Awesome stuff this week, as usual! I especially like Neon Hotness and Green Spaghetti Party...so bright and fun! I just have one yarn to share this week, I've been on vacation and haven't spun so much. This is a corespun yarn from some of my handcarded batts.

"Macaw"



Includes hand dyed wool, felty bits of merino, and lots of sparkle! Very light and fluffy. I just love corespinning!

Another awesome fiber Friday! I love all the colors that I'm seeing today. Gorgeous!

I was a bad photographer this week, so the three new yarns I spun are still waiting for their pictures! But I do have one yarn that I spun from a Loop Spontaneous Spinning batt photographed. Inachis--supercoil yarn containing yearling mohair, alpaca, merino, corriedale, flax, silk noil, and 100% aluminum Angelina sparkle!

Ooooh, I love Morocco and Froggy Went a-Courtin'! So many lovely yarns this week, but those are my favorites so far. Here are my yarns for the week!

"Perfect Pathway," 153 yards of colorful 100% wool two-ply. The colors will shift from one end of the skein to the other when it's knit up!



"Mimosa", wool, flax, bamboo, mohair, plied with cotton thread strung with teardrop shaped Czech glass beads.



And this one is unnamed at the moment...a softspun yarn from Rambouillet (that I processed myself), millends wool, and some natural soysilk. Super thick and thin, as thick as my thumb in some spots!

Noodle Princess, I'm swooning over both of those yarns!! Amazing!

I was in a colorful two-ply mood this week, and spun up one using scraps of hand dyed wool I had lying around (Space Journey):



and another was more deliberate, I plied several colors together and used sparkle in the colors of my vegetable garden, to create Veggie Patch:

I love Seriously Smitten!! Loop rocks the batts, that's for sure.

I have two to share this week! The first is spun from some of my hand dyed wool, to which I added strips of a vintage Japanese silk scarf. Then I plied it with another single spun from a gorgeous aquamarine bamboo. I call it "Country Kimono."





And this second yarn is from a TerraBellaSpun batt (etsy). I combined it with some hand dyed wool to make big fluffy beehives throughout. I'm planning to make myself a skinny scarf out of this one.

Ohmigosh, I can't pick a favorite this week!! Everything is spectacular...if you put a gun to my head I guess I'd have to say all of Skeffto's singles and Lady of the Swamp. Seriously, this is the best Fiber Friday I can remember!

I have a couple to share. The first is Fluorite--my own hand dyed wool, mixed with some natural oatmeal-colored BFL and some pink bamboo dyed by Folktale Fibers. I think this may be my best single ever! I hadn't spun a regular old single in a while so I guess it was bursting to come out.



And this second one is Dolly (couldn't get Hello, Dolly! songs out of my head after I saw WALL-E!) It's spun from my own hand dyed wool, plus some of a gorgeous Loop mini-batt that contained bamboo, silk noil, sparkle, and sequins. I added some lovely smooth shiny novelty yarn here and there, too.
