Okay I have a ton of yarns to share this week. Most are for swaps but everyone already knows what they are getting so I can post.

The first is a spun DK weight fulled single from a batt called "Rose Garden" from Aspenmoonarts on etsy. It's Corriedale and glitz about 120 yards.

The next two are from Spunky Eclectic's Fiber of the Month Club from October 2007. It's called Goblin eyes and its Romney wool.
First up is 85 yards 2 ply

And the second half of the roving was spun into an art yarn with beads and coils about 89 yards worsted/bulky

The 4th yarn is from hand dyed/carded batts mixing wool top, mohair and BFL I call this "Into the Blue" 120 yards dk fulled singles

The 5th is from hand dyed combed top 70/30 wool top/mohair 90 yards worsted weight fulled singles. This is from my "Electric Razzberry" colorway

The 6th yarn is from Hanks in the Hood on etsy (I love her she has a fiber of the month club 60 bucks for a POUND of fiber for 3 months it's unbelievable)
"Raspberry Sorbet" spun from a 2 oz batt of 50 Alpaca 45 wool 5 mohair 100 yards 2 ply worsted

And since I'm giving all this away I had to spin something for myself. Its sport weight 3 ply (Navajo plied) sock yarn a superwash nylon blend from my own Sock Batts 270 yards. (I still need to spin the nylon for the heels and toes)

Okay that's a lot of yarn I should give my wheel a rest now.

Those are beautiful! (Besides, there can't be anything wrong with a big pile of freshly dyed wool!)

Star217 - I love the "Raspberry Sorbet" (did you post it on Ravelry, too? It looks familiar but maybe I'm crazy).  I love Hanks in the Hood, too. I think that lb of fiber she sent me was the softest I've ever felt.

I love the collection of coordinating yarns, jazzturtle!  And the button yarn is fantastic!

I missed Fiber Friday last week because I seemed to have lost all sense of what day it is.  Anyway, here's Beachy Keen:



146 yards, 4 3/8 ounces.

And here's Dear Catastrophe Soy Silk, spun up from an absolute mess of roving:





149 yards, 3 5/8 ounces.

Also, some new handspun socks!  Yay!  This is from the navaho plied stuff I did a few weeks ago:

Jazzturtle, I LOVED the artclub batt I spun, I want to get more.
Star217, I thought about the hanks fiber club and for some reason I didn't do it, now maybe I will......

My yarn this week comes from last months fiber of the month swap. (April sign ups are open! come join the fun!!!!!)
I'm making a bike riding scarf for my husband. It needs to be warm and loud so people will see him- he normally wears black when he rides.

I was worried it was a little femmy as I was spinning it but it has come out nicely.
up close:

Now I'm torn what to start with next- some crazy lock yarn or soaker yarn? Because my son needs a handspun wool soaker and I just found a GREAT pattern........

Thats what I was going to say lapoli! He he ^-^

I didn't have much time this week to spin but I needed to make some doll hair specifically dread like, so I made some really funky yarn.

Here it is turned into dolly dreads.

The duck and I are rather sad it's not going to be staying here, but the doll that's getting them is keeping an eye on us.

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

Everyones yarns look great this week, as always!
Ekioart - those dreads look really neat!

I didn't get too much spinning done this week. I spent too much time dyeing and trying to spend more time with my boyfriend. This is all I've spun this week, from my "Violent Violet" dye job... hopefully I'll have more time to spin up the rest of it and make a 2ply for next week.


I can't figure out why I've started spinning so incredibly thin... I hope it doesnt break when plying.

On another note I've gotten lots of fun things in the mail from people on Etsy this week! I would like to play with them too and hopefully have some to show for next week.

Here are links to my dyeing projects from this week Cheesy
