Such beautiful yarns! 
I've been knitting and sewing this week, but I did get this one done.  I'm calling it George, because the roving I spun from was pale yellow and tan.  It's BFL plied with light brown Alpaca straight from the farm that I washed and carded before spinning.  It is soooo soft!

Key Lime Sky. The Brown Sheep roving that came with my babe, dyed. 205m, 3.5 oz. Heavy worsted, on average.



Last week's Fibre Friday, becoming a hat. Check out the yellow purl bumps! Totally coincidental.

I'm stuck at home babysitting tonight, which means... dying time!

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.

I had promised myself I would never dye again after spending months dyed rainbow colors up to my elbows and ruining every shirt I owned.  But these hand dyed rovings are a terrible temptation  Cheesy

oh believe me, I was there the second you posted those photos.  I am still negotiating with myself on those.  I LUV them to bits!  But there are some color combos that I am curious about that would be easier to make myself than explain to somebody else.  I don't think I will be able to dye anything for several months, but when I am all moved in I will be dabbling.  I think I will use this time to collect as many colors of dye as I can.

Wow, everyone's projects are gorgeous!  What a bunch of eye candy.

I just finished up my first hand-dyed roving.  CorriedaleX, dyed with Jacquard dye.  Spun up on my Sonata.  12 WPI, 3 ply, 300 yds.

Today was my birthday, that's why I'm a little late Smiley

My main job this week was this enchanted forest yarn:
http://farm1.static.flickr.com/142/377894118_c8d8002735.jpg?v=0
That's 200g or 373m of Falkland wool, hand dyed and all spun on a spindle!

And then I made a yarn called Antique corset out of this stuff:


and here's the yarn (BFL):

It looks much more impressive in real life Cheesy

This is my safari yarn:


Other than that I dyed a lot of roving:

I don't know anything about knitting, but your yarns (if that's even the correct term) are stunning! They make me want to pick up some needles and learn.

The blues and purples are just perfect.
