OFFF deals, Pinot Noir Fingerless Gloves, ETSY and yarns and more!

My OFFF buys:
baby alpaca neck hair, 2 8oz naturale Fantasy Fiber rovings, 1 Fantasy Fiber mystery batt, 1 oz angora rabbit fur, 10 oz mohair locks half dark grey half red multi, 4 oz Pico Accuardi merino, 4 braids of Knitted Wit - 2 corriedale, 1 shetland, 1 merino/bamboo, 8 oz flax, 1 lb merino, 1 lb 70/30 merino/alpaca SW in Navy, 14 oz of 40/60 merino/tencel in shiny black. All great deals, and I had fun! My non-photoed finds, Fogwash Soap, and 3 jars of Jaquard acid dye for $4 each.

My toe up, short row heel socks, out of Bernat Sox Camouflage. I have about 2" more done now.

Spunky Ecclectic BFL in Faded Flowers I got as a doorprize at WWSIP Day, spun up! I love it.

Upstream Alpacas in Pinot Noir I bought at WWSIP and spun the next day. I knit it into fingerless gloves by a week later, shown in a coming photo!

After WWSIP I dyed with my mom and sister, and this is my roving. KnitPicks Wool of the Andes roving dyed with KoolAid and Wiltons cake dye and vinegar, set using the microwave.

My BILs Christmas present, yarn dyed by me and knit up, it is KnitPicks Swish bulky. Hope he doesn't read my blog...

My Pinot Noir fingerless gloves!

The Naturale roving in one of two skeins so far. I still have 9-10 oz left, but have gotten 92 yards so far!

The Knitted Wit Thing 1 Corriedale in a superbulky 2-ply. 4oz, 38 yds, and fun! Going on my ETSY when it dries!

Close up

The roving I dyed all spun up! Bulky single. Going to be a cowl for a friend I think.

So I mentioned putting a yarn on my ETSY, I am going to give ETSY another go, thus the volume of fiber bought at OFFF. Wish me luck!
