Oh, hooray!!!  I finally realized that picture hosting was back in operation! 

Grayling, I loooooove your unnamed romney.

Here's what I've got for the week.  It was pretty productive.  Now that I have my wheel, it's been humming nonstop everyday as soon as I get home from work.   Grin

Tequila Sunset, 50/50 cotton wool mix.  This yarn was super difficult. It was my first experience with anything cotton, so...headache.  But I do like how it turned out.

Pie in the Sky.  Just a simple little two-ply.  88 yards, 100% 64s wool.

Incredible Hulk.  Very green indeed!  Arrrr!  Merino, 255 yards.

Unnamed bubbly skein of poofiness.  This one is all over the place, full of slubs and coils and beehives.  It's Superwash merino, plied with a superskinny superwash purple single.  Only 50 yards, but 50 yards of FUN.   Cheesy


Sleepy Hollow.  I technically completed this one last Friday, but I'm posting it because it's fall and these are autumny colors.  100% merino, 238 yards.

Happy Fiber Friday, everyone!

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.

As always, everyone's yarns are amazing! The colors, the textures, the lovely fo's are making me ohhh and ahhh!

Snowberrylime and I swapped a little roving a few weeks back and she sent me this gorgeous hand-dyed wool- she named it "cinnamon bun".

I am trying my best to finish a pair of socks for my dad before the Secret of the Stole begins. But for me, socks seem to go on and on and on and I tend to catch startitis before they are finished. I managed to fight the urge to spin for 4 days before the call of the roving overpowered me and spun and plied it all in one night. (2ply, 75 yds.)

As soon as the yarn was dry, I cast on for a hat for myself...I now understand the appeal of handspun yarn- I can't believe the difference in feel while knitting. I didn't want it to end!

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

Oooh more great additions, love the bubbly one and the hat, too cute!

I just uploaded my first handspun FO too and wanted to share.  Smiley  Just a simply garter stitch scarf, but it is made all by me.  Smiley  Roving was from Loop on Etsy.

Sea Treasure Scarf: 100 yards, 3oz of alpaca, merino, silk & glitz blend with recycled sari silk

You guys all are such beautiful, such colorful and festive but I am such grey this week. I spun "normal" grey rustic mohair, because I need it. Ve-e-ry soft like feather

Wow! So many knitted items this week - and I've got one too:

fingerless gloves, knit from this yarn:

spun from a batt that contained a ton of stuff - wool, recycled sari silk, sparkle, fabric scraps, mohair, soysilk, and probably a bunch of other things that I forgot.

and, I spun a couple skeins this week, but I'm too lazy to upload more photos to flickr, so I'll just show this one:

Kelpie - self-striping/color-changing yarn spun from BFL wool. It will stripe when knit/crocheted, but the stripes do not repeat, so it also changes colors from one end to the other.
