What ever will she do with this Lord of the Rings Fleece? Maybe she will send us photos of whatever she creates….hint, hint!!
I have also spun up the lovely fiber batts that I posted photos of short while ago and working on some new fiber batts. I am going to weave a sweater coat that will be more fitted from these lovely batts filled with color and texture. I will post more photos as I get more of it done.
Charlie, my husband, made me a wooden crochet hook that is about 38 mm. It is a foot long and 1.5 inches in diameter. I also ordered a couple of other large jumbo hooks, 17mm and 22 mm, in bamboo and am awaiting their arrival. With these big hooks, I plan on making even more caps, hats, scarves, ponchos, shawls and other assorted clothing from large art yarns.
Stay tuned for more fun, fiber and dazzling color here at Alba Ranch. We hope to have the llama home here on the ranch in the next couple of weeks, so we will include photos of the llamas once we bring them home.
There are many new Art Batts and Hand Painted Rovings in the Fiber Shop, along with dyed bamboo, Tussah Silk and Milk for you add in Blings. come Check us out.
