Its BARELY midnight but here is our first Fiber Friday of the year, hooray! 

I might have more later as they dry since I finished a bunch today too.  This is what I have so far...

All of you wonderful people have totally inspired me to try this spinning thing, and here's my second attempt ever! It's wool.. but past that I don't know specifics, I bought it on eBay...



I used a drop spindle and I attempted plying.. and I only got about 7 yds cause I just wanted to practice. Cheesy

And here's what it looked like on the spindle: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v482/Jestique/crafts/DSC03656.jpg

Oh, finally a fiber friday I can post to! For the last two weeks I've been unable to find my camera cord, so I couldn't post. So, WARNING:: This post is a bit long, as I'm on school break so I have lots of time to spin.

Last week, I spun this. The white is Natural Blending Nylon and the blue is BFL.

Here's a closeup of the BFL.

Currently, I'm spinning this.


It's actually very variegated; I switch colors quite a bit.

I've also been messing with my homemade hackle, and made these.

And, last but not least, I've dyed some rovings.

Hi people - Happy New Year!! Everyone's yarns look gorgeous! And misshawklet's pets made me laugh a little too - I like how your dog is posing but your cat doesn't seem bothered by any goings on. Smiley Very, very much like my pets.

I'm so glad to be able to post today - I'd missed out a few weeks because of Christmas present projects. And it's a big week for me because I got an Ashford Traditional for Christmas (it took all my strength not to put that in all capitals) and I have my first wheel skeins to show off!

First is a spindle spun yarn, which I hadn't gotten around to taking a picture of until today. It's superwash merino from Crown Mountain Farms, only a small skein because it wasn't coming out as bulky as I wanted.




And then I got my wheel and all hell broke loose. My first tries (all merino) were all crazy overspun, so I used them to try plying:




And since I'm loving big squishy lumpy singles right now, I decided I'd try that out.




(Just to be clear, I was actually trying to get them thicker and more uneven each time. Smiley I had a hard time with that on my spindle, so I thought I'd start there with the wheel.)Since those were coming out quite nice, I decided to return to the superwash. I bought it specifically for a scarf for a friend of mine and I wanted it super crazy bulky.



(I just realized that these look like the same bulkiness as the spindle spun skein, but it really is much bulkier.) There were three skeins, but I started crocheting the scarf before I could take pictures. It's so soft and bouncy, I can't wait to use some for myself. Sorry this post was so very long, I'm just very proud of my wheel progress and I love him so much! (Sometimes I just give him a little pat when I walk by, he's such a good boy.) But now I'm preparing myself to learn to spin thinner on him, so there's a good chance my enthusiasm will be a little less intense next week. Smiley

Looks great so far everyone! Woo hoo for winter break! I finally got around to some spinning after the Christmas chaos was over... On my first-ever wheel that my boyfriend got me!!! (He's a keeper  Smiley) I've only been at this for a couple months, so I'm not exactly sure that I'm even using the wheel correctly, but it's fun and I'm definitely getting better. Anyways, these first two (all wool) were my last attempts on my drop spindle, and the last one (corredaile and nylon) is my third attempt from my wheel. Next up is learning how to dye...

I'm in super stealth mode for a non-craftster swap I'm doing so I can't post my spinning from this week. I can tell you all that it made my hands very blue [for some reason blue is the only dye that ever seems to come off on my hands. Weird.]

I've been in knitting mode this week, so no new yarn from me, but everyone else's is great!  I love grayling40's creamy yarn.  100bean, your yarns all look like they're made out of Playdoh!  Too cool.  As far as the hairpick hackles go, I used mine before Christmas to blend sparkle fiber evenly into my roving.  It worked great, since I was trying for the particular yarn I was doing to get a little bit of sparkle eveywhere in the yarn, as opposed to clumps of it here and there.  It's what keeps me going since I don't have a drum carder yet.  Smiley

eta:  Wait, I just realized that since I was knitting with my handspun, I can at least show an in progress photo of how the yarn is knitting up:

http://cidermoon.com/images/boswinkle.jpg

It's going to be (hopefully) a loose tank top kind of thing with skinny straps.  I've never knit anything like this before, so wish me luck.

Thanks goodness it is Friday.

Everything looks so good and I am glad we have new posts by new spinners, the addiction is spreading, yay!

