I'm so late, but it was finished earlier this week...
This might be the ugliest yarn I've spun...  The pictures make it look much nicer than it is.

Each batt was a totally different colour, but I didn't notice since I do all of my spinning at night...  I loved spinning the fibre but am so sad about the colours Sad  I think I'll switch back to undyed roving for a bit Smiley

Everyone's yarn looks great!  I wish I could spin singles that didn't need to be plied.

Gorgeous Yarns this week - I love the ladies, and Opal, and Robins Nest is beautiful, as well as so many others.  I can't wait to get spinning; have had my wheel for a while but I'm super busy on Christmas gifts at the moment.  I've promised myself that January & February are spinning joy months :p

I'm chiming in late as well.

I've got three yarns, all for Xmas presents:

The first is called Chocolate Strawberry.  It's 100% Alpaca.  I spun a red laceweight and plied it with an undyed single. (1 skein)           



The second is called Northern Lights.  It's 100% wool (corriedale) and SO lovely.  It has blue, teal, grey, brown, black and green in it.  It's Navajo Plied so that it will have a really nice, subtle self-stripe when it's knit up.  I've been going crazy with the self-striping.   (7 skiens)





Finally, this is 100% undyed alpaca.  It's a worsted weight, and absolutely lovely to knit.  It's going to be a scarf for my brother in law. (4 skiens)

maybe you could dunk it in some dye, and revive it?
the colors don't look so bad, but maybe it is just the pictures.
or better yet, use it for test yarn for a project.

I'm so inspired, jealous but inspired.  I have my drop spindles and niddy noddy I ordered online but I can't seem to procure any roving yet  Sad.  All these beautiful yarns are making me that much more anxious lol.
