I am lucky enough to have incredibly talented (as well as fun) fiber friends. Two of them are practically neighbors (well they live Upstate ;) Cal of Hodge Podge Farm and Cris of Into the Whirled. We are all members of our local spinning guild & at a long ago meeting realized we all had Etsy shops - a threeway friendship was born. We are often discussing techniques & supplies, sharing success, lots of laughs & sometimes frustrations.
Over beers or maybe it was coffee and idea was hatched...
Since we all specialize in a different but, related part of the fiber arts what if via bloggin we followed a humble 4oz of top through each of our fingers.
Well Cris is the Dyer so her piece needs to be first. Read all about her process & see what I got to work with next here
^ That's a little preview. Even though I usually dye my own top I loved reading about her process, it is completely different than mine! It is a luxury for me to just get to spin - no mixing colors or waiting for the wool to dry.
Well, I've got the lovely top she prepared in my hands now and a perfect snow day to spin in front of the fireplace. And I better get spinning too, beacause once I'm finished it's off to Cal for her to crochet some marvelous creation with!
