Welcome! Take a tour of one of my spinning and weaving projects. This is the creation of an afghan made from dog hair. A Leonberger to be specific...

I now have yarn from that cute bunny pictured in an earlier post. There is 8 ounces of yarn in these photos.
The two ply yarn is wrapped around this tool called a niddy-noddy. This makes the skein.
|Wind a skein|
The skeins are then washed and dried before winding into a center pull ball.
I'll post the final photo of the center pull balls another day. I'm off to start the next project. Stay tuned.
Oh, you might wonder how long it took to get from bunny brushings to the yarn in the sink.....20 hours. It isn't a fast process.

Here is a pleated jacket I knit from the brushings of Terra, a Leonberger.
