Sushi yarn WIP

Sushi yarn WIP
Originally uploaded by snowberrylime
Hello again, I seem to have been quite quiet recently, although (or maybe because) I did lots of spinning. I have accepted my stash problem and am working on it. Plus of course I am preparing madly for the craft fairs I will be attending this year. I have been to many, many craft fairs all over the world, but have never sold at one. I have once sold at an antiques market though, so that experience might come in handy.

Quite a while ago my lime green yarn with beads has been featured on this blog.
I like the way Sassa presents her etsy finds, they generally look like a themed treasury, either with similar colours or an overarching theme. So go check it out!

My current work in progress art yarn is this delightful Sushi extravaganza. It features the most amazing little Sushi beads, handmade by Fancyguppy (who doesn't seem to be around at the moment, but her beads are truly fantastic!). I am combining it with red wool handcarded with lots of red Angelina sparkle, handprocessed black Alpaca and bright white pure Tussah silk. I chose these colours to represent Japan, the homeland of Sushi. The strong contrast should set of the beads quite nicely as well...

Other than that I have made a few more fibre orders and the first one has arrived. It consists mainly of organic cotton in two natural shades and organic linen in white and a natural brown/grey. So these fibres are likely to pop up in my new yarns. :)

Sushi yarn?! What a wonderful idea! :-) Come to think of it, it's weird that my Twisted shop partner has not thought of that yet, she loves sushi ;-)
