Ok- here is one skein I made from my arty fiber stash...

Again, this was my first time plying and I did the singles on my spindle and the ply on the wheel. I carded the fibers on my drum carder to combine all the types of wools and silk I got in my stash. Smiley

ooh, the purple looks really good! Smiley

I'm glad you liked it; I tried really hard to coordinate the purples when I sent it out. Smiley

I tried to get the glint of the silk in too but alas I can't seem to quite get the hang of yarn photography..It complements the yarn and adds a nice shine. I like how the bright pink puffed out too. I think that was the targhee (the fluffy small balls in the stash not the neon pink softer stuff). I am going to do more with the silk cap because I used only a bit of it and lots of the tussah so I will do the beads and goodies in that skein. Yea Us!!

christy, I LOVE the locks in that! I got locks in my goodies from adriennec and I have never spun them. Now I am so excited.  I will get pictures as soon as I can of my new stash from adriennec!
locks, two braids of wensleydale teeswater sliver by fleece artist some sparkles and beads PLUS some pretty inego, which I have also never spun. PLUS all of it should fit through the orifice of my wheel so I can spin it all up on there.

Let's see if this works. MJ posted pics in her flickr of the finished yarn. It turned out really pretty. Cheesy

Wow loudxmouse - that lot is gorgeous.  I didn't know that Fleece Artist did fibres - I have some of thier yarn and it is dreamy.  I can't wait to see what you're going to make.

I'm slowly working on spinning up the gorgeous merino Lizzie sent me, will do progress pics soon.
