Buzz, Buzz, Buzz...

... Busy little Bee!! Apologies for the photo heavy post that follows!



Well my spinning wheel has been keeping me busy lately and the garden has been calling too. Poor neglected knitting - Yeah playing with fibres!!

Been busy chucking various fibres and bits at the drum carder and then having fun with the results, plying with whatever was to hand (namely sewing thread) and 'boufant boucle'ing the yarn - definitely fun after spinning 75g of Merino silk blend and producing 256m!


Primula Vialii

Aquilegia 'Norah Barlow'


Look at those yummy swirls of snipped silk threads!


Octopus and Jellyfish boucle tendrils!



More Jellyfish tendrils of boucle coils - full of sparkle and glitz!




Finest yarn I've ever spun - 256m approx from 75g of Merino/Silk blend!
