Still working hard to build up some stock for the local farmers market. Starts in two weeks, so I'm crafting like crazy.

Noodle Princess - I always like the marbled swirls of rainbow in your yarn. Beautiful.

Sunrise - Merino, alpaca, soy silk, and sparkle spun from a Hobbledehoy Batt. (Photo pre setting the twist)

Midnight - BFL and Falkland. 205 yards corespun.

Bengal - Punta and falkland wool

Mystic - BFL, romney, alpaca, falkland. I used some raw wool in this skein so there's tons of texture.

mullerslanefarm - This is the first year that our community is having a farmers market so I really have no idea how it will go. We definately have a huge amount of people who own vacation homes here, so they are from a larger center. I'm sharing a booth with a needle felter as well, so we should have quite a variety of items.

Jazzturtle - I love the look of Unforgettable. The mohair curls are awesome. I also love the colours of red wood forest.

Hey fiber fiends,

I have a few this week. Have been spinning a ton trying to get ready for the farmers market this summer. I'm pretty excited to spin in the sunshine and educate people about spinning and hand spun yarn.

Un named - 100% Finn wool spun extremely thick and thin  Oh so soft  still have to set the twist

All Dressed - I spun this from batts I carded - bamboo, merino, corriedale, falkland, sparkle, and tons of alpaca.

Get off of my cloud - My fav this week - Falkland, bamboo, merino, romney, and corriedale dyed blue with massive white/gray cocoons raw merino, falkland, romney and sparkle. I'm waiting on some felting needles to arrive and then I think I might try to shape the cocoons a little.

Hey all!

Have a few this week.

Bumbo - another name for a marble. I used to collect marbles when I was a kid and was inspired by finding my old collection.

Moss - 185 yards - romney, falkland, and corriedale

Not named - I was inspired this week to spin a two ply as I always seem to spin thick and thin singles. I think that I might make the hat out of Intertwined with it. Love it!

Ah, it's been awhile. I've been doing loads of spinning , but was camera-less as my partner was backpacking around Germany. I've been spinning yarn for a local doll maker. Haven't taken any photos of that yarn, but here's a link to her flickr page - http://www.flickr.com/photos/figandme/ So pretty!
Love all the yarns this week. Sensibly Tacky - love your colour combos!

Melba - Falkland, merino, and bamboo dyed by moi. Spun thick and thin 7oz 134 yards

I had three yarns to share this week but forgot to photograph them. They were for a local doll maker who's using my yarns for doll hair. It's too bad because they turned out really nice.

The Noodle Princess - I saw your ad in bust yesterday. Nice work!

Hey all
Everyone's yarns are awesome.
AudreyJ84 - Great job. Keep it up
Jadzy - I love Syren's Song. I remember seeing that batt on flikr. It's gorgous!
Jazzturtle - You amaze me as always. Goldfish pond and waterlillies are beautiful. Is waterlillies the monet batt?

I have three for this week

Sugar and Spice - 50/50 merino tencil. Spun for my aunt. It's alittle plain for my taste.

Terrah - Spun from "Twig" batts by Liz at Hobbledehoy(she is a fiber genius). Merino, bamboo, alpaca, and sparkle. So delectably soft!

Oh Sunny Day - Corespun from hand-dyed mohair locks. Full of texture and curls. Supah fun!

Friday! Wheeee!

So I have three this week. I spent some quality time with my drum carder last week.

Ice Hockey - corridale, BFL, targhee, merino, silk, firestar, mohair (carded and locks), and angora. So soft and fluffy.

Ice Hockey part two - Same as above, but corespun

Like Buttah or Glass Slipper (I haven't decided yet)- Silk, hemp, tencil, bfl, corridale, and merino corespun.
So out of this world soft and creamy.
