I have had my wonderful spindle for about a month now and have had a blast teaching myself to use it. I’ve been making my way through the PhatFiber box I purchased last month and am finally happy with some of the outcomes I’ve produced.
I used the dye kits I received from Color Bug Yarns (although I used Kool-Aid packages I bought). The lighter, almost white, is actually a really light green. This was the first time I plyed, and really enjoyed the process.
And this is my latest (and my FAVORITE so far). It’s SW Merino Combed Top in “chocofetti” colorway from Play at Life Fiber Arts. I loved working with this material. It felt almost silky like and was a dream to draft.
I happened to be browsing around on Etsy one day and came across some of the most gorgeous fiber at the Fiber Fancy shop. It was calling to me; luring me in with its beauty and softness. I HAD to have it. But then I encountered having to decide between two lovely colors. I was stuck… lost in a sea of despair. I had no other choice! I knew there was no way I could go on with only one, so I bought both. I am not disappointed!
