Spinning 'til I'm dizzy

Due to the magic of being in a different timezone to most of you, I am able to start this week's thread Smiley

I spun this as a traditional 3 ply from the handdyed Corriedale top I posted in last week's thread. It's really soft and bouncy and lovely! It took a few weeks to spin and as a result isn't quite balanced - when the hank hangs loose the yarn is a little curly.

Lloer, that green is just my sort of color!

Anyway, I wasn't able to participate last week as someone broke into my house and stole my camera (amongst other things) but I have since replaced it and have a bunch of stuff to show:

This is the most recent, with some of the black-striped stuff I got from sheep shed, dyed in shades of blue, purple, and green. I like how it turned out. There are actually 2 skeins of this, but I only took a pic of the one bigger one.


My attempt at Navajo plying in some hand-dyed corriedale. I'm not sure if I like Navajo plying. Anyway, I did it with this yarn because the colors turned out way off from what I wanted, so I wasn't attatched to it if I hated it.


More hand-dyed corriedale, this time leftovers from other piles of roving, spun up and plied together.




I did a lot of dyeing last weekend on the stuff I got from the sheep shed, so I'll have a lot of stuff to spin up. Right now I have some of their 'red mix' on the wheel.

Sorry about the sorta-crappy pictures... it's hard to get good lighting on cloudy days.

I really love your skeins lyme. I love those colors!

It's the first week I have something to show for fiber friday. It's my first skein worth mentionning, but I forgot to take a picture this morning before leaving for work. I hope there will be enough light when I get back home tonight to take a picture!

Wow, I'm sorry about the break in but your yarn is fab, nothing to post this week since I am flying to Italy today and my camera was packed up before I could take pics of anything I spun up.

Here is some mystery wool that I spun up on my new Louet Victoria. It's Navajo plied, and I think I might like that technique the best because I don't have any odd amounts of left over singles.

This was a yarn and fiber dyeing week at my house Smiley  The two skeins I spun up weren't finished until late this week and it has been pouring rain so no pics of those until next week.  Just to give an idea of the volume of dyeing which went on, check out my mannequin buried in fiber p0rn pics Wink
