Two weeks ago I finally bought Intertwined.  Here are my inspired yarns...

My first try at adding pom poms. The four pom poms were handmade from my scrap stash.
It was also my first try at wrapping my single with thread, although you cant see it in this picture.



My first try at spinning with fabric with uncarded locks.



My first core spun with uncarded locks.


Off white combed top, copper mohair locks, and several different fabrics.


Another in my Christmas series.


Lastly, hell yea I recycle! Super scrap coils!
I have been saving all my yarn scraps that were at least 12 long for past 6 yrs. About once a year I would spend a day tying them together never sure what I was going to with them. It was so much fun spinning this yarn and watching what yarn of projects past would be uncovered next on the giant ball!
1 of 3 scrap series

I am clueless about spinning - so I have an immense appreciation of those who do.  All of these are so pretty, but I am most intrigued by the one with the fabric in it, and the last one.  What a great idea, and a fun yarn.  I'd LOVE to work with either of them.  I bet they would make deliciously interesting projects.

Also, the first one is so pretty.  I love the colors and the way it shines. 

Very nice work!

That scrap yarn is huge! Very impressive!

I haven't participated in a while so here is an update:

Part one of my new boys toys series: Cars (next is tools)


Blue princess featuring 4 different colours of sequins and other shiny things:


A self-striping 2 ply yarn made from plant dyed wool:


Liquid gold, an old favourite of mine which I have spun again, pure hand dyed tussah silk:


Purple sea monster, mainly bues and greens but little bits of purple on Merino/silk (50/50):


Steppenwüste, a fun yarn made from Leicester locks, green cotton, 2 types of linen and hemp:


...and last but not least something a little different to my usual yarns, the Queen of Acid punk, a really bright 2ply yarn with coils:


Plus there are a few yet to be photographed, which could all be classed as 'Ultimate luxury'.... sparkly, silky and fluffy!

Bye,
Veronika

This week I get to show off some hand-dyed handspun (you can see pics of the dyed roving here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=234418.0!) Yay!  They are all singles so far, all done on my drop spindle:

This was from a green & yellow corriedale roving I painted, about 60 yards, avg. worsted weight:


Another one i painted, which I named Amazon, for obvious reasons!  Also avg worsted weight, 77 yards:


Here is a sample-sized LOOP batt (Ribbon Dance) spun up into light worsted/DK- 50 yards- words can't describe how beautiful this stuff is!!


And one more- from Copperpot Woolies (Beyond the Realm), a nice fat merino, 101 yards:


Snuggling yarns! (They're all green- can you tell spring is on my mind?)


I can't wait to do more this weekend!  Hooray!  I have *got* to try that scrap yarn!

Yay Friday!! Snowberrylime, I'm especially loving yours. I have a few to share this week, plus some batts and a new project featuring my handspun.

First up is Wupatki II, a custom repeat of one of my favorite candystriped singles that sold on my etsy shop. This is my own hand dyed millends wool, merino, and some ingeo (cornsilk) dyed by dragoncraft on etsy.



And this one is a crazy-carded blend of all sorts of stuff; hot pink lincoln locks, natural undyed romney locks, mohair, millends wool, silk, sparkle, and best of all--plastic easter basket straw! It is suuuuuuper bulky.



This is a two-ply yarn spun from merino dyed by the Yarn Wench. I spun one ply with some light blue and neon green mohair locks.



These are batts I blended on my drum carder--a mix of my own hand dyed millends wool, bright yellow superwash, a touch of red merino, and lots of gold firestar nylon. I am so in love with these I haven't been able to spin them yet!



And finally, I started a log cabin blanket using my handspun. I really need to put that handspun stash to good use, so I thought why not?

was it hard to spin pom-poms into the yarn?

The only hard part was getting the big pom poms through my wheels small oriface!  I actually made sevreal more but got frustrated trying to push/pull them through!

