And Marlana, Firestarter looks nice and bright and soft too! I'm digging the oranges this week.

Thanks!  I've been going crazy for orange lately.  It's weird, I used to hate orange, but I really love it all of a sudden.

Unfortunately, thanks to midterms last week, my crafting has been pretty slow.  Thankfully, midterms are over - no school for a week!  WOOHOO! Smiley



This is my first plied yarn - it's not perfect, but it's not bad.  Done on a bottom whorl drop spindle, using the generic wool roving that came in the beginner's kit. Smiley

Compared to all the funky, novelty yarns (which are inspirational!!) my yarns look rather bland.

I have no desire to spin or knit (sewing takes up all my free time) but I love looking at this thread. You guys make beautiful yarns. I would just want to collect them all. I wouldn't do anything with them....just have a bunch of bundles of really pretty yarn.  Cheesy

I love Fiber Fridays.  I'm not interested in spinning, either (yet...), but I love seeing the gorgeous yarns everyone dreams up!

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
