Yeah, Rocky road is awesome! I also really loved the secret garden. I loved all the colours this week and there have been a lot of pretty funky art yarns, which is always great! It really stands out that many people's mojo has returned!!
A bit late, but here is some of my spinning for the week:
This would be a 'new and improved' version of an old yarn of mine called frog prince. This time it is far more over the top with lots of beads in addition to all the other stuff!
Also, it was a great week for vegan yarns and I really got the hang of soy silk now, here one hand dyed in greens:
...and a hot pink one with pearls!
A really exciting experiment (definitely to be repeated!) was pink berry truffle, a pure Tussah silk yarn with huge, fluffy blobs of baby camel:
I guess it has been quite a green week overall, with Lemon verbena:
...and Lime dazzle:
Exotic fruits rule my world!
Last but not least goldfish in the sky, a Merino/silk yarn with coils:
Hi, I'm a little late for the party, but since I haven't taken part in so long.... There are so many beautiful skeins here again this week! And everyone has been so prolific!
Well, here are some of my most recent yarns:
Golden girl, natural golden Tussah with Merino and lots of golden 'stuff':
Hippie Love, a hand dyed Merino with lots of happy flower beads:
The butterfly and the stone, Grey Merino with colourful Mohair and wrapped in a cotton boucle thread:
A lovely pastel-y hand dyed pure Tussah silk:
One of my new favourites, 'sparkly poodle' a Merino/silk yarn with sparkle and plied with boucle thread - so luxurious and soft! To me this should become a 40s style stole, resembling a fur stole just far more animal friendly.
One ply hand dyed Tussah silk, the other hand-processed and hand dyed Suri Alpaca (so much work!):
And here I present: Indiana Jones and the raiders of the lost yarn. The temple of wool is already in the making...
Also, I went to visit my parents last week and brought back lots of Alpaca fibre from a local farm, here is a quick impression of a total cutie:
This results in Alpaca yarn, obviously, and the one that's already nicely finished and washed is this one (Pure baby Alpaca, so incredibly soft!):
I hope this was no picture overkill, hehehe... Right off the bobbin is some Baby Alpaca carded with Tussah silk, I could live in this! Perhaps I should knit a house from it...
