I bought about a pound of colored merino and spun all this up within about four days.  More expensive than I usually spend, but the colors are so vibrant.  Now, the Yarn:


^ Punky Fairy, 2 ply merino.  Normally pink isn't my thing, but really like this <3


Midnight twist, 1 ply merino.  If you look you can see that a dark purple and dark blue are  twisted together.


Mermaid, Boucle domestic wool


Grape Candy, 2 ply merino.


Coils!  Wish I could do more of this, but I desperately need the jumbo flyer. (unless I do tiny coils, but I don't have that much patience)


Chocolate Candy, 1 ply merino


Black Ice, 1 ply.  Not a fan of this one... don't know why.

Thanks for looking!  I have been dying a lot of roving, so I will be spinning a lot more.

Tiny coils? I want to see how those turn out! All these coil posts have inspired me to go home and try some (once I finish the current thing on the wheel).
