Made a bunch of batts today, all really saturated color. Light was kind of weird when I took the pictures, but here they are. They’re for sale at And this was the January Cuckoo for Cuckoobatts club batt. Mostly merino, a little hand-dyed medium wool, and glossy black mohair.

Oh Christmas wool, oh Christmas wool!

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Okay, so my mom didn’t just magically guess; I gave her a big list of options. Here’s what she picked out and got me for Christmas! Funky Caroline tops: soy silk, BFL (got 2 of these) and alpaca! Yum. Loop batts (2)! Silky. Mustache Rides wool top! Those blue spots are a lot bluer in […]

Snow Day!

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

We were supposed to drive to Austin today, but the weather reports (blowing snow advisory) along the first 5 hrs of the route were very discouraging, so we decided to wait until tomorrow. It wasn’t bad this morning, so we thought about going ahead with it, but the snow just hit and man, am I […]

Yarn crisis + new batts

Monday, November 26th, 2007

As you can see, I’m definitely lacking the necessary yarn to finish this sweater. I’m hoping Vera can spin me up some more. Otherwise, I’ll need to spin something suitable for contrasty trim. I’ve got several rovings that might be good candidates, but a 2-ply sport isn’t my typical yarn. I’m more a 2-ply worsted-to-bulky […]

Spinster’s Club + New Batts (fiber porn) + Club Crochet

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Okay, I don’t know if that’s our official name, but it’s the one I’m using. Year’s ago, I got a “Spinsters’ Club 1932” mug at an estate sale (and later kept coming across them, but for some reason never bought more, very unlike me), and I just loved the name. And now I’m two kinds […]
