one of those skein is last weeks. and I dyed it all the week before. And Lody, you just made my day!

I forgot to say that I REALLY like Rusty Ewe and Caterpillar Tango is WAY fun!

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.

Beautiful yarns as always. 

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!

I've wondered about this a lot too!  I was wondering if it is b/c of how thin I'm spinning at the moment?  It's so hard to tell from photos how thick or thin a yarn is. 

Either that or I'm just slow! Cheesy

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

I spin fairly bulky, and often- extra bulky.  I'm spoiled, and love to use yarns that knit super-fast.

that said, I can spin 3-4 skeins in one day... but that doesn't include dyeing the day before and setting the day after.

I'm just now looking at this, I'm waaaay behind this week!

Everything is amazing, I'd say amazing as usual, but I think it's more amazing than usual!

I added the puppy picture to my favorite items crafted by others Wink

Also, I don't suppose any of you coil-masters would like to post a little tutorial with pictures of making one of your coily yarns?  I get the concept, I think, but I wouldn't mind seeing a couple pictures 'in process'.

the alien colored yarn is my favorite.  Smiley
you mean mine?  Or is that totally wrong? Cause I thought you meant mine, and I was all about to cry when I read that.  Cry
But in a good way... Grin

Ok, I've never even SEEN that issue of KnittySpin *facepalm*

When did knitty start doing the spinning stuff too, so I can hit up all the back issues I've apparently missed?
