Well I can't say it was the easiest thing to spin or the most enjoyable, it gets knots very easy and needs alot of work. It tends to want to do its own thing. I like control! Anyway here it is on the Bobbin as a single

and here its is all finished SOFT SILKY AND LOVELY I am really pleased. What do you think?

Misi Goodies

Heres some bits I love on Misi

This is by Jen and is just lovely.
Jen not only beads but knits and crochets, she even has some beads for sale. This bracelet has been on my wish list since she listed it. I don't really wear jewellery but this is fab.

Look at this

By Arlia Not only does Arlia flower do jewellery but custom design clothes her dresses are just FAB and you really need to check her out. She uses a combination of textiles to create heavenly items.

Just 2 fab things from my list of goodies.

Well the Banana is ready to spin, I have blended all the colours together you will still be able to see the variation when spun up. Its fab so soft. I have already been in touch to ask about getting more of this fibre its going to have a fab sheen I can see it knitted or crocheted into a lovely scarf. You could even weave it. Or maybe a nice ribbed hat. I am loving it so far. Would love to hear your opinions. Hope to have the first 100g up at the weekend, it does produce alot of waste though fluff all over the house. It will be fine when its spun, I promise.

Banana anyone?

Oh its exciting I have some banana fibre so tonight I started handcarding the stuff. Oh its fluffy messy and very sofy and silky.
I have had to cut the fibre to a managable length then hand card it. I will pop it through the drum carder tomorrow. Heres the pics of the progress so far.
