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

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!

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.
