce or two. Besides making samples for your breed study sheet, I thought I would point you to a few adorable, low yardage free patterns that you can make as ornaments, gift package add-ons, garland or as an advent.
What a great little project to take with you where ever you may go.
Until next time, spin on…
It’s spring and time to bloom where you are planted!
I’m dying up some mini challenge braids for a #spin15adayminispinevent , #spin15adaspringfling2021 that will run April 15 – May 1, 2021.
More details to follow in the next week!
Until then, spin on…
