1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday - 24 July 2009 on: July 24, 2009 12:51:43 AM
Hi everybody!
It's Fiber Friday and I can't believe I'm the first here. How exciting!

Last Friday I couldn't be here with you because I had no internet connection.
However, I went on hanspinning my yarns for the Tour de Fleece and today I'm posting here some of them.

The first yarn was inspired by cartoon character Hello Kitty.
Red and pink merino rovings, a lot of sparkling red bows and some yellow kid mohair locks literally jumped through my Traveller's orifice to wind on the bobbin and recreate the colors of the tiny kitten my daughter loves so much.



The second yarn is a tribute to Noro Kureyon.
Handspinning this yarn has been very amusing and I like the pic I took of it "en plein soleil" Wink



This is Crazy Rainbow, a tribute to my virtual teacher Lexi Boeger, whose books have been so precious for my handspinning experience. I prepared a lot of hand dyed domestic wool rovings and handspun them randomly.



Colors of grape harvest inspired me for this yarn I named Vendemmia.
I handspun domestic wool with many odds and ends, including Colinette ribbons and chenille:



The last two yarns are Amethyst and Sodalite. They are made of superfine merino, kid mohair locks and mulberry silk and their colors match with the homonimous semi-precious stones.
They are  decorated with many stone chips as well.







I think that it's enough for today.
I hope that my internet connection will go on working, so that I may navigate through all the posts and yarns you'll be uploading.

Many kisses from Italy!
