1  Re: March-long spin-along! (or fiber stash busting event!) in Craftalongs by casmir on: March 17, 2011 12:44:18 PM
I forgot to show some of what I've done this month.
It's four ounces of merino that I don't remember buying. Right now I'm beading tufts of fiber to try spinning a beaded single. I hope it works out - it's sure taking enough prep time.

Apparently I still can't add pictures.

Here are a few of my finished yarns for this month. The black and red is a merino and silk blend that feels very smooth. I got just under 600 yards of worsted weight. The blue is from a batt of all sorts of stuff. It's about sport weight - I forget the yardage on it. The pink is superwash merino. It's my first try at a three-ply and is very bulky and squishy. I only got about 200 yards but it will be a bold accessory of some sort.
I love Fiber Fridays. I get so distractd at looking that I forget to post!

Oh, jazzturtle! I love the King of Pop you spun up! It's exactly the MJ I remember, too. How did you do the soaps? I've been wanting to try some but don't know how.
Here are a couple that I've spun this week:

my daughter named this skein purplicious. It's a three ply of various fibers, about heavy worsted weight, 101 yards.

This skein is Morning Mist, also a three ply of various fibers, worsted weight, about 98 yards.
I've been so inspired every week by the colors and textures that everyone shares that I'm trying to experiment, break out of my roving-braid monogamy, and be more daring. One of these days I may have something as gorgeous as the skeins above. Grin

I finally set the twist on this - I spun it up awhile ago but it's been waiting to be finished. It's BFL from Squoosh on etsy. Sorry it's blurry. My hands get shaky sometimes.

I spun this up for the Harry Potter knit and crochet House Cup on ravelry:


It's baby camel down plied with copper thread. It's super soft and squishy. I'm saving up for more camel so I can make some for my own use.

Wow, everyone's made such pretty cloths. I really need to get my butt in gear. I'll see if I can put up pics of some I did in January.
If any of you are on ravelry, there are some really nice dishcloth patterns there. I'll go look up some links.
Happy February everyone!

Well, the picture thing didn't work right, but I think at least you can see them. (I'm computer-retarded, in case you couldn't tell)
