This is my first Fibre Friday Smiley And my 2nd spinning project

I used Brown tones mill end roving from the sheep shed studio.  It was really nice to spin with.
I started out with an lb.  I'm not sure how much I used but here is a before and after shot of my bag of roving.


My spinning is getting a bit more even and I'm learning how to draft as I spin.
Here are my two bobbins.


I plyed them together (first time for that) and I think it turned out pretty well Smiley
Here are my skeins, together they are around 50m long.


I think I am going to make something out of it for my boyfriend, he really likes brown Smiley

I love both the natural brown tones and the burst of color! I kind of went for the natural look this week too... with a little color thrown in...

Some natural-colored mill ends, blue and olive faux cashmere (nylon) with a little bit of blue and green firestar (sparkly nylon), plied with clear thread.




Can't wait to see the rest. Have a great weekend!

Fantastic stuff, everyone! I've missed posting on Fiber Fridays, but I'm always lurking and admiring.

Over the winter break, I spun up a storm and got some good practice with my new handcards. Here are my most recent yarns that I blended and spun. (visit http://flickr.com/photos/reporebo/ for more details and pics)





And here are some yarns I spun using batts and roving purchased by various sellers (again, more details and pics on http://flickr.com/photos/reporebo/)

yay!  This has been drying for days, but got it all skeined up for fiber friday!

http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/00056eq1

One ply is a mystery roving (someone gave me a bunch of unlabeled stuff, and this is, I think, the last of it), which due to the shine probably has silk in it.  The other blue is black walnut dyed columbia blended with some white merino, and some traces of kool-aid green columbia left on the drum carder from the previous carding (it was intentional.... for once!)

I really love your blending job, grayling40, the colors really suit each other.  And the riot of colors is lovely, jazzturtle.  Those types of yarn are so amazing, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try to make one.  And your yarn is lovely, Jadzy, very impressive for a second spinning project.  It's great how natural color roving has its own variations!  But I've been using a wheel since November and I'm not sure I'm that even yet.

Reporebo that blue boucle is devine.

Here's my contribution for the day "Snow Day"
I carded up some batts with merino, angora and angelina and spun using a long draw. I then wound a center pull ball and plied the yarn back on itself. Then I fulled the yarn by shocking it (using hot and cold water) and then I beat the snot out of it whacking it against every hard surface in my bathroom  Wink
I have 130 yards 2.4 ounces dk weight. Its has alot more sparkle in person thanks to the angelina.

Beautiful color blends everyone!

Ugh, okay so this is what happens when I don't spin for months:


Neither have had their twist set yet, obviously.  The one on the left is a few yrds I needed to finish my DH's fingerless gloves.  And the one on the right, well, I don't even know what to say.  I tried to make an "ugly" yarn to knit a monster.  The yarn was to thin after plying so I tried to cable it (4 ply) and now I have a measly 44 yrds.  Not to mention my puppy get a hold of the center pull ball I had it in to ply it and it took me hours to sort that mess out!

So, my puppy is going in to get fixed next week and I want to knit and felt her a stuffy to take with here since she obviously liked the yarn so much!  I was thinking maybe a little bone but I am not good at making up patterns.  Does anyone have any tips to get me started with a bone shape?  Also would I need to stuff it pre or post felting?  Any tips to help me selvage this disaster would be MUCH appreciated!

I love everything so far, especially the yellow monster yarn disaster - it kind of looks like Ramen noodles.  Smiley

This week my goal was to spin a 4-ply yarn.  I started out with these:



And spun them into this:





Then I was able to get a little skein of 3-ply:



When I was down to just 2 plies, I tried holding them together like one yarn and navaho plying them.  This turned out to be a big stressful mess, but I actually kind of like the result, even though I have weird curly bits of yarn randomly poking out here and there:



And, since it's navaho plied, I guess that means that this is a 6-ply yarn.  Crazy!

Finally, here's the wee little bit of the remaining yarn, navaho plied against itself.



Next week's yarn is probably *not* going to be a 4-ply.  Smiley  Oh, my 2 skeins of the 4-ply yarn weighed (in total) almost 16 ounces and measures 266 yards.

Every yarn is beautiful as always!

Isamax you might try making a scalloped edge for each side of the bone with only two scallops!) and then decrease a couple under each side of the scallop then just knit even to the other side and repeat. Make two and seam it together. At least that's what it looks like in my head, and I admit, it's sometimes a little strange in there!

Lufah that is AMAZING! I don't even have a clue about how to do four ply. It looks incredible. Wow.

Hey everybody!

Lufah - I love the four ply. I had never thought about using four different colours to do that...have to try it.

