Spinning lock yarn is so fun!  There are so many different ways to spin lock yarn.  You can start with a base of wool and add the locks to that as you go.  Or you can only spin locks and/or add other spin in materials as well.  If the goal was for us all to spin a lock yarn..I think they would all be different and beautiful.  Creating unique beauty is so soothing to my soul.  I wish that on everyone! Here’s a few pics of some of my latest lock dyeing adventures. 🙂

These are English Leicester locks from Namaste Farms 🙂

The sun was shining here, just like it was really trying to be spring!  The temps are warming slowly, and the mating pair of robins in our front yarn yard, are back!  I do think spring is really coming if we are all lucky!  So to celebrate I am hosting another handspun yarn give away on my facebook page.  You do pay for the shipping but I’ll throw in the skein for free! The yarn is a fun colored superwash merino wool with some soft sweet lavender and peach and ivory just in time for spring.  I’m also including the wool roses in this one!  Don’t forget to stop by and check out the handspun yarn kits I listed in my Etsy shop today too!  I hope you are enjoying some other kind of weather besides snow and getting to watch  your favorite spring birds arrive too!  🙂

Just dropping in to give you a handspun yarn kit update!  The fun continues!  The latest one I made from my Sugar Baby colorway on merino/tencel fiber – and if I do say so myself, the entire kit is exquisite!  I’ve added some fabric for some leaves and color coordinated novelty yarns.  Someone asked me the other day if I thought these would be appropriate for beginner’s.  And I would say yes, if you  know your pattern and are past the point of having to rip out your stitches to correct too many mistakes.  And yes because a beginner can purchase the kit and use it when they gain confidence in their work.  Maybe by Tuesday?  (depends on the dedication and ability to practice).   I think it’s perfectly fine to have inspiration around you!  The beauty of the kit and it’s possibilities are a great motivation!  And there are so many project  possibilities!  I am anxious to get to see the pics from people that are working them up.   However they choose to play with them!   Make a gorgeous one of a kind cowl!  Make a one of a kind  scarf!  It’s the perfect project bundle to get you thru some of this fierce winter weather we are all getting to enjoy!  The kits would also make a sweet gift for the fiber person in your circle!
