Carding, gardening, and Phat Fiber! Oh MY!

As mentioned yesterday I went to a pretty amazing garage sale with lots of fiber & yarns. I got several pounds worth of dyed fiber and yarns for under $50! I immediately got to hand carding the luscious dyed raw wool and I can't wait to start spinning it (though I still have a lot of carding to go!). These aren't the best pics (it is overcast and kind of gloomy today) The first is before, the second the after - the white is some angora that I have been carding in.

I am a bit late but here are some progress pictures from the garden. I have columbine, forget-me-nots, and poppy's blooming with many more getting close! I still have lots of weeding to do - but am hoping to get to that maybe sometime tomorrow! The lawn was mowed by the hubbs including the newly planted grass and I think it is to the point of being ready to play on so I am sure I will be out there lots with the boys this week.

Last but not least Phat Fiber June's boxes go on sale today!!! I am doing my Phat Fiber Day sale again as well, offering 20% off everything in the shop for today only!!


  1. Your forget-me-nots are beautiful! I learned in my wildflower class that there are also pink forget-me-nots....who knew!?! I would love to get my hands on some of those. Your fiber looks awesome!

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with the fiber you picked up. I love messin' around in a garden, but I don't have the space where I am now. I'm thinking of doing some container items in my kitchen window :)

  3. Your forget-me-nots are quite lovely! And I'm impressed with the fiber as well!
