I finally have time to spin! I spun up two this week to put in my Shop the Swap shop.

All yarns modeled by four-day-old puppies.


Blue Raspberry Popsicle, wool/mohair mill ends dyed by HollyEqq. Super bulky thick and thin, wound up about 75 yards (I'm vexed by this.)




Candy Buttons, 65 yars of super soft merino by Fleece Artist, plied against itself.





Gratuitous shot of the roving I purchased while travelling. The one on the right became Candy Buttons, and the other two haven't been touched yet.

My first Fiber Friday!  I learned how to spin about month ago and since then, I can't seem to keep my hands off of the wheel.


100% wool, 2-ply


Wool/Silk Blend


100% Handpainted Merino wool

I am really enjoying spinning and might I add that you all have produced some really nice yarn this week!  Thanks for letting me share my addiction.

Holy crap the colors this week are amazing! Great Job everyone Cheesy

My few from summer vacation:

First is masham and a llama/cormo blend; 2ply; about 88 yards



Next is MEGA BLUE, random wool and mohair blend that I spun extreamly bulky...the sad thing is I wanted to break out my spindle since I've used my wheel for the past .... 4 months since I've gotten it and this is how I did...lmao! I think I managed 15-25 yards..



This was roving that I dyed with kool-aid and then spun into a light-heavy worsted; single; I think I have 140 or 150..not sure; llama/wool/silk blend



This I also dyed with kool-aid and is the same blend as the one above, just different colors. I tried to spin it like Holly[misshawklet] spins her singles...I failed Ha! I told her that once you train youself to spin thin..it's hard to go back; single; 50-52 yards




One of my favorites and a dream to spin; I call it chocolate covered strawberries Cheesy ; single; 120+ yards; pink-merino and brown/black- llama/cormo blend



MY FAVORTIE!!! This was spun from roving from a California Red sheep, I got it from the only person in Virginia[where I live] who has this breed in the whole state. It feels so coarse at first but when you spin it up it is a nice solid but still fluffy and soft yarn. It is an oatmeal color with small hairs that look like guard hairs that are shades of fire red all the way to raspberry...this picture does no justice it's amazing Cheesy ; 2ply; pretty even light to medium worsted; 100+ yards; from 2oz. of roving



Thanks for letting me participate, can't wait till next week Cheesy

Miss Violaceous - OMG.  Puppy.  I like to scroll through the thread first to look at pictures, and when I saw your puppy I just about died.  So tiny, so cute!

Yeah, such fantastic colors!

I've been spinning a lot since I have a booth at one of my town's events in September.  I'll try to get some pictures today.
