The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

Tour de Fleece prep

Preparing to do T de F I have been working on starting with empty bobbins on all the wheels that I plan to use.
The Charkha with its empty spindles, and the yellow and green cotton from a dying exchange of plant fibers of a few years ago. This was dyed by Stashymama.  
 Here are some of the things I finished off in the last few days this is 2, 2-plied skeins of the Shetland experiment.  And a storage bobbin of Garnet Merino Silk, this will be the first fiber to be spun on the Lendrum to finish up the other half.
 The last of the already spun garnet. I am in the middle of winding it off to a storage bobbin here, it is sitting because the battery in the screwdriver gave out and it is recharging,
 More of the Shetland dye experiment, and the first thing up on the Schacht matchless.
 Empty bobbin on the CPW which will be continuing the white Romney,

The remaining Garnet Merino/Silk.

So ready, set, GO!
