Wow! those are amazing! I love the bird cloth it has wonderful shading.

The more I see computerized weaving the more I want to try it.

The variation looks great, beautiful spinning.

For color matching the best this is a bigger pot. lol Then you can put all the yarn into it and dye it all at once. Stirring helps with even dying as well.

The T style loom is a great design, and the perfect size for learning to weave. I will have to remember this for teaching.

The only issue with the disposable ones is that the metal can react with the dyes and alter the color.

Great yarns everyone!

Here are some core spun yarns.
They are my first skeins, I used Jazzturle's tut http://jazzturtlecreations.blogspot.com/2009/11/how-do-i-do-it-coreless-corespinning.html   and the bellwether tutorial http://askthebellwether.blogspot.com/2008/12/yarn-story-core-spinning-ballerina.html  

Jade in the ruff


This yarn I did not spin the over spin the core thread in the opposite direction.
Wool, soy silk, sari silk, thread, fire star, silk noil, and nylon.


Fashion is Danger (blue and red) and Poison (brown and green)


Fashion is danger skeins are core spun with the core overspun in the opposite directions of the ply. Then the core spinning was spun to balance out that twist. .  .  in theory it works. But I found it did not work for me. Jade in the ruff was less over twisted then a these skeins.

Poison is a single with core spun elements.
