Random thoughts of a fiber enthusiast - mostly fiber related, sometimes coherent

Month: February 2015

New Project


More Yarn


I finally got around to winding these off of the bobbins. I don’t remember where I purchased the fiber. I think it is Crown Mountain Fibers. I’ve lost the tag so I don’t know what the color way is either.


  • superwash merino
  • spun & plied on Watson Marie
  • chain plied
  • 250 grams
  • 2 skeins, 884 yards
  • 1,604 ypp

Maybe another vest?

More Silk



  • Half Bombyx Silk Brick from Northeast Fiber Arts Center
  • Spindle spun; plied on Matchless with 21:1 flyer
  • 2-ply
  • 55 grams
  • 652 yards
  • 5,361 ypp

Not quite the yardage of the other half brick.
