 Smiley .........I love love love all the yarns this week so far!   Kiss

I've only had time to spin one.............it was from a gorgeous roving I received from cyndi (mullerslanefarm) ........



and this is how I spun it up...........



LOL............I'm still trying to decide if I want to ply it with something..............or keep it sock weight so I can use it for color work on my socks............. Roll Eyes

And THIS is why I haven't had time to spin................. Wink

  Cheesy..........I got my package from Cyndi (mullerslanefarm) ...........so prepare for serious fiber envy folks.............. Cheesy


Boy did she ever NOT stick to the "4 ozs. fiber" rule...........  Cheesy .........She sent an amazing 10.5 ozs............. Shocked Shocked Shocked

Group shot:


I had posted I would like to receive sock yarn.......... Smiley .......and hers is soooooooo superior to mine.............. Roll Eyes



The colors were spot on................check out the one I spun.........I think they'll blend perfectly for fabu socks........ Tongue


And as promised in her last Fiber Friday post and teaser...........some gorgeously dyed roving........ Tongue



She also asked my about my spinning tools............which consist of a lazy kate,  niddy noddy,  a couple of spindles,  my wheel........... Smiley ............and my brand new handmade.......
Ball winder......... Grin


 Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss ......Thank you thank you thank you Cyndi!  You are a fantabulous swap partner!   Cheesy

I also told her I would post pics of her swap items since I took some before I shipped........... Smiley

If you've been to her homestead webpage..........you've read about her family and their homestead.............I read somewhere (her member info page I think) that she loved aprons.......... Smiley
As soon as I saw that I knew what I had to make her....... Roll Eyes
Cyndi's working farm is named after the apple trees that line the drive in.............so check this out.......... Wink



I saw this tute.........and had a fabulous fabric perfect for her:


(Please ignore the hole in the sofa in the above pic..........It was a hand-me-down and I refuse to throw it out......just haven't gotten around to fixin' it yet........ Cheesy )

I also knew she liked to garden............so the fibers I included reminded me of Mimosa blossoms:

Lissa, Love love love love!!! the apron and the yarns ... let's just say the roving I dyed for you matches the yarns completely so I'm keeping it and sending you another dye lot ...  I confess, I opened the package the day after it came, couldn't resist any longer and wore the apron all weekend at our Homesteading Weekend

Whew!   Tongue ..........I'm glad to know you liked it............after seeing some of the gallery photos I wondered if I shouldn't have done more.......... Roll Eyes
And to quote one of my favorite artists...... Grin



LOL.........

 Smiley ............Loving all the yarn porn today!  But I gotta say............I am drooling over the sushi colored one krafty_kelly!................And I think that's a very appropriate name for it.......... Cheesy

I did manage to find some I've spun that hasn't been posted yet............. Wink
These are all spun from a gianormous SSS order I placed.......... Smiley

Group shot:


Natural brown (sorry.......I don't remember the yardage.......but it's roughly sport weight singles and was spun from about 12 oz fiber)
 

Unnamed single


And my fave so far:

Nana's Hair- two-plied spun from batts I made consisting of white and black naturals along with mohair


The lighter silver one is so not lacking in the squishiness factor............... Grin

Happy Fiber Friday y'all!

8  A new single..............................in miniature??? UPDATED!! in Spinning: Completed Projects by lissaw70 on: April 20, 2009 03:46:06 PM
 Smiley........My first experiment with spinning a plied lace weight yarn yielded this baby..............



Not too terribly spectacular for a single..............until you see it this way:



 Grin

I had to add the pics of the knitting needles I made to go with the skein...............I've donated them along with the skein to a fellow craftster who's dollhouse has a craft room................ Wink
After all.............every yarn-snob crafty dollie has to have her very own set of custom glass-beaded knitting needles......... Grin
