And her name is Jacey Boggs. I think she is smart and also pretty.
She came over, cause I invited her, and she taught us how to make really pretty yarns. Friday, we had six hours of corespinning in her class called Soft Core Spinning.
Saturday was Boucle all day. Those yarns above are Jacey's.
These are her boucle swatches.
This is some discarded boucle from a disgruntled student...it got better.
Boucle in progress a la Jillian Moreno of Spinning Tuesdays on the Knitty Blog and Knittyspin editor extraodinaire. (if you didn't know about Knittyspin you aren't spending enough time with Knitty)
This is my boucle. the one on the right was my first yarn of the day. I got better and learned what it really takes to get those little circles.
Sunday was cables and crepes. I worked all day really hard and forgot to take photos. But here are some sample yarns I made in different thicknesses.
I made this one too. It was not right but I think it's pretty anyway. I needed more twist in my singles.
At the end we made some supercoils and plied them. It's kind of a crepe. I'm making a necklace and bracelet from these. I show ya when I'm done. I've already been to the beads store.
and a peacock
some cutie patootie donkeys
and a little closer spotted donkey. So cute.
