Whoopee!! It's Friday!!! First up I have about 250 yards of BFL singles, handdyed by Sweet Georgia. I finished this a couple weeks ago but never got around to taking pics until this week.





And here's two big skeins--about 222 yards total--of Lorna's Laces top in Glenwood, turned into my first two-ply on the wheel. I call it "Sweettarts."  Grin

Beautiful yarns already this morning! 
Lubee:  Congrats on your first yarn!  It looks great.

I finally finished plying the monster that was on my wheel (yay!) but may not get a chance to take/post a picture until tomorrow morning.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

two pages already!!  I love them all! They are so wonderful, all of them!!  I always enjoy seeing the new spinners Cheesy

I don't have anything to contribute this week.  I finished washing and setting the last of the yarn I posted last week.  I have to take a break from spinning, my fingers are sore!

Woohoo, everything is great so far! feralfeminine - Tainted Love is so beautiful, it looks like a fairy tale! And kazkitty - Dreamscape give me motivation to tackle the mohair I have in my stash, I've been kind of scared of it after making a mess out of a little test bit I spun up. And I love how you spun the silk hankies all bulky - I spun some up once but I did it really thin, I like yours way better!

Here's what I did this week, I haven't set the twist yet but I got some pictures anyway --

Fire (from Fun With Yarn, I'm shamelessly addicted to her colors) - merino / tencel, 100 grams, 332 meters (which seems awfully high, I think I'll double-check the count later). I haven't done the wpi yet, but it seems about dk-ish weight.






This yarn will become a lacy crocheted scarf as soon as it's washed and dried. It's for my oldest friend who has a one-year-old boy and spends most of her time looking after other people's children as well. Last time I spoke to her, she sounded a bit worn out and since she's coming to visit next week, I thought I'd make her something luxurious just for her!

Do you ever just want to stick your nose into a nice pile of fiber or spun yarn and inhale? mmm yarn....

Lubee, your yarn definitely reminds me of peppermint, too! Congrats on the first "skein"

I have been admiring all of your yarns for quite some time.  Here's my first entry.  Rambouillet and silk done on my drop spindle http://bp1.blogger.com/_UeGFXxA0-DI/RcYNUAWtTaI/AAAAAAAAAmQ/NRFD4ydIlBM/s1600-h/P1020534.JPG

 Shocked wow everybody it looks so good!!

Here's my very first entry, I'm so excited!

There I am, hating my life.  I didn't have something in the middle of the ball, so when I tried plying, it plied behind my hand.  I stuck a screwdriver handle in the middle, and the rest was smooth sailing.

That's my mini skein before I got fed up, broke the yarn, and stuck the handle in.  I plied the rest, and it's about 40 yards.  Now I have another ounce left to go, in nice little roving balls on my table.  Maybe I'll do that today, I'm inspired.

Hey everyone,

Great Yarn! It's so cold here in minnesota, that I am locking myself inside today and spinning all day! Here is my addition to Fiber Friday.





I really like that drop spindle!

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.
