  I like to call myself a mixed media artist. I paint, spin yarn, weave, knit, crochet, needlepoint, and rug hook. Toronto.

Yup. Had to make another #hitchhiker, but this time with some #handspun, #handdyed #sockyarn

#plying and Netflix. That's what's on the agenda today. #sweaterspin #spinnersofinstagram

Another weird weather day today in Toronto. So I've decided it's a knit another sock day. Loving this #regia #6ply #schachenmayr

I have the patterns for my sweater spins for 2017. Now all I need to do is card two washed Romney fleeces, and spin into skeins. I hope to be knitting very soon. Knitting friends, any good suggestions on storage bobbins? Looks like I'm going to need a few. #daelynpullover #aileas #sweater #cardigan #handspun #spinnersofinstagram #isabellkraemerdesigns

Finally off my wheel and skeined up. Look at the shine on this super soft, squishy alpaca and mulberry silk combo. This will become the weft for a woven shawl on my ashford loom. #handspun #handmade #weaversofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #alpaca #silk #spinnersofinstagram #ilovespinningsingles

It's a really good thing I've got another pair of socks on the needles! My April socks! #rhicharddevriezeyarn #knittersofinstagram #handmade #sockknitting

It's a hard life!!!! #oscarandholly #chihuahua #dachshund

From raw fleece to washed fleece to carded batts. This fleece will be my sweater spin for 2017. Gorgeous gorgeous grey. #mainerimney #romney #spinnersofinstagram #handmade #fromsheeptosweater

I'm still on track. My March socks just finished using #SweetGeorgia yarn. Next up for April, the #churchmouse #turkish socks.

From carded batt to handspun yarn. #spinnersofinstagram #rawfleece #alpaca #silk

A good hot bath for this gorgeous grey #maine #romney fleece. So much colour variation on one sheep, it's incredible. Can't wait to see what it looks like all carded up. Those bubbles aren't soap, it's the natural lanolin from the fleece.

Hugo got groomed today. Guess what I made the groomer give me. Yup. I'm gonna do it. I'm going to try spinning dog fur. He's a #shitzu so it's feels more like alpaca fleece than dog fur. This is gonna get real interesting. #spinnersofinstagram #spinningdogfibers
