The first is 100% alpaca rovings dyed by yours truely. I bought 5 lbs of the combed rovings and need to do something with them as a gal can only spin so much! I am calling this colorway 'Misty Water Lily'. I dyed a small strip I plan to spin into a sample. Then I will be listing the rovings on Ebay or Etsy. I might try Etsy as I have not done that before:)
And here we have one of the Old Shale stitch socks made with the hand dyed yarn I got from Kat in England! I really like how these turned out. I was hoping I would finally get to wear a pair of my own socks, but some one sent me a funky sock exchange sheet. So, I must sigh and part with these cuties once they are done:( Oh well, I am sure she will enjoy them!
Other Fun Facts..................
I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.
I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)
'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
