Well. Technically it's not quite friday where I am, but it is in most other places!

I finally finished a handspun project - and I had to spin extra yarn to finish it!  The ball of yarn on the keyboard in the photo collage is all I have left after binding off!



It's a wing of the moth shawl - spun from merino & angora with some sparkle - unfortunately no matter what I do, I can't get the sparkle to appear in the photos

I'm now contemplating spinning for another lace project....

Can't wait to see everyones creations (unless you guys are all quiet and resting up for Rhinebeck.  *sigh* I wish I could Rhinebeck!)

That shawl looks wonderful! That must have been a lot of work (spinning and knitting)!

What I've finished this week:

children and snow: it's 50/50 merino/silk, wonderful soft, but a bit hard to draft for a beginner like me, the fibres are soooooo long
it's plyed with metallized accompanying yarn for knitting
160m/94g

and:

toxic delilah: merino wool handdyed with kool aid
212m/95g so far but there's still something on my wheel

oh, the 50-50 looks gorgeous - and if you're spinning that evenly there's no way you're still a "beginner" Cheesy

I still love that shawl!  That yarn was perfect for that pattern Cheesy  I wish I lived close enough to go to Rhinebeck  Cry

I have been spinning and dying like crazy recently.  All the yarns are sock weight.

Harvest Surprise (this one already sold)


Dusty Rose


Technologic (this one is my favorite)


And then some of what I dyed

Anubis



And Opal (dyed for a dying challenge)