The scrap yarn is sooooo cool! I bet it was a blast to make ^=^

I finally finished the blue fabric yarn. It's thinner than the others I've done and surprisingly it's only 40yards (give or take)


Today I'm taking on dying some roving with my toddlers! Should prove interesting ^-~

Greetings from the frozen North!  I'm up in Minneapolis this weekend for our first wedding shower..  and it's snowing like CRAZY!!  now I've been in NC for 4 years.. so my thick skin has gotten MUCH thinner.. and holy cow.. it's cold!!  It's spring in NC!!  We have flowers blooming!

Soooo.. that brings me to my first set of yarns.. From the Feb installment of Zen String FOTM club..  It's the softest Merino I have ever felt.  
The first is a soft spun, low twist single..    *i took the pics before i set the twist, so it's a bit kinkier than it is now*
April Showers
2 oz, 72 yards



Then, with the other 3 oz, I spun an energized thick and thin single with a touch of  gold angelina, then I plied it with gold metallic thread and silk flowers.  I LOVE how it turned out!
May Flowers
3 oz, 85 yards


Together


I spun up my first installment of Loop's spontaneous batt of the month club.  This was one of the most amazing batts I have ever seen!  It was bamboo, alpaca, mohair, corriedale, merino, tussah silk in shades of coppers, browns, greens with greenish/copperish angelina, copper sequins and SHREDDED MONEY!!  I added a few snippets of novelty yarn from my scrapbooking stash, and it turned out AMAZING!!  
Copper Pennies





I spun up another Spontaneous Loop batt.. This one is golds, oranges, yellows with purple silk noils.  It was just amazing to see the purple pop!!  There's of course sequins, angelina and some more novelty yarn in this as well.  I'm not sure the exact fibers, but I know there's merino, bamboo and alpaca.. probally some tussah silk as well.
Royalty
4 oz, 114 yards




This is Nebula, 2 oz, 43.5 yards of loose cotswold locks and a touch of angelina for sparkle



And this one is Intertwined Inspired..  I spun a thick/thin single, and let a metallic gold thread wrap around, then I plied the single with coils and beehives around a metallic red therad.
Lava Flow
83 yards, 3 oz  -  Corridale, BFL and sparkles




I also spun up half of a Lexi Pluckyfluff batt and made some cool supercoil necklaces




I strung up some felt beads as necklaces as well.  I think I'm going to make these and the supercoil necklaces as gifts for the ladies that are throwing the showers for us




I'm off to play in the snow!! Happy friday everyone!

You guys are all so inspiring! I usually make yarn that is fairly simple because that is what I prefer to knit with, but I now realize that it's pretty fun to make some different kinds of yarn. I still need to loosen up a bit Wink


Sunrise Bulky thick superwash singles plied with thin wool yarn.


Berries- just a thick single from handpainted roving hand dyed by Lapoli.



Dark Forest- handpainted superwash roving, navajo plied.


Bride of Frankenstein-Thick and thin singles spun from a carded batt.

Great stuff, everybody.

I only have 1 yarn for this week.  I call it "Dream Come True" after the hybrid tea rose variety that inspired the colors.



This is more of the faux cashmere, which I dyed in shades of red, pink, peach and yellow, and plied with metallic gold filment.

Colorwise, I apparently skipped spring and went right from winter into summer.  Smiley

Jazzturtle, can I come over to your house and play yarn with you?  Smiley

Only one skein this week.  Handdyed superwash called 3D:



5 5/8 ounces, 364 yards, navaho plied.  This is about how thin the single was:



And another photo, just because this was kind of the yarn of pain and angst (it broke my soul, a little bit):



Also, some FOs from handspun.  The first is a hat I made out of some of Lufahsman's fluffy BFL/silk yarn.



Here's a hat knit out of some of my corespun yarn (so soft!  so fluffy!):



And finally the scarf I wove using the fun handspun with the fabric scraps in it:



The fabric scrap one was really fun to do, and I'm looking forward to playing more with incorporating fabric scraps into my handspun.

I have 2 yarns this week. The first one I finished over the weekend. It's a 100% bamboo batt from Loop..





3 oz of bamboo ended up at approximately 960 yards, so yeah.. it's a very fine laceweight and I LURVE it.

