Fibre Friday

We are moving #fiberfriday into a new space this week! I'm really excited to be released from having to have everyone's link up posts in a separate third-party platform. INSTEAD, they will all appear below for your clicking and sharing pleasure. Thank you for sticking with me as I figure this process out!

Each week, we all work on various fibre-related things that we are excited to share with one another. Some share on  Instagram (use #fiberfriday – note the American spelling to keep things simple on Instagram!) but some of us still blog about our fibrey pursuits. It’s a great way to stay motivated, inspired and surrounded by a community of fellow handspinners, knitters and crafters in general! Please keep it fibre-related, friends.
If you’d like to join in, blog and post a photo of your fibre pursuits, link up and share with the rest of the community what you’ve been working on!
This week was heavy on knitting and light on time. The kids were all-consuming this week, which is part and parcel for the course, but exhausting none-the-less. My mom came over on Monday to help out a little lot so that I could get grocery shopping and cooking done to load the freezer with some meals. Needless to say, not a lot of spinning or knitting got done. Some weeks are like that!
The little bit of time I did have, I furiously worked in my Featherweight Cardigan and I am so excited that tonight (I’m writing this on Thursday night so last night for you) over dinner, I cast off! And wove in the ends during bath time. It’s currently out on the front stoop basking in the glorious sunshine and drying while I sift through laundry to attempt to catch up on housekeeping duties (which is never going to actually happen but a girl can dream!).
I also had a chance to do a wee bit of dyeing this week and I’m really excited with how this turned out. At first, I was really disappointed but it grew on me as the week has passed. I particularly like the coral-red which is not a colour I wear at all but I think I’m going to really enjoy spinning it!
