Yarn Pr0n

The weekend was not spent entirely pounding the crap out of smelly pulp. There was a trip to Granville Island - specifically, to Maiwa and Diane Sanderson's Weaving Studio. I picked up some beautifully dyed warp ends perfect for Kumihimo braiding. I can see this will be another addictive hobby.

This is some of the merino/silk from Mud River Angora that I picked up at Fibre Fest in April. 50gms at 265m, navajo plied. This stuff was so much fun to spin. I think the blend is 70% merino and 30% silk.

The weekend has been absolutely gorgeous! I love this weather - hot during the day and cool enough at night to sleep. The plants are loving it as well. This is the first time my Apothecary rose has rose hips!


  1. That yarn loks great. Have you visited Vancouver's newest yarn store? , if you're interested.

  2. Gosh, I so love this yarn - it looks totally soft and cozy... Yummy! Looking forward to seeing what you're going to make with it!
