Spinning on my kiwi

This is my progress with spinning on my Kiwi. The muli-colored bobbin is my 1st time spinning a whole bobbin full. Then last night I sat down again and spun up some more. It is getting where it actually looks like yarn! I do plan on making up swatches of each of these so I can see my progress as I spin more.

corridale batt for spinning

I went to Allyn knit shop today to pick out some wool to spin. This picture does not quite show all the colors as they are but it was the best out of 4 pictures.
It goes from a light cream to reddish brown to some brown in it. I felt like I got a pretty good deal on it. Lois told me that if I want more after I spin this up she has more for me ;)
I also met up with Robin who lives out that way. I think she has some socks in her future LOL
More later when I get some of it spun up.

Easter bunny for Raidan

I am making my grand daughter Raidan Aiko the amigurumi bunny for Easter. This is what I have so far. The head, I am using sugar & cream pink varigated yarn. I am thinking of making the legs, arms and ears in pink then use some fuzzy white yarn I have for the tail. I can't just follow the directions noooooo I gotta tweak it some so it looks different.

Whisper bunny

Updated picture 1/20

Whisper is our newest bunny from Kim at Blessed farm in Tahuya, Wa
She is a blue eye english angora at 4 month old she is a beautiful girl.
She is very sweet to groom as she just lets me do what needs to be done.
She loves to be petted as she nudges my hand to let me know it is time to be petted.
I am looking forward to the day that we breed her.

A new year

Happy new years, I hope everyone had a great holiday season

I wanted to share some things that my Mom sent in her package to us for Christmas.

The crochet bear and doll were made for my Sister by my Grandmother. My Mom had saved them so she sent them for Raidan to have. Mom saved a few of the things that Grandma made for us and as Raiden grows older she is going to send them to her.
So for my 1st project of the year in the tradition of my Grandmother I want to make a crochet animal for Raidan. Not sure what yet........if any one has any ideas let me know.
