I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Bamboo with a Twist

BambooTwist (1)
My work for today is done. I was able to work with this roving and after plying the bamboo, I guess I would  not mind giving it another try another day. My friend Naomi suggested to put hand lotion on my hands before spinning, so I will have to try that with some more roving in the future. I am definitely all for spinning wooboo or wool-bamboo blend, which should be easy to draft and spin.  Here is the 129 yards with 150 grams of beautiful bamboo.  Right now the twist is getting set in some very hot water. I  like the tweed look of this baby .  One thing is for sure, this yarn is very strong! Thanks for stopping by!
