My spinning for the week:

It's called Mansfield Park, because that's what was on PBS as I finished spinning it.
1.5 oz, 270 yards.  The wool was given to me, I'm not sure exactly what it is.

Gem Sweater is gorgeous, it reminds me very much of a beautiful sweater my mom knit years ago.

I love love love electric goldfish.  Also Mermaid's merkin.

I love looms.

By that reasoning, I should be calling this "The Breakfast Club."   Cheesy  But I'd already named it Zurov.  More sock yarn.  This is my first dye and spin (and knit) roving, and I love it.  It's got a lot more yellow-green than the picture lets on.  Must go to bed now. I've been spinning like crazy, because I need to start knitting tomorrow.

Hello everybody, this week I spun twilight, 156 yards of black Merino Wool, plied with some silk I dyed last month. I love this yarn. Fiber Friday always gives me an incentive to put my skeins out there. Thanks Craftster! Grin

I didn't get any spinning done this week (we're all sick!), but I wanted to say that I LOVE everybody's yarns this week.  How beautiful!

Due to technical difficulties I wasn't able to post until now, but I swear, my skeins were done on Friday!  Smiley  Here's what I've got (and forgive the weird pictures - I had accidentally left my camera to photograph in the RAW format, and was too lazy to retake the pictures once I realized, so I just went ahead and converted them into an HDR image.  In real life, the yarn does not glow, although that would be cool):

The beige and pinky skeins are a total of 195 yards and 11 1/4 ounces, and the pink skein is the leftover yarn navaho plied - 61 yards and 2 1/4 ounces.  The beige and pink yarn is really soft and fluffy, since I spun some really fat areas of the beige ply.

Also, I really, really, really love Picasso's Paintbrush and Electric Goldfish.  Smiley

wow! everyone's yarn looks soo pretty!

here's my contribution.  i missed last friday (which was the top left "sunset" one) i just recently got my own wheel.  which has made my addiction worse.  Smiley

here are the pictures to prove it

the top left "sunset" , bottom right "georgia strait" and left "fresh straw" (blue faced leicester) are all from Yummy Yarns on etsy ( http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5106294 ).  the top right, which i call nautical is from Birkeland Bros.( http://www.birkelandwool.net/ ) (the white is a cross breed mix, and the blue is a perendale)
