Saturday Show and Tell!  

Hello darlings! I hope your weekend is treating you well thus far.
Yesterday as I was spinning I had an idea for my next yarn and ran to the studio to make the batts.
I present to you Kitchen Sink Pink:

Why kitchen sink? Because this baby has tons of stuff in it! It's made of merino, bamboo, mohair, 2 different shades of pink icicle and silk noil. The silk noil and mohair add some fun texture and I can't wait to see how it spins up!


Till next time,
Redd

Super Cuteness!  

Check out this super cute ring I bought on Etsy!


A few weeks ago I saw this on the front page of Etsy by I'm Your Present. I simply HAD to have it. When it arrived, it was nicely packaged and she included candy. Who doesn't love candy?
My son especially loves this ring. The first day I wore it he kept kissing and hugging it. I felt like the Godfather lol.

Show and Tell  

With my income tax refund (okay, Paul's income tax refund) I got an Ashford drum carder and jumbo flyer for my spinning wheel. What great purchases those were! The first batt I made on my carder was this:

It's a mix of polworth from Crafty Puppy Lover, milk fibre from Wabi Sabi and a red firestar from Wind Rose Studio.
I spun it and plied it on my fancy new flyer and now I have this totally awesome, fun yarn!



Now I get to figure out what I'm going to make with this because I love it too much to sell.

Treasury Tuesday - Attack of The Craft  

So if you've been paying attention, most Tuesdays I do Treasury Tuesdays here on the blog. I always feature people from the CraftAnon Team. But what is the CraftAnon Team? We are a bunch of super awesome folks from Attack of the Craft.
Attack of the Craft is a web forum where awesome crafters and lovers of awesome crafters mingle together. We don't just talk about crafts either. You can share recipes, makeup tips, even vent about your day. They are an awesome group of friends that I am really glad that I found.
So today's treasury theme is hearts, because I'm mushy that way :P

Soper Creek Yarn Challenge!  

So if you may or may not remember that last year I took part in The Soper Creek Yarn Challenge. This year I did it again!

I decided to up my game this year and make fair isle mittens. They're finished and dropped off. I'm really proud of how they turned out!


The navy blue looking wool is actually purple.
If you live in Bowmanville or the surrounding area, voting starts on March 24 till April 1. Go to Soper Creek Yarn and vote for my mittens!

Nerd Wars Polytech  

So one of the challenges this month was Polytech. We had to use more than one skill to make something awesome.

First, I took some yellow roving:

Then I spun it into wool:
Then I crocheted that into a star:

Then I needle-felted it and added black for eyes:
Attached a pin-back:


And had an awesome Invincibility Mario Star Brooch!
Woo!

Nerd Wars!  

One of the challenges this month is Capillary Action.
\For those of you who are like WTF?
"Capillary action is responsible for moving groundwater from wet areas of the soil to dry areas, creating that pesky meniscus when measuring liquids for cooking or science projects, and what Bounty tries to maximize to be the quicker picker upper. It is the ability of liquid to flow against gravity. It is one of the qualities that makes water a unique compound."
I made a Snow Pea Shooter from the amazing Plants vs. Zombies!

Yoshi Mittens  

My Yoshi Mittens are all done!

I'll be bringing them by Soper Creek Yarn on Wednesday. They collect mittens for the local woman's shelter. I decided to make them for kids, since what kid wouldn't love to have fun dino mittens?

Nebulus  

For my next Nerd Wars Challenge, nebulas, I have spun this!


I blended black alpaca, blue, pink and purple merino and white firestar on my hackle and then spun it up. I love the way it looks and sparkles!