The other is a 4 oz braid of superwash merino that had been sitting in my shop stock for quite a while, so I decided to spin it up. The colours aren't exactly my sorta thing since I'm not a pinks and purples sort of person. But I'm sure somewhere I'll find someone who loves it. After so much time concentrating on the bamboo, I wanted some super easy mindless spinning - which for me is a 3 ply sock yarn. That's the weight my fingers and wheel want to spin when I'm on auto pilot.

First the bobbins..


And the yarn..




I think I can see something adorably cute made for a baby girl out of this. Maybe a floppy hat with a ruffled brim.. or even a baby suprise jacket. I may just save it for someday in the future when my sister decides to pop out a baby.

I was on vacation last Friday so these are from the last two weeks (besides the ones from the class!) Smiley

"Clown Shoes" Unknown Yardage, 2 ply Mill Ends I hand dyed


"So Sari Charlie" 3 Skeins from Merino, Bamboo, Firestar, and Sari Silk I carded together, Plied with an Opalescent thread, Yardage Unknown


"Aqua Lagoon" The Single Ply is 133 Yards and the 2 Ply is 36 Yards, Mill Ends I hand Dyed. I plan to use them together with the 2 ply as trim!

Jazzturtle- Those yarns spun from the Loop spontaneous batts are just glorious! I love the one with the money especially.

Artsygirl- the yarn you spun up from the Chocolate Liquor batt is amazing! I doubt I could ever spin that fine!

I only have the one this week, this is 'Time Vortex One' spun from Loop's Indigo Inspiration batt.

117yards of fingering weight (both a yardage and wieght record for me) that took weeks to spin on my drop spindle. And thats only from 1.5ounces! I have half the batt yet to spin.

But I don't want to spin any more of that since I have this beautiful spontaneous batt staring at me, waiting to be spun. Its Sweeney Todd in batt form!

This is my first time posting my handspun in fiber friday.  My roving for this came in the mail a few hours ago, and I have started spinning it today.  I bought it from Here. Here it is  Grin :



Obviously, I still have more to spin.  I think I'm going to make it into a bag once I'm done.  I love the lemonade-y colors.

I skipped last week, and I have a few to show you now.  I never seem to have the yarn dried and photographed by friday! 
This one is called Liberty.  It is hand dyed mill ends blended (with dog brushes) with mohair.  I decided I don't really like working with mohair, it comes out scratchy for me. 83 yards, worsted weight


Next we have Goldilocks, overspun single, handdyed merino.  116 yards, thick and thin


This one is Starry Night, hand dyed mill ends with black thread and gold beads.  36 yards, thick and thin.


Lastly for today, October.  Fiber batt from an etsy seller, plied with clear thread and beads


I've been working on a bunch of 2 and 3 ply yarns, but like I said none of them are photographed yet.

Very inspiring yarns today. Love the boy toy yarn from Snowberrylime and tons others.  Grin


I always miss the fiber friday boat but not today!



I don't have any names but the left 2 are basic 2 plies of three different colors and the right one is a coil yarn. The one on the far right was supposed to be textured 2 ply but it decided otherwise. Neat facts: the orange one is dense at about 5 1/2 ounces and the far right one is only 18 yards. Really have to love the effort put into spinning some length of yarn and watching it shrink back up.  Wink That one reminds me of blossoms especially with our annual Cherry Blossom festival around the corner.

Oh, just because it was a yarn I should have paced myself on spinning, and instead I rushed it and made it less fun to spin.  Sometimes I get all pushy with my handspun, and I need to remember that I am *not* having a yarnmergency.  Smiley

This is my first time posting my handspun in fiber friday.  My roving for this came in the mail a few hours ago, and I have started spinning it today.  I bought it from Here. Here it is  Grin :



Obviously, I still have more to spin.  I think I'm going to make it into a bag once I'm done.  I love the lemonade-y colors.

aw, yay!! so great to see someone spinning something I dyed! Grin

I'll post my new stuff in a mo.
