Guess what? I ordered a loom!  That urged me to get spinning so I'll have a ton of yarn to weave when it arrives.

So I give you Candyland, spun from roving dyed by Marion at Etsy.  It's 100 yards (actually 99, but close enough) and 2.7 oz.  I Navajo-plied it to keep the colors somewhat separate.  Love the effect, but it just eats up the yardage, Roll Eyes



It's been foggy all morning, so pardon the icky flash pic.

So sorry I'm late to the party. My wheel is still broken so I broke out the spindle and spun up some 50/50 merino/tencel blend 29 wpi 300 yards 2 oz

Moody Blues is gorgeous!!!

anneadeline, congrats on the loom!  Weaving is awesome, it goes so quickly and you can really show off the handspun!

Star217 - I hope you can get your wheel fixed soon and I love the look of Moody Blues.

Lufah - I'm looking forward to being able to weave especially for the quickness.  I have to stay with small projects for knitting due to how long it takes or else I lose interest. *glares at blue scarf sitting by the tv*

Ok I cannot wait until next week to share! I finished this up last night and have been carting it around with me all day. *laughs* I just want to snuggle with it!

Treasure Chest.
I plied it with beaded thread and then plied it back onto itself.

 
*No idea as to yardage, or weight. It's huge. most of the single was about the size of my index finger so double that since it's plied onto itself.

I'm bringing sexy back, I think I dropped it somewhere between the donut shop and the Cheesecake Factory.
