Introducing an Excited Participant


I think this is a great idea! Last September, I took a spindling class from Elizabeth Dailey, of Greensleeves Spindles, and she encouraged us to 'spin with intention'. Since that time, I have been thinking about potential projects, but have been finishing up the one and two ounce bumps of various fibers I had collected at the three fiber festivals I was lucky enough to attend over the summer. I started working on the Larger Than Life Bag as a way to combine those various handspuns... these are some of the seven squares I have done to date.
However, I would like to spin enough yarn for a shawl, so will be spending some time in the next week determining what weight, how much fiber I need (and if I have enough in my stash already), and what pattern. I look forward to seeing everyone's work as we all progress together. If you want to learn more about me, visit my blog, A View From Sierra County.

Your squares are beautiful! What a wonderful way to use up some of those small amounts of handpun.

I look forward to seeing what you decide on as far as fiber and pattern is concerned for your project with this group.

Hey those colors are beautiful! I didn't even think about making granny squares out of all my remnants. I just made a bunch of coasters. Now I have more coasters than I do cups.

Welcome to Spun Stitches!
