I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Bravo!!! 

Well done everyone! You all are really making me miss my wheel that has recently been put away in the closet since our new puppy arrived!  I think I will have to introduce them soon..

Ok- so I know it is way past friday but I am going to include my pic for the week anyhow. I spun this up over the last week on the drop spindle and then used my wheel to ply. Long story- wheel goes only one way because I can't seem to figure out how to keep the stupid bolt  that was used in the correct place to go both ways- It tightens the opp. direction-whatever-The fiber was from a yummy swap "Can you make yarn out of this.." and my buddy was Christy_Cooper. Go Christy!! Also- I have never made a plied yarn so it's my first. I used the top of the spice jar to seperate the plies..

Here is what I started with- a neato assortment of wools and a silk cap, some tussah silk
and here is the finished product

the pics are also on the Swap Gallery but I am sorta proud of it so I wanted to share it... Grin

This is from Carol Lee's #1 wool roving.  A deeper burgandy than what shows on her page.  Paul fell in love with it immediately and asked for a toque.  There is 366 yards of double ply, about 16 wpi:
   


This is 481 yards, about 25 wpi. I carded about 50/50 corriedale with the blue from Carol Lee's #1 wool roving.  The pictures don't show the true color, which is more a purple than a blue.  These will be knitted into socks for me:
 


A bulkier weight, heavy worsted double ply, about 220 yards.  It is Carol Lee's olive green #1 roving carded with Carol's black mill ends (that she always throws in for free).  The bits of yellow, orange, red are randomly placed soy silk:
