I don't knit, spin or crochet or do anything that involves yarn really.
But I always look forward to fiber fridays.

All the yarn is so vibrant and beautiful. I think I need to take up a new craft!

This is my first ever Fiber Friday and these are my first yarns ever spun on a wheel! (I got my wheel on Tuesday night!)

This one is my Cardamom Latte. The darker color is actually dyed with a cardamom tea!

This is Saturnalia.. It is dyed with all natural dyes that I learned from a class I took in college about natural dyeing. The red is madder root, green is turmeric with indigo dyed over it, and then the orangey bit is turmeric with a bit of the madder on top.

grayling40 - I loooooove photograph! I love black and white combinations, now I've seen your yarn I have to try to make a black white yarn too...
gypsy03 - that bamboo looks wonderful. Is it as soft as it looks? I would knit some handwarmers with it... But I want to knit handwarmers out of every lovely handspun... That way you can admire it all the time when you're wearing it!  Cheesy
kniterdone - I'm really in love with your blue yarn! I nearly drooled on my keyboard (well I wasn't even using my computer when I first saw it so I had to scroll on quickly  Wink)
frankierevolver - your yarn looks great and so even! I really admire that... How thick is it, it looks very thin to me (I wish I could spin really fine yarn...)

Um the first one is 14 wpi (sport weight)  Smiley  and thanks! I was excited it turned out so well for how new it was to me.

I haven't posted in while, but I have been busy. 

I love the copper sparkle in this one.

I sure wish I took a pic of this yarn before I knit it. The yarn is a two ply and was spun from scraps of wool roving and locks.  I love it!

Thanks for the compliments!

hpy_sparrow: I think I posted this a few weeks ago, but here's Photograph ver. 1:

I like this one better, but version 2 is cool, too  Wink  I just ordered the black and white roving from Sheep Shed Studio and spun it undyed. Version 1 (my first order from them) had a lot more blacks and grays in it, and the version 2 roving (a separate order) was mostly white with a big black streak.

This is so much fun!  All these yarns remind me more and more that I need to run to my favorite little knitting shop and pick up new needle sizes.

Frankierevolver, I want those lovely natural-dyed yarns so badly!  The bottom one would make a really cute hat or vest.