I have two this week:



The Grape Escape - Romney - aprox 110 yards...don't know what to do with it yet. Any ideas?



Dust Bunnies - a crazy yarn that I spun from some random, semi soft, white fleece and some random other bits. I found the colourfull bits in a bag at a thrift store for a dollar. I bet I have atleast a pound of the stuff and am not sure what I will do with the rest. It's pretty short fiber bits which makes it pretty hard to spin with. I knit it into a cuff and have enough left to knit another one.



Until next week...

Jazzturtle- Happy Scrappy makes me Happy! Smiley lol
Jadzy- VERY nice 2nd project, I'm impressed!

Here are my contributions:

"Balls of Fun at Mardi Gras" COTTON BALL yarn (inspired by bean15  Smiley) plied with Lion Brand Trellis done on my drop spindle!


My first attempt at Kool Aid dying, just some old 100% virgin fishermans wool I got at the thrift store for $1 with 3 packets of Cherry!


2nd attempt at Kool Aid Dying, 1st attempt at dying the roving, I think I did pretty darn good!  Smiley


And finally introducing "Stella" my NEW Antique wheel!

My closest LYS is about 50 minutes away so I drove down there last night and have the owner check her all out, we have some "tweaking" to do but she is totally in usable condition, I'm SO excited to learn on a wheel...I will probably invest in a newer wheel in the future but for right now she is all I have and I love her! She has so much character!!!

Okay, Lufah, you are blowing my mind...again!  I would need 2 lazy kates to do a four-ply.  Plus another bobbin, of course.  I LOVE your result(s)!!

Pmpknpunk, what a lovely new wheel!

So most of last week and part of this one I was working on a commission.  Took me for. Ever.


Impressionist  I spun a skein of Impressionist yarn not too long ago, and here are all of its friends.  Smiley  Mostly merino, with a dash of superwash, 632 yards, 1 lb. 2.5 oz, bulky. 


Graham Cracker Crust 100% alpaca, 300 yards, sport weight.


Hard Candy 100% merino, 151 yards, 3.9 oz, bulky.

Yay!  Happy fiber friday, everyone!

Nicolassa, I just used an old cardboard printer-paper box from Staples, poked holes in the sides, ran some stiff wire through (or you can use thin knitting needles), and placed my bobbins on that.  Instant lazy kate!

Can't help with the extra bobbins, though (unless you wanted to wind your yarn off onto toilet paper tubes - I did that when I was using the drop spindle, but it's kind of a pain in the butt).  Smiley

I hope it's okay to ask this, sorry if it's a dumb quesiton  Undecided If I wanted to buy more bobbins, do I have to buy specifically for my wheel or is there a certain size or what? I feel like I need more bobbins because the ADD I have when knitting seems to have crept  into my spinning now as well. I have a Louet s60 if that helps.

Jadzy- that's pretty impressive for you first Fiber Friday. Great Job. Lufah, I can't believe you made a 6 ply yarn. I really love the colors. The Orange and purple look great with just that bit of grey.
This week I made Manic, a super bulky rainbow and hot pink yarn. It's blindingly bright,lol.

Yes you should buy bobbins for you wheel, most wheels take different size bobbins.

First up, an art yarn I spun for the Fiber Friday group on Ravelry. The mod gives a theme on Friday and then people post their yarns on that theme during the week. Last week was "Ocean", so I spun this, "Atocha":



There's tons of fibers in there: flax, cotton, bamboo, a couple of different hand dyed rovings, some turquoise mill ends, black alpaca, silk, mohair, silver glitz. Oh, and recycled turquoise nylon from a pair of vintage tights!

Here's a swatch:



Another yarn I spun this week is from a roving I dyed a long time ago, called "Sea Juice". I tried out the technique of spinning a thick single, fulling and then spinning in the opposite direction. It worked really well!



And lastly, here's some Corriedale I dyed with Kool-Aid and Wiltons; it's for a feather and fan shawl. I'm going to ply it with a brown Corriedale single:



Great yarns this week, everyone! I <3 Fiber Friday.

Last weekend, I ended up with about 40 lbs of raw rambouillet from a local farm...so I've been washing a lot of wool this week!



I only spun one skein from it so far:





Seafoam - spun from rambouillet dyed in shades of seafoam and driftwood. Most was carded with pale seafoam soysilk, but I spun in lots of bubbly textured sections of raw uncarded rambouillet locks.

Some other skeins I spun:



Fence Sitter



Soft Hearted - bamboo! It's in two skeins, one plied with invisible thread and one single ply.

I haven't done any spinning in ages and then after a spin in public thing at my LYS to promote spinning this past Sunday, I haven't stopped.

