Thanks DB and RM!! I love "garage sale" darlingbud - so great! And RM - you amaze me how quickly you've picked up spinning and already have such beautiful yarns.

and thanks motleycruiser - I keep swapping these rainbow yarns instead of listing them in etsy! You give me a good idea, and I'll work on it.  Smiley

RM got to say I'm loving your "favorite things" mixed media yarn!  So awesome!!!  Sadly, while my husband is very understanding about my crafting, my toddler and baby have decided that the spinning wheel being pulled out is an excuse to start fussing immediately Sad  Hope to have something to share soon Wink

Thanks, and Oh boy, can I relate!!!  My 3 yr. old daughter is terribly jealous of all my crafts and my craft friends!

Good luck with getting back to spinning!!!

ok. still don't have my pix yet. maybe in a couple hours. later tonight. BUT I did want to say I see a lot of yarn pix on here (love that! the more the merrier!!!!) but I've noticed that some people have a lot of trouble with color/lighting, etc.
I've recently put together a very inexpensive light tent to combat just that problem. Works like a charm! =0)  So any and all questions can be directed my way.
Or if enough of you are interested, I can post in a new thread so we can do it that way. And show our results. sound interesting?

Got another one. This is... super thin. I want to say sock weight-ish. Im so excited to have spun this thin!

I think Im going to leave it as a single despite it being so thin because I really dont want to lose the yardage. If I ply it, it'll have to be with something else.

This is Disco Lights. 88 yards of loveliness. She's a wool, silk angelina blend. I love this picture forgive the weird glare. I still suck at taking photos. Roll Eyes

Lovely yarns, everyone! 

I do think we need that tutorial that you offered, Patchy.  Please do send me a PM, or I guess posting a link in this thread to a tut you post somewhere else would be good...whichever one is easier.

Later!
