Easter Egg Handspun Yarn with Flowers


I finished this bright little number today - looks like I'm in a happy mood, which I'm not as I'm feeling quite grumpy. Don't know why - I must have used up all my festive spirit & I think the heat is getting to me - its so hot here in Auckland right now!

This merino roving was dyed by the fiber artist TheArtAtEaglesFind on Etsy - I love her work, its gorgeous & I'm a big fan.

This yarn has beehives, supercoils & flowers spun in and is plyed with a laceweight black yarn.

I am actually in the middle of making a big colourful piece of jewellery with optic fibers, LEDs & touch sensors in it. Maybe if I get the circuit debugged soon (....its not quite working yet!) I can show it soon. Just to prove that I'm not just stuck in a spinning yarn frenzy....

Hmm, would knitting some Goth yarn with spiders and centipedes put you in a good mood?

Well, you know, when I serve my art instead of my mood at least I have the satisfaction...hope you do too.

Thank you Yvette!

Susan - I do too. I think it would be most amusing to make some yarn with spiders & bugs as it would totally freak out my kiddies!

And what is wrong with being stuck in a spinning yarn frenzy?

Grump on girl.
