What I did this summer

If you remember this post  Go look at it now before you look at the rest of the post.  You'll see over 160 carded batts. I spent the summer spinning them all and here are results.

This is my kitchen table with all the skeins of yarn I spun.  I watched TV and movies while doing all these skeins.

This is a closer view of some of the colors. Now I know the question will be, what are you going to do with all of that yarn. I will pull the colors that have several skeins and save them for another project. With the rest I will weave a blanket.

As you can see I have a lot of blues, greens and purples but there are also gold, peaches and pinks.

and some neutrals too. I think I have at least a little bit of most of the colors out there. I think this will make a fantastic blanket.


  1. Wow, Kate! Seeing them all together on the table looks fantastic. The colors are beautiful. That will be a one-of-a-kind blanket....warm and gorgeous.

  2. Oh my... Looks like a "rainbow" of fuzzy goodness! :]
    You sure were busy over the summer, love it!!
    Take care <3

  3. Wow, that's alot of hard work and beautiful yarn! I can't wait to see the weaved blanket!
    Hugs and blessings.

  4. Wowzers! Look at it all! You've been a busy woman. The colors are so beautiful!

  5. Lovely ! Sure to make a beautiful beautiful blanket. And to see it from yarn to blanket will be a great thing too !
    Happy Monday !

  6. Like Janet...WOW! You have been a busy for sure. It is all so beautiful.Now the mistery is....What are you going to make? It's good to be back...Hugs, mary

  7. Kate, since I do not sew, knit, crochet or weave, I have no clue what exactly you did to make those ordinary looking threadballs into these fluffy yarns, but knowing your talents, I am confident it will continue to evolve into a thing of beauty. xoxo

  8. Wow you sure have been busy. Do you have lots of multi-coloured sheep round your parts then?
