All of the fiber this week is just gawjus, as usual. but I have to say, that feralfeminine's braided hand dyed roving picture won my "computer screen background of the week" contest. I had a really hard time choosing though. To tell you the truth, I didn't want to get rid of my one from last week  Wink

This Fiber Friday is extra special for me because this yarn was spun on my new Victoria. It took me a while to get used to the speeds and to adjust the tension the way I like it but little Vicky Irsabo (I named her Irsabo because my tax refund and bonus from job helped pay for her, get it?) is a little trooper. Anyhoo, enough talk, more yarn...

This is around 150 yards of navajo plied Corriedale roving. I dyed it using wiltons and I wasn't crazy about it when I dyed it but now, eh, it's growing on me. I would've had more to show if it hadn't been for two coveted knitting books coming this week (Yarn Harlots & Charlene Schurch). Dontcha just luv fiber friday?

Okay, this is how out of touch I've been - I didn't even know Craftster had started a dyeing board.  I am clueless.  I have no defense, besides being really busy.  But yay!  A dyeing board!  It's about time!

I lost my spinning mojo for a while, but now I think I have it back - here's about 4 oz, 370 yards of hand-dyed superwash merino roving.

The color is Banana Cabana.  Smiley  And I've missed everyone, and love seeing everyone's yarns this week - the alien colored yarn is my favorite.  Smiley

Ok, this one is a spoiler, so I hope my swap partner isn't lurking. I mean, it's on it's way and all but...




Anyway, I'm SUPER excited about this yarn. Like as proud of it as I was about my first spun. And then my first plied.

It's something woolly that I dyed with orange and strawberry koolaid. I named it OB Sunset because um, it really looks like that, all reds and pinks and yellows when the sun goes down over the Pacific. Aw, now I'm getting all nostalgic.
there's two skeins there, a total of about 4 oz. I forgot to count the yardage or do a wrap test.

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Wow!  Everything looks spectacular today!  I've had only a few chances to spin over the past couple of weeks due to my worsening semester Sad

Here's what I have:


Spumoni: bold and bright fruit-salad colors plied with black crochet thread.


Caterpillar Tango: uncarded natural grey/brown wool with giant coils of glittery neon.



Glow Worm: hand dyed purples with sparkly seafoam tussah silk cocoons, confetti flag yarn, and candy striping threads.

Wow, I'm really impressed at how some of you guys on this thread can make several skeins in just a week's time... I'm lucky if I can finish one!

yes!!  Here we are:



here is that amy tan yarn.  It has 79 yards in it, and is Navajo plied.  I have about 2 more ounces of this to spin.



this one is called Construction Paper turkey.  it is merino, and contains 49 yards.  It is also Navajo plied.  This is just a nice test skein, and I have 3.5 more ounces left.



This doesn't have a name, but it's the same as the first two.  There are 43 yards in this skein, and I just finished plying a skein that is probably in the 80-100 yard range Smiley
