Stand off

I spy, with my little eye.

The chickens have discovered the cat feeding station. They scared off two of the cats, but Puddin' wouldn't back down. She hissed, she stared, she just kept eating. I chased the chickens away, but I may have to find a new place to feed the cats.

Then, of course, there's another peg loomed item. Alpaca/denim lint/cotton scarf, about 9" by 45", with a 5" knotted fringe. I would have liked to make it longer, but I ran out of yarn. Dang.

Rick, yeah, I'm like a kid with a new toy the day after Christmas. So far though, the novelty hasn't worn off. If anything, I get more excited as I'm experimenting.
The denim lint is a by-product of the manufacture of jeans. It is comprised of little threads and bits of fabric, combined with regular cotton. It is a beast to spin alone (for me, anyway) and not much easier to blend with other fibers.

Cindy, yes, it is super soft. The fiber is from Peach Boy, my best animal.

What type of camera do you use? Your photos are so incredible. I think it may be the artist more so than the tool that makes them that way :)

Love the stuff you are doing on the loom BTW.

I love that Puddnin! Her fur is beautiful! It looks so soft in the sun.
And, yes! Do tell us what camera you use. I've wondered myself.

I'm looking forward to seeing what comes off the loom next! :-)

I use a Canon Digital Rebel for most of them.
