1  Re: Fibre Friday - 6th March 2009 - First of Spring! in Spinning: Completed Projects by zuxana on: March 07, 2009 05:44:52 AM
I didn't get to post yesterday, because my camera borked right before I was to take the pics Sad  But I borrowed my friend's camera and got my pics taken this morning, so I hope no one minds if I am posting my stuff a day late.

These are my first yarns that I have spun up on my new espinner that I got for my birthday!   Grin

First up is Lime Squishee:
  Spun from hand dyed mill ends, this is sooo soft and ummm, SQUISHEE!

Next is Orange Sunshine:
Also hand dyed mill ends in orange, pink and yellow, plied with invisible thread with a few coils here and there.  This is even squishier than the lime one.

The Viking:
My daughter's Viking obsessed boyfriend named this one.  It is just everything that was in my big bale sample that came with my SSS order.  I was bored and uninspired, so I just grabbed that and started rough spinning handfuls of it.  I am pleased with how it actually came out!

And last up is Blueberry Twist:

Oh boy, I am LOVING the espinner *bounce*

Okay, here is my first Fiber Friday post.  I've been spinning on homemade drop spindles for about 9 months, but never got around to posting for FF because 1) I lacked a decent digital camera and 2) I hadn't spun up anything I felt worthy (I'm a little bit of an anal retentive perfectionist)  Tongue

So.... I took these mill ends that I'd dyed with McCormick's food coloring:

and spun them up on my CD drop spindle into this:

4 oz, 121 yards, navajo plied

3  Bloo Raspberry Mohair in Dyeing: Completed Projects by zuxana on: June 03, 2008 06:27:43 PM
Well, I can't post pics yet, so here is a link to it  

It is mohair from Sheep Shed Studio, dyed with McCormick's neon blue.  I'm planning to core spin this over some blue/black striped singles whenever I find some time to spin (hopefully soon.)  Eventually it will become a hat for my daughter Smiley
