My First Art Yarn











I had a lot of fun making these crazy coils. Miah calls it a lovely mess. :)

I also spun up this rainbow in Navajo 3-ply to keep the colors together.


And this is from last week - a skein of angora from Havva.




These will all be in the etsy shop tomorrow morning.

  2. Gorgeous! I love your rainbow yarn, planning to do some like that soon here ... once I get to dyeing some first. The angora looks very soft and squishy!

    Love your coils - never tried it but it looks fun, I have a friend who can spin the most amazing coil art yarns. Must try it one day x

  6. That yarn is so beautiful!
    Do you use Charlotte Mason? I'm very interested in using it next year and saw you had a button.

  7. Amy, I've read some Charlotte mason books and use some of the principles. We do living books for history and science, do nature study, and use copywork, narration, and dictation. I think all these things are helpful and enjoyable. But I'm not strict about it. I read about a lot of different schooling methods and pick and choose from what I like of each.

  9. Yes, each so very beautiful. How I love to see pictures of handspun. They are works of art and heartwarming. The time and care and heart that has gone into creating each skien.

  10. Wow, I am amazed. I love the hand painted owls you made (and that chick is so cute too!!!) You are very talented- I hope your shop does well.

    Your corn doll looks like fun, we will have to give that a try sometime...I'll tuck your idea away for corn season ;-)
