woodlandsprite-  Thanks so much!  I was so pleased with how it turned out.  Of course, I have no clue what I'm going to do with it...  However... I do have a slight problem... I can't seem to make thicker yarn to save my life Sad  I guess I'll just have to practice more.  I really want to have a yarn that's the right weight to make a pair of Bayersriche socks (Eunny Jang)

So here is my first attempt at single plying yarn.
I let it dry with a water bottle hanging from it and seems to have helped the crinky ness.
I am getting better but I am want to get some fiber that is machine processed beacuse it is so much easier to draft. But I can't bring myself to buy more sense I still have a good five pounds of fiber.

You could always try cabled yarn (plying two or three 2-ply yarns together), or just using more singles when plying.. I tend to spin my singles fairly fine now, and I have to really slow myself down and constantly remind myself that I'm doing something thicker if that's how I intend to spin.

Thanks for the tip!  I'll have to give that a try!

I'm many days late, and I don't even have any yarn for this (last!) week, but I couldn't let Fiber Friday go by completely without any comments:

Knitwit - i LOVED your Breakfast At Tiffany's yarn - it's so creative and perfect and I told anyone who would listen about it! Smiley

Snowberrylime - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Again, a few days late, but I hope it was a lovely day anyway! And I agree with the comments already posted - your Antique Corset yarn is really lovely, I love all the little bits you chose for it.

I'm bummed I missed out on joining all the yumminess this week - I hope to have something spun up by this Friday!

Good Lord, so many beautiful posts this week and so much gorgeous roving.

KnitWit - I love the Breakfast at Tiffany's, you got the color dead on and your photos look great.

So many newbies too, that is the way it should be everyone spinning and sharing too fun.

Well I am ages late but here it is:

This is a custom skein I am working on with shredded calico prints, ric rac and more.




Oh - and Happy B-day Snowberry Lime.
