Fricken Awesome Fricke and a few FO's

I know I've been absent from blogging but I have been getting a lot of stuff done. AND....
My Fricken Awesome Fricke
I am now the proud owner of a Fricke Spinning Wheel. Woot!

When I first tried spinning at Yarn School I became very frustrated and almost gave up. I'm glad I didn't. Here is a pic of some yarn that I have spun with my new Fricke.

This picture does not do the colors justice at all. The wool I used was some of the "gift bag" stuff from Yarn School, handdyed by Sarah aka: Maisy Day Handspun

Besides spinning yarn I have also been busy finishing some of my knit projects.

Finished Objects

Woo hoo!! My sister's Malabrigo Clapotis is done (finally!) along with Perry's scarf and Farrell's hat. Below are pics of Farrell's hat. The pattern for it can be found here

I love the Fricke wheels!! I just ordered three to sell in my store.

I love your handspun, I think we got the same colorway.

Oh, yay! Congrats on the new wheel, and the yarn looks wonderful!

Yes the wheel is the most awesome thing. My knitting is going to fall way behind.

Congrats on the wheel. Love the yarn and the hat.

How cool that you can make your own yarn! That is amazing.

I absolutely love the skull cap!