Here is my favorite this week.

Technicolor Hand, dyed, carded and spun. This is made up of the domestic wool R.H. Lindsey Co. had on sale for six freakin bucks a pound. I checked yesterday and it is still that price!

So all the colors are hand dyed and carded with some great brown rovings I order from Brown Sheep. I heart Brown Sheep!!





I liked the way the browns muted the color instensity when I carded it in. I will have to try that again.

Hey is anyone celebrating Roc Day or Distaff Day this weekend?

GOOD LUCK Lufah!!

xo to everybody

I'm going to a Distaff Day celebration for the local spinning guild. I'm excited, I've never been to a guild meeting of any kind before! It's also their annual swap meet, so I'll probably get to pick up lots of lovely fiber for my wheel...hurry up, wheel!!!
Love that handspun too, madeline!

Wow, you guys have certainly set the year off to a great start! 

Lufah - I love those colours.  That must be a gorgeous yarn.

misshawklet - Those sparkle fibers are really pretty.  Is that nylon?  They go really well with the colour  of that yarn.

Obsessed Knitter - Do you find using the hackle easy?  I've been meaning to try making one for a while.

One of my wishes for the new year is to spin more, and so far it's been going pretty well.  I'll be posting my week's spinning a bit later, once I take pictures.

Here are my offerings for this week:

Deep Water

I dyed some white and black wool mill ends as roving, and then spun two bobbins of singles.  I navajo-plied both bobbins (to keep the black seperate), for 2 skeins of 3-ply yarn.  I'm hoping that it will be mostly blue with a few black stripes when it's knit up.

Specifics:

Skein 1 - 2.0 oz/58 g
Skein 2 - 2.5 oz/73 g

100% wool, dyed with acid dyes
worsted-light bulky weight
spinning/plying: 5 h total

 

And another in progress:

Grey mill ends spun into a thin single.  I'm going to spin another bobbin of singles, and then make a 2-ply.  I don't know if I'm going to dye it or not.

This bobbin is 4.7 oz/133 g.  I find that I'm getting much better at keeping my spinning consistent, while going faster.  This bobbin took 2 h.

   


I notice that some of you post yardages with your skeins.  I have a scale, so the weight isn't hard to find, but how do you know the length?

Yay!  It stopped raining so I could take pictures when I went home for lunch.  Does anyone else feel like a photo editor for Southern Living when you're "posing" your yarn for its "shoot"?  Ha!



Superwash merino from Hello Yarn, spun and navajo plied by me.  Glaring errors in the close-up, blech.



Leicester/rambouillet I got from a guild member and dyed in my new turkey roaster (definitely the way to go).  My son named this Wet Cheetos.   Undecided



Lastly, my favorite.  4-6 oz. (?) Falkland (?) (I've GOT to start writing this stuff down!), dyed by me and two plied because I wanted it soft and airy.  445 yards, people!  Woot!  18 wpi, so I've FINALLY made laceweight (according to icanspin).  Yippee!

Bloodyraven - I count yards when I wind the yarn on my niddy noddy.  I'd LOVE to have a yardage counter, but not in the budget right now.

Madelinetosh - I love those bright colors!  It's so nice to see what everyone's done with the Brown Sheep mills ends, since I have 6 lbs. on the way (dang feds closing down on Tuesday, grumble, won't arrive until next week, grumble grumble). 

Holly - gorgeous (as always).  Love the coils!  Have you ever knitted with them?

I've got 2 to show:
Mint Mocha: A gift, that will be given away this afternoon Smiley
5.8 oz of handblended mixed wools



and I'm so excited, I finally spun another one of these skeins - it's my "signature" yarn (as in I use it in my shop logo and stationary etc)
It's called Desert Globe Mallow - it only gets made every now and again because it's so time consuming - but every time I make it, I fall in love again.
Spun from one of my own handblended batts -
merino & alpaca wools + firestar & angelina and the "flowers" are a bamboo blend yarn

Hooray for Fiber Friday!  Everyone's contributions are so pretty!

Here's my one skein for this week... hopefully there will be more soon as the holiday crafting ends and I can start being selfish again Smiley



It's 50% merino 50% tussah silk, dyed by Fleece Artist.  It's spun as loosely as I could manage in order to make it soft and fluffy - check out the halo!  The colors remind me of a kelp forest.

