I'm late!

jexx your yarns are so lovely, i especially love the pink and the brown.  Hows the farmers market working out for you?  What's it like spinning while people watch?

inle_rah-fire and ice is so beautiful and ectoplasm has some lovely greens, does it glow brightly?

volomortuus- those colors are just stunning together.

charaxesdistanti- It looks so soft.

Puppy_girl- your consistency is so lovely.

Sprocketfox- TMNT yarn YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!


I finally made matching skiens, for some reason this is a realllly hard thing for me to do.  Soon as i finish one skein i can't help but spin the other half of my fiber differently to see what it'll look like as a bulky, thick and thin, etc.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone:-* I really missed sharing and spinning.

Calluna- I really like how it turned out and the idea of weaving a yarn through the chain ply is brilliant. I cant get sparkle to show up properly either :/ does anyone have any tips or suggestions on that?

charaxesdistanti- Your alpaca silk is stunning! The colors our gorgeous and the amount of spin in the yarn suits it so well.


Osprey- I just got the flikr recently, i'm finding it sort of confusing and complicated.



Such gorgeous yarn!! I've been missing your posts, glad you are doing good now Smiley

How do you make those beehives in your yarn?

It's just a plain ol' thick n thin but you scrunch up the thick parts to make beehives. If you use a slippery "core yarn" it helps to let it wrap around the primary yarn a couple times before each big beehive to keep them in place. Hope that made sense.

It's Friday!

I've been absent for a good long while now but i have an excuse!!!  I wasn't feeling well for a couple months, then i got sick, then i got sicker, and sicker!   Then my heart went mental and i ended up in the hospital turns out i had Pneumonia and my blood count was so low they gave me two blood transfusions. Then I had a ton of stupid house work to catch up on and now i'm back to work spinning HUZZAH.

Blackie.sage your first yarn is drop dead gorgeous!!!!  and I'm totally jealous of your fiber bunny that yarn looks so soft.

LOL i could get behind fiber thrusday.   Your sparkly singles are really pretty and the sheep shed striping looks wonderfully consistent. I think i like the last one plied with black better, that yellow thread isn't very becoming.  You could do a swatch to see how it works up.

jessy_wa, That purple is just gorgeous and the shetland is so rustic and manly, love it.

nittydread, i think i want to marry you and have your babies. 

I've been mia the past couple weeks, spring cleaning is upon us.
