Ahh artificial light: I did photoshop zap it a little to get the colours closer to true.

but as luck would have it the sun came out for just long enough to take this:


Stupid winter lack-of-sun.  Angry

Zombie_Queen: Kraken looks fun  Cheesy I really like the subtle purples and purple-greys in there.  I do admit to having a soft spot for famous couples though. It reminds me of something but i'm not too sure what.... :S

Fibre Festival?! I definitely need to travel more....

Sarahj2001:I really like the first two and your dyed wool! The Queen of Hearts does look very shiny (both literally and in the awesome way), but I'm more curious as to how your kool-aid wool will spin up Cheesy.

Slingmomma: The firestar/superwash looks so icy Tongue Does the firestar mess with the overall softness of the fibre at all?

SewMamaLady: That bamboo fiber is something else, very vibrant and it looks very silky.  Your last two (from the fiber swap and purchase) both remind me of the fruity smoothies we get in summer!

Freestyle: the yarn for onredboot looks interesting, what fiber(s) is it? Starburst looks lovely, the colours work really well together.


Now for the spin-along http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=358088.0 I'm doing a hat for myself largely due to a) a lack of fiber and b) a lack of time.... So, the hat will be made using the "Divine Hat" pattern over on Rheatheylia.com and pretty close to the last of my fiber  Cry


Some of the undyed roving


Dyed roving (only about half of it)


Some of the over-spun singles  Lips sealed

I've got it all plied now (waiting for reasonable light to photograph it) so I'll try and post it in the next few days  Undecided

Oh wow! Silence one week and now an explosion of amazing yarns!

I only have one contribution this week v_v but that's mostly due to my dwindling fiber supply. Never fear! i'll hopefully get fibers levels back up to where they should be soon  Cheesy



19.5 micron merino roving to start with, which i convinced my mum to try dyeing. Spun up really thickly (soo very very soft and squishy) then plied with some plain brown thread. I just want to continually nuzzle this stuff!

Bah. Could not get a colour-accurate photo of this one. It's soft browns and greens, but the camera decided to add more brown >< Do you guys have any tips on getting decent photos of yarn?


very very soft. Again with the extra brown though :/ it's a shade or two more yellow/cream irl.

Rather late, but ah well. My third attempt on a wheel- slowly getting better Cheesy



and a close-up


All of it (unknown yardage) has gone to bfs' mum who taught me how to use her spinning wheel Smiley  100% merino about 13 or 14 wpi

Ack! Friday already??

Lovely colourways, and your singles look so soft! I'm really curious to see how you spin up that last colourway- it looks really thin! Are you planning to ply it or leave it as a single?

Well, i did end up attempting boucle on my dropspindle. It didn't really work. I got most the way but i know where i went wrong...i think Huh.  Couldn't get the binder to ply nicely either  Cry so it's just been left as a bumpy misc. I'll be setting the twist and such like over the next week.



1 oz merino, unknown yardage, approx 8 wpi. Detail shot gives the most accurate colours.

And behold! the dye batch of Fail.

It's been plied with a really quite nice variegated brown single which has (sort of) saved it.... i think....
I'm still unsure about it but at least it won't go to waste, which is the main thing really. Been a pain getting through the dye batch of fail though i'll say that much  Angry

 Belladune -Shadow Priest v2.0 really turned out well with the gold thread.

 Shocked All the yarns are really really gorgeous this week, if i could i'd take them home with me.

Nothing finished this week to show but here's an in progress pic. The coin used as a size reference is an Australian 5c which is about 2cm in diameter:


It's going to take me a while to get through all the fibre for it (and i'm not too happy with the colour it came out Lips sealed)

Jrain i agree with silversunalpacas' icecream comparison, but it makes me think more of honeycomb than vanilla. or maybe custard....or creme caramels....delicio us anyway!

Silversunalpacas i love the subtle shades you've got in there, it really makes the silky texture jump out at a person. Did you dye it?
I'm also glad to hear about the staple length and that the silk is easier to work with than bamboo, am hopefully going to be raiding the interwebs for some soon(ish).


Second round of hand-dyed roving, this is the most colour accurate photo i could get  Undecided The shades are a smidgen richer in r/l but that's about the only difference. Makes me think of lichen, but perhaps that's just fallout from my botany lectures. Huh

10  Lemming ahoy! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Azzarath on: May 28, 2010 11:27:17 PM
Played with fabric paint a little while back and created a lemming shirt! Alas i haven't been able to rescue the little builder from the bf for long enough to get a decent photo. Fortunately a second lemming appeared,a  floater this time, and stuck around long enough to be photographed.
Here he is:



And a gremlin shirt soon followed. This little guy is based on David Booths' goblin minion over at Dungeon Mastering. The shiny bits are because he's still a bit wet in the photo, he dried to a more matt black and the chalk marks behind have since disappeared.