I received a Funky Carolina fiber sampler of 12 different colors and fibers. They're being spun into fingering weight skeins of 4 fibers each and will be knit into a shawl.


left to right: soysilk, merino (green), superwash BFL, falkland


right to left across middle section:  BFL, superwash merino, tencel, superfine adult alpaca (the blue starts the merino again)





I love the two skeins together. I'm working on the third skein, which is faux cashmere (nylon), two colors of superwash merino and a merino/tencel blend.





The brown skein is a navajo plied Falkland from Fat Cat Knits named Lars in the Sun. The purple is a two-ply superwash merino, Nightmare from Funky Carolina.


Merino, commercially prepared/dyed top. 350-ish yards light fingering weight.

The second sampler skein & Lars still need to be set, but I'm putting it off until I have the third skein done.

Star 217 - Beautiful!  what does fulling do the final texture of the yarn?

Isamax - I love the green monster yarn!
Garyling Your colors perfectly matched my mood today blue and gray and dark with little bright spots.

Lufah I love your combinations.  When I Navajo ply I get those weird little nubs, too.  But theyre kind of cute, and theyre usually soft.   I have a ribbed brown hat I knit out of some yarn that I Navajo plied, posted on my blog.

Luxx I like the cuff!  Can you use your bits to needle felt little pices that you could then spin into your yarn or use to adorn other pieces?

Cottondeer- I love what you did with sea juice!  That must have taken a lot of time.

Edna I love the colors in your sampler yarn!


Yeay for Fiber Friday!

This was from the 'Make yarn out of this' swap and of course it is over there in the gallery, but I love it so much I have to show it off again.

over 4 oz, about 150 yards. Two kinds of wool, inego, blue jean shreds, cut up indigo dyed fabric (from Africa!) and beads.

All the yarn is so pretty this week, as usual!

I have two this week.  The first is about fingering to worsted weight thick and thin with pretty barber poles.  It's about 240 yds.


The second is thick and thin singles, about 140 yds.  They're both superwash wool.


I still don't have enough posts for pictures!

The past two tuesdays i've gone to a spinning class... here is the result

the left one is my attempt at ply-ed yarn.. the right one is my first ball.. ever.. (the very very thin stuff my teacher did) it's hard to tell what it looks like in such small balls.. but i'm pretty proud.  I was the first one to get how to do it, in class .. and the first to ply.. i think i'm a natural Wink  (the colors are a little darker in person)

everyone ones yarns look beautiful! i can't wait till i'm where you guys are

Perfect!  I have seen you vision  Grin  I used some scrap yarn to test the pattern.  I started seaming the end before I thought to take a pic of it pre felted.  It just came out of the washer and will need to be "groomed" before I give it to her!  Thanks so much, its just what I was looking for!  Kiss

oh my goodness i can't list any specific yarns that i love because i love too many!  so much amazing creativity and beauty!  man, i love yarn so much...

here is my only handspun skein for the week:





i called it "olive ocean" but i'm not so sure about the name... it's a mini-skein, just practicing a little bit, about 40 yards.  i think it will become a neck warmer.

this week i also used my wheel to ply together a couple yarns from unraveled sweaters.  this is one strand of a wool/angora blend, hand-dyed with kool-aid, plied with a strand of 100% cotton. about 65 yards.

I posted this in a different thread, but I'd like to post these in the actual Fiber Friday, if that's okay.

Spearmint Rainbow - 140 yards spun from mill ends.  Approx 2 oz.



Nostaliga - Spun from B&W mill ends, and I loves it.  I haven't measured the yardage, but I think there's about 3 oz total.



My fave for the week, Poseidon - 750 yds, 100% Tussah Silk, 4.4 oz.  I <3 this yarn.



Finally, Newfie Sunrise (renamed) - 235 yds (now that I've finished the second skein), 3 oz, sock weight superwash.  Smiley





Lovely yarns this week, everybody!  I really can't pick just one.  It's like Lays chips!!!!

Lovely stuff, all! I didn't get any spinning done this week, but hopefully tonight I will be able to sit down get some done!

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.

Yeah I think it'd be a cute idea to have a regular thing where we can show off our handspun creations and share inspiration. A lot of my skeins just end up in the display case cos I've no idea what to do with them. Though I did just by one of the 101 One Skein pattern books to get some ideas.

Wow! It's like you were inside my head! That's exactly what it looked like! that is too cool! Cheesy Do show a pic of it felted, I'd love to see that as well.

After 1 day of loving she chewed a hole and pulled the stuffing out of the end!  Lesson learned.  Next time I will double yarn so the felt will be thicker. Oh well, at least I have the pattern now!  Thanks again for your help.
