Lyme-I looove both your color combinations
Knitwit-mango tree is excellence
Feralfeminine-thistle is beautiful

I spun the following for the sweat shoppe swap.  Never again!  At least not while in law school-it was a week of absolutely no sleep.
A spring sort of colorway, mill ends:

navajo plied mill ends

it's a fricke dt. I LOVE IT! my first wheel and I'm still all, "I can't BELIEVE spinning can go so FAST!?!?!"  It's like, 4oz of roving would take me a week to spin on my spindle. Now it's like 45 minutes and it's gone! Kinda sad in a way, but FUN! =0)

yeah, She needs a name. At least I think she's a girl.  Seems like most things are anyway.thanks for the help! =0)

How about a name from spinning mythology? That site has a list of spinning goddesses.

I named my blog after Frigg. Wink

Everyone's yarns look fantabulous this week, as always. I'm always amazed at the fantastic colors! I think I'm on week 2 or 3 of sitting out. I've been spinning a little, but so busy prepping fiber. I miss it!
