Eye Candy for Yarn Lovers!

I have been so busy trying to catch up on my knitting and get some spinning done in the past few weeks. Finally I have finished some yarn that I can list for sale on my Etsy. (I have been hoarding all my other handspun for personal projects, or giving it away to family members to try out)

For anyone interested, you can find me on Ravelry as Lildebi:)

Here is the latest Handspun and Knitting projects currently on needles.

I still have 158 yds of Lace weight mohair to upload that I finished spinning this week. I am using it to knit a wrap pattern of my own design.

I am getting ready for my first Fiber Festival in June, so I am spinning as much as I can right now. I am also making my own drop spindles with polymer clay whorls. I have already made 10 but have kept 2 to use and gave the rest away to family. I will be uploading pics of those as well soon.

I will give you all an update on the Fiber Festival as we get closer to the date in case any of you are close enough to attend!

Happy Knitting (Spinning)!
