Samples and hopeful for hummingbirds

I carded some batts the other day and started spinning one. I spun about half of one and thought the yarn was thinner than I wanted it so I stopped. Then I saw some yarn I had on a bobbin, leftover from a 2-ply I did recently.

I plied them together and I'm oh-so-happy with it. Will have to dye some wool for the purple strand and make a whole yarn out of it. This pic is a little more blue than the actual yarn, but no time to fiddle with it today.

today i'm making a sample yarn

Instead we're going to finally (finally!) make some hummingbird food and hang the feeder in the backyard. Sounds like an excellent afternoon project to me.

Lovely! Good luck with your hummers!


That's pretty yarn.

We have a mama hummingbird sitting on her nest at the back door. They come back to the same nest every year.


well what a pretty happenstance!

hope you'll post about making the hummingbird food too!
