Warm and Wild Yarns

Sorry its been awhile since eI have posted. As you can see by the pictures I have been busy. I finished a sweater ,start to finish. I also revised the purse pattern finished two more sock patterns and participated in the semi-annual Spinners Flock Fleece Fair in Chelsea, MI.
I am hoping to do more patterns soon with a new program that is on its way.
I have a few deadlines for design submissions coming fast so need to get to work again.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment or two. Have a Great Day Knitting.

This is the sport, fingering and lace weight alpaca yarn I have spun in the last couple months. Posted by Picasa

This is the sweater that I knit for russell(other half). I spun the yarn and knit the sweater in 1 1/2 weeks. The only reason it took that long is I had it half done and had to rip it out. The importance of measuring gauge correctly. Posted by Picasa

This is some of the handspun I have in the shop for sale. Posted by Picasa

Warm and Wild Yarns

Pictures of a couple new designs that still need a little refinement. I have been busy with the shop and getting wool gathered up to have it processed for spinning. I have some wonderfully soft Alpaca blends and a couple pure Alpaca batches. I have a batch of 50/50 angora wool and 50/50 wool Mohair coming back in the next week. i am anxiously waiting to see how they come out. Getting things around to teach a class on Knitting a basic sock. The owner of the newest yarn shop in the area has asked me to teach the class. I love doing this as it is free advertising for my shop. I son't carry the same yarns as the other shops in the area and have a very loyal clientel and I also offer custon spinning and custom dying for my customers. I wish the new shop owner well but have my doubts whether she will last long as she is trying to make a go of it carrying the same yarn as the big chain stores in the area.
Have a Great night Knitting.
