There are some really great skeins this week.

LUBEE .. i can't wait to see your "Glam I Am" spun up!

fiber sunday?

They were both spun in white and then dyed with Jacquard (?) dye and then plied together.



I do personal swaps!

I can post pics now, so here is the yarn I worked up this week.  I'm currently knitting up a cute little neck warmer with it.  The warm colors are so yummy.   This is spun from Corriedale that I got from Crown Mountain Farms.  It was spun on my Kromski Minstrel and averages 18 - 20 wpi.

Okay, I totally missed Fiber Friday, but the weather wouldn't cooperate to let me photograph my yarns until Sunday! So here are my delayed offerings.

Cornball, a crazy-carded suuuuperbulky yarn with white ingeo coils and granny stacks.

Zoomba, a mix of gold, royal purple, and sky blue wool with natural colored soysilk.

And this is probably the softest yarn I've ever spun...Forest Path (with Bunnies), a blend of forest green merino, merino-silk handdyed by Capistrano Fiber Arts, and fluffs of angora.

These are two yarns I'm planning to use together. One is spun from dyed cotswold locks, and the other from handcarded batts of merino, mohair, and sparkle.

Pretty, Pretty! I love the gold leaf, hope it stays shiny! Great inspiration from Blueprint too, love that mag! I spent the whole weekend dying fiber (dyed about 2.5lbs in 8 different colors) and playing with my drum carder. I think my spinning wheel is feeling neglected, can't wait to get out of work and go home to spin!!!

Wow!  You guys inspire me!!!

I did this one just fiddling around at the farmer's market.

For some Green Bay socks:


I'm not sure if I posted these here or not ...  If I did, I apologize for the duplicity
