  The silk on the spools (left) was used to tablet-weave an award ribbon for a friend of mine. The blue, white, black, and gold are 40d4x2 organzine; the greens and browns are 40d8 no-twist tram for brocading. The finished ribbon is about 5/8" across, woven at approximately 300 threads per inch. (closeup far right)

    handspun yarn/yarnmuseum.com   I wanted to create something that I would use with a small amount of rough wool. I knitted as much as I had into a small rectangle, used two wooden knitting needles to straighten the top and bottom, and hung it on the wall. As I create more yarn, I tie a small sample loop of the yarn to my wall hanging to track my progress.handspun yarn/yarnmuseum.com

I am a French textile artist and a new drop spindle spinner. This yarn is all my work from the fleece : washed, carded, handspun with the drop spindle, plyed with an iridescent commercial yarn. And this is what I have done with it in bobbin lace techniques.

I spun and knit the scarf I call Scraps, a compilation of leftover yarn from other spinners (including Insubordiknit and Material Whirled) that I can't stand to throw away. It's currently draped around the neck of a very tall redhead living in Seattle.

Becky Cook/Ann Arbor, MI
I blended extra superfine Merino, cashmere and angora into batts which I then spun. The mitts were based on the Fiber Trends pattern "Easy Mittens." They're incredibly soft. They don't exactly match but I'm a fairly new knitter so I'm still pretty proud of them. They were my mom's Christmas present this year.

The yarn is my first attempt in art yarning. It's mostly white alpaca, twined with handspun red merino yarn, some red bobbles, a torn red T-shirt and black transparent fabric with glittering flowers - all in just one yarn - and scarf.
