Lily peacock! Struttin her stuff!

For evigheter siden var det en spinalong i ravelrygruppa til Spunky Eclectic. Det var en comboalong, der man skulle spinne to eller flere forskjellige innfarginger sammen.
Den gangen spant jeg disse to

og fikk dette garnet.

Ennå så hadde jeg 2 fletter av hver farge igjen og jeg likte så godt hvordan dette garnet ble at jeg har spunnet og tvunnet de også. Resultater er at jeg nå har 1295 meter med garn i sport/DK weight :) Nok til en jakke!

Golden Fleece – Module 4, the meeting with the goddess.

In this module we are to work with whats define us as the person we are. Sort of our own love story.

When it comes to me, there are some things that seem to show up over and over and over again in my life.
#1 challenges (some described in previous module posts)
#2 Seeing the humor in the strangest situations and at the strangest times.
#3 Creativity and new ideas when it comes to crafting.

Some experiences also seem to repeat for me
#1 People often feel threatned because of the self-confidence I have and that I am not afraid to speak my mind.
#2 I often take on more tasks than I should at work
#3 I get really excited when new things engage or intrigue me!

Things I feel the need to change about my self
#1 I should try to exercize more, and loose weight = Health benefits!
#2 I need to learn to keep my mouth shut when I really should
#3 I need to stop holding grudges

I have written several things about myself in the previous modules, the stuff that challenge me, the stuff that defines me and the things that inspire me. That is my story!
Now where would I be without my story? – I would be dead (and I am not kidding). The things I have lived through and experienced has made me who I am both as a person and as a creative soul, and I would not change anything.

The things I have experienced is not who I am, but they have shaped me into who I am. I know I can be perceived as a horrible and strange person to many, but those who really know me knows that I always stribe to be a better person and that I have a heart of gold. I am who I am, for good – better and worse.

I have reached all the goals I have set for myself this far (many are very personal and I don’t feel like sharing them on the blog). I have 2 lovely children, and a wonderful man who loves me and appreciates all my quirks. I have a good education and a decent job making the day better for others.

Going through my previous module posts and writing this post I had to take a step back to the fact that I am good enough just the way I am, so that will be reflected in my yarn. Keeping it simple and doing something I love.

The fiber I have chosen to work with is Polwarth, I love Polwarth. If I would only be able to spin one type of wool for the rest of my life… this would be it!
The colors are dark, black with flecks of greens and purples, top dyed by Lindey at the first draft (amazing dyer btw!).
I am spinning this top fine, because that is what I do when I am in autopilot mode, just spinning for the meditation of it.
And for the little extra I will be adding gold beads while navajoplying it to represent all my «golden» moments!

Superjumbo!

Ja, akkurat… Superjumbo! Det er det nye ekstrautstyret til majacraftrokkene, kjøpt hos Spinnvilt selvfølgelig!

Jeg kjøpte rokkehode med en spole til Aurarokken min og alle hjerter fryder seg! Ihvertfall mitt! Disse spolene tar 5 ganger så mye som de vanlige jumbospolene! De vanlige jumbospolene tar volummessig 1 liter innhold, mens superjumboen tar 5!!!

I praksis betyr det at jeg kan spinne større og tykkere garn uten å måtte fordele det på flere spoler.

Rokken ser nesten fryktinngytende ut med dette nye settet på!

Og når den var på så var det bare å leke seg!
Her er innholdet fra flere jumbospoler tvinnet inn på superjumboen