OK, this is my first contribution to Fiber Friday so here goes.

This was some of MamaE's Cyber Fiber Merino/Tencil in the October Night colorway.

It looked like this:
http://soapturtle.net/craftster/fiber.jpg

I navajo plied it and it came out like this:
http://soapturtle.net/craftster/lyingflat.jpg

In a skein it looks like this:
http://soapturtle.net/craftster/skeinend.jpg

And this is what it looks like knit up:
http://soapturtle.net/craftster/knitup.jpg

It's a fingering weight at approximately 16 wpi (give or take), and I used a US3 needle for knitting it up.  The bump was about 4ozs of fiber and it yielded roughly 226 yards, all navajo plied.  I spun this on my Kromski Sonata, which I just got.  It was my third attempt at navajo plying, so it's a little uneven here and there.

That's all the details I can think of right now.  Happy spinning. Smiley

Ack more yarn coveting!!! I was up at 5:30 am and spun my little fingers to the bone so I could FINALLY contribute to Fiber Friday, and my stupid camera has no batteries. ::scream::: If I can get some before the night's over I'll post it. They are bright orange and green ala neon 80's colors dyed with Wilton's gel. sigh... maybe hubby will take me on a battery run...

Okay here it is...on my camera phone...not true color...think neon orange like Popsicles. This is my fourth or fifth skein I've ever spun. This was done on my ashford drop spindle. Have no idea how much is there... enough for spiderman to climb hehe Grin

This is roving that was dyed over the last week.  We have been really creative this past week. The sock yarn and the ball of variegated red roving is a creation of my husband. He has been getting into dying to help me out some. (Sorry about the picture, I didn't have a spot that could show off everything clearly. Thats my bed sheet cover for anyone who cares... Tongue)

Here's my first ever skein of plied yarn.  It was done on my Schact drop spindle.  I spun a thick and thin single from domestic roving after dyeing it with Kool Aid and food coloring mixed dyes.  Then, I plyed it with black sewing thread and pastel seed beads.  Then I have partially knit a garter stitch scarf from it.  Here are the pictures:

Obsessed Knitter - Do you find using the hackle easy?  I've been meaning to try making one for a while.

I'm still getting the hang of it. To be fair though, I haven't clamped it down; I have to hold it and use the diz to pull off the fiber at the same time. Each one I make though is looking better. It's also hard because I don't have combs or cards, and some of the fibers I have really need to be recombed/carded before using a hackle.

Eventually I'll get some dog combs Cheesy.

I'm in the same boat as TheBon this week! I've spun up a couple of skeins for my swap partner which I can't show...but I also spun some skeins for a hat for my boyfriend I'm happy to share!
I dyed all kinds of wool and mohair various shades of green along with some black and blue.  I carded all the colors together along with these little wool clumpy things I dyed with neon food coloring.
I then corespun everything around some dark green boucle.

Gee whiz, Fiber Friday is pretty exciting this week! I'll also be on the look out for a hair pick this week - I think I read that post before, but I must not have known enough about fiberly things at the time to understand why it's so cool. Thanks for that, Lufah! - and your knitting is amazing, be sure to show us when it's finished. Oh, and you're so right, my yarn does look like Play-Doh! I love that so much, my wheel practice skeins will now be called "The Play-Doh Series". Smiley

I love those little poofy bits in your Delicate yarn, caedara. And misshawklet, your colors are always so amazing, that third one looks like yummy melty sherbet! Mmm.

You all have inspired me to give navajo plying a go, but it was a bit of a disaster. The second try was a tiny bit better - does anyone have any good tips for a navajo newbie?

100Bean - I would suggest that you go really slowly at first, until you get the hang of making the loops.  I use my left hand to do all of the loop-making and to keep the whole operation from collapsing in on itself, and I use my right hand to hold the twist back and smooth the yarn out.  I find that my biggest problem is over-plying, so I have to be careful not to treadle as fast as my feet seem to want.

I hope this helps Smiley

Thanks, bloodyraven, that does help - I just spun some stuff and have loads leftover of one of the singles. I'm going to give navajo plying another try right now and try to go very ... very ... slowly. Smiley Hopefully I'll have something successful to show next week!
