tour de fleece 2022

You are four days into tour de fleece, and you find you can”t spend every moment in front of your wheel.

I want to hurry and get this post out to you so it gets right to the point. Try spinning with a support spindle as a passenger in a car or waiting for an appointment. I love support spindles because you don’t have to carry anything heavy or bulky. You also don’t have to stand to allow room for the spindle to fall as you spin the fibre.

Here is a free video you can download and start watching right now.

Happy spinning,


2022 Advent Fibre Bits Club

They are back for the third year in a row. Go to this link and pre-order one now; I have a limited amount available.

Perhaps you don’t know what advent fibre bits are all about. From December 1st to Dec 12th, you will open one package every day. They are packages that contain 20g of fibre and a little treat as well. You get to pick your yarn; this year, I have Polwarth, BFL, and Cheviot available. The colours I pick this year will centre around a theme, so you could make a large skein or spin each bundle individually into mini-skeins.

Go to my Instagram account (bottom of the website) and look up hashtag #adventfibrebits for previous year’s photos.

Oh, wait. I want to mention that you don’t have to wait to receive my hand-dyed fibre bits till December. You can be a part of my monthly subscription and order a 112g braid of fibre today. You can also join in on the fun here.

Happy spinning!


Half Way There!

Can you believe it?!

We are almost halfway through 2022 and I need to…

gather up all my current projects and make a plan to get them DONE! Currently, I have on the go these older projects that I started in 2022:

Budding Vines Cowl using my organic sock yarn (dyed with botanical dyes).

On A Quest For Fibre – Organic Sock Yarn Base Dyed With Botanical Dyes

Next up are my mittens by Code Of Mittens. I am using Drops Design Flora in colours dark grey (05) and white (02).

Mini skein bundles are one of my favourites; I find them so versatile. Currently, I am using some in the Triangulum Blanket.

So there you go; you now know what I need to concentrate on. ☺️

Oh, but wait, check back next week to see my spinning projects. This dyed fibre is my latest addition to my stash, and after posting an idea on Instagram, I’ll be starting the idea next week.
