This was my third yarn:

I crocheted my second yarn into a pair of slippers, but I don't have pictures of them yet because I'm still trying to sew on leather soles.

rubysdaughter: The tussah looks lovely. I've only worked with a little tussah, and it spins up so nicely. Your's is inspiring me to get my hands on some more.

Everyone has such great yarn this week. Really vibrant!

All of my fiber this week was 100% merino:


This is the roving and the single I posted last week, plied together. 137 yards. It's going to be made into a pair of slippers.

Some roving I dyed this week; I haven't yet started spinning it yet.


I did a pastel this week, too. 106 yards, plied with light pastel holoshimmer. I spun the single on a top whorl spindle that I made myself.

I'll probably be uploading bigger pictures in my blog and my Flickr, later, if anyone is interested in closeups. Smiley

Everyone's fiber looks amazing, as usual.

Woodlandsprite, your Raspberry Truffle is amazing. I love that pink.

Here's mine for this week, all done on a bottom whorl spindle:


This was earlier in the week; I wanted to experiment with Wilton's Violet. It looks blue in this picture, but it actually is a deep plum color. Natural light plays all sorts of weird tricks with colors. I almost wish it was the color in this picture. This was just the last bit of some roving... I spun it and then dyed it.

One of the rovings that I dyed yesterday. I used Wilton's bright yellow, black and brown icing dyes. I love how the black separated; on the flip side, there are little red spots where I accidentally flicked some black dye that was left on my spoon. It looks cool; I hardly want to spin it!

This is a single spun from a roving dyed with Wilton's kelly green, royal blue and copper. The copper turned chocolatey brown in spots, and it looks awesome with the green. I think I'll be doing four ounces of roving with just copper and kelly green next week.

After I get both of these rovings spun up, I'll probably ply them together, and make a pair of slippers out of the yarn.
