Oh, my! These yarns are so lovely. I have only just started spinning, and here is some yarn that I made, out of natural brown wool.  I got it in a swap. I love it. I have another skein that my Swap Partner spun.  I am thinking a tam, or thick handwarmers.

Anywayz, pictures!:

Hey all,

I have a few photos to share this week.





The Great Ice Storm - Merieno, silk, targhee, and *sparkle* I haven't measured yet. I'm pleased with how it turned out. So soft.

Here is a FO from my handspun. The yarn is spun from raw targhee. They are so warm.





And here is some mohair that I dyed. It should be spun up and ready to show by next week.



Until next week...

Luxx -- Try editing your post, and replacing all your links with the code on Photobucket (listed beside the IMG CODE beside your pictures), between the [ ] brackets -- it will look something like this

Hope that helps  Smiley

I love millicent!  It reminds me of royalty for some reason, so rich and regal.

I know it isn't Friday anymore, but my first spinning class at the local weaver's guild was today, and we all got our own drop spindles and a small amount of undyed wool to get the feel of drafting.  So I spun and when I got home I wound it into a loose hank and dyed it with some sour green apple koolaid.  I found a needle felting kit at a local goodwill last week, and it had a bunch of roving in it, so I pulled the salmon out, since there was more of it than any other color, and I spun that with the little bit of leftover stuff from my class, into a sort of random peppermint twist thing, and plied it with the green.  I only have 10 yards, and I have NO idea what I'm going to do with it (although I have about 80 yards left of the green, I think, and more of the salmon roving, so we'll see).  But all in all, I'm really happy with it, and super excited, and I couldn't wait until next Friday to post it, so I figured I was close enough. ?  The colors aren't quite right because my scanner is weird.  The salmon is actually a little more pink, and the green is a little less yellow.  It's very springish.
