Everything looks awesome as usual.  Lufah, your handspun handwoven fabric looks AMAZING!  Also, 'Canopy' is giving me all sorts of ideas for add-ins and accessorizing my yarn, which is all I can think about these days...

Here are mine for the week (the week being Monday through today, as most of last weekend's yarns are under my Spinning Wheel Honeymoon post Wink

Anyway, first is from Copperpot Woolie's "Cry Baby" roving, 4 oz, who knows how many yards, worsted/bulky weight:


Secret Garden, a Hobbledehoy LOLBatt, 1.5 ounces, under 100 yards, thick and thin:

Closeup:


And here is my spin-in-progress.  From a 4 oz roving from Mary Jan's Attic, called Water Lilies (i think...)  This single is at like... who knows what weight, all I know is I don't come close to yarn this thin!  It *should* be worsted weight when plied, but we'll see.  This wool just wanted to be thin, so I let it...but it's taking FOREVER.


Happy Spinning to all!!!

So many beauties... so hard to pic faves...
I didn't get much spinning done this week, and none on my wheel. I played with my drop spindle at work one day and actually got it to work. I had been given a drop spindle kit by a friend who found out she was allergic.  The wool in it was really coarse and I couldn't get it to spin in the air at all when I tried it last year & that was kinda frusterating. I tried it with some of my hand dyed superwash merino and it made such a difference. It was fun too!

Happy "Friday" everyone.. LOL!!  I"m a bit late..  I'm posting from Chicago, as we've been doing wedding stuff all weekend.. and it's only SAT!!  Yesterday we took 500 engagement photos downtown WOOT!!!  It was so fun!!  Bryan is in the shower now, and then we are going to cake tasting... at EIGHT AM!!!  I think I can manage eating cake at 8 am LOL!!
I have a few this week..  I tried to manage my new home buyer stress and taxes stress by spinning..   Tongue
My first is 100% bamboo, wrapped with a holographic sparkley thread. 
Very Berry
156 yards, 4 oz




The next is my fave of the week.. I think.  It's a 3 oz batt set, from  Hobbledehoy.  I spun it thick and thin, and then plied it with a rayon thread that changes from light green to dark green, beehives, coils and bright silk flowers
105 yards in both skiens
Perfect Garden, 3.5 oz





Mocha, 300 yards superfine corridale, 6 oz



Snowflakes, 250 yards pure tencel, 4 oz



This was spun from some fun rainbow batts from Mandalinn.  I spun it thick/thin and wrapped it with a peweter holographic thread
After the Storms, 119 yards, 3 oz




Spring Days
67 yards, 100% hemp.  4 oz 
This was my first time spinning hemp.  It's a bit coarse, but it softens in the wash.  I LOVE it!!



Finally, this was spun from my March ArtClub batt.  It's thick/thin, plied with coils and beehives and purple silk flowers all around a green metallic thread
Purple Pansies, 74 yards, 3.5 oz

Jazzturtle, "very berry" looks JUST like a bowl of freshly picked, washed, sparkling berries in June!  Great job!  The rest are amazing as usual too.  I can't wait to get a jumbo flyer kit so I can shove things like plastic flowers through the orifice Wink  Have fun in Chicago this weekend, hopefully the sun will come out for you!!  And hopefully there won't be anymore earthquakes or cougars! (I live in Logan Square; the current events in Chicago are mystifying these days!!)

The flowers I use are silk, so they easily fit thru the oriface..  but yea.. when I do ones with stems, I ahve to work things around the oriface.. .

We had beautiful weather for our photos.. Friday was just perfect.  I know how crazy chitown weather can be.. I'm a native.. only being here in NC for the past few years..  I love how things can be sunny one day and snowing the next..  just chicago charm LOL!!  That's why our wedding is inside.. i'm not risking the ceremony on crazy chicago weather!! HA!
