I can't believe how gorgeous this skein of yarn turned out! I have been playing with a new dyeing method...look for a tutorial soon. This is what you can produce.

This is a wool/silk blend that i spun up and plied and then dyed it. I LOVE how it turned out. At first, as i was dyeing it, I wondered, but now seeing it dry--I am amazed. The sheen is amazing. The colors are gorgeous. MMMMM...Don't know what i'm making, but i'm keeping this yarn.

I also dyed some beautiful sock yarn using the same dyeing method. I LOVE it.

I think I've figured out what to call my spinning zine. I'm thinking I'll call it "Totally Twisted" It will include spinning, dyeing and crafting with handspun. I'm pretty excited. What do you think?

Absolutely love the way these two newest skeins you have dyed came out. Beautiful.

The Zine name is also great. Fits perfectly with the craft/skill of spinning.

Looking forward to your newest tutorials.

Thanks for all of your ideas.
