Rocking Circle P

Rocking Circle P is my small farm in Northeastern rural Utah. We're a small fruit, nut and fiber farm.

Finally finished these socks. Not a bad fit either......a little long in the toe......but they are not for me.

The New Spin

Here's a new spin for me and I like it! Guanaco.....sounds scary and evil, but it is soft and devine. Again, some fiber that my Sister Bonnie sent to have me spin for her. This fiber is from Village Spinning & Weaving Shop, in Solvang California. Cool little town to visit too. This fiber is soft as butter, spins fine as frogs hair, (for me anyway, I haven't put a count on it, but it resembles thread), and I love the way it drafts. Just hold on to it and it makes the yarn, Ok.... maybe not quite that easy, but it is nice stuff to spin. I think easier than the Cashmere was for me. The fibers seem to be longer and draft out together better.

Everyone Knitting?

With Christmas just around the corner, I imagine everyone is busy, with clicking needles of some sort. These are not a Christmas present, but a Friendship present. The socks are coming along nicely...... however see the two wooden DPN's..... there were five in this set. That dang little dog of mine likes my wooden needles and chewed up the third one. I've switched to two circular metal needles, but the yarn does slip easier. But a girls got to do what a girls got to do.

Spinning is so much cheaper than therapy.....don't you agree.

Here is what I am working on, (left) 2 ozs of Freckles (alpaca) for Sister Bonnie and (below)eventually 3 or 4 ozs of Bluefaced Leicester for a winter project I have in mind.

Finished 4 ozs of Dark Winter Nights

Here is a finished navajo ply on that gorgeous fiber. It's leaving in the mail, so I thought I better get it on the ole blog.
