I finished up 2 projects that have been waiting patiently... 4 oz of indigo dyed merino, and the rest (3.75 z) of some super soft alpaca i got from bodega.
I'm still working on Love's fleece little by little.


and I combed/spun/knit up a sample of a grey alpaca fleece that was gifted to me

Great yarn this week.  I love Country Kimono!  Beautiful, I love the fabric.

I did a lot of spinning this week for the Tour de Fleece. 

The yarn on the left is Morritt, Shetland, Rambouillet, Llama, some mixed mystery wool, Alpaca, and Mohair, all natural colored, it's a light fingering weight.  On the right is mystery wool, superwash, soy silk and Morritt corespun on crochet cotton.


This is mixed mystery wool, Soy Silk and Nylon plied on red thread.


I actually just finished spinning this about twenty minutes ago.  It's a little of everything, bits and pieces of different roving that I blended on my hackle.


I think that's it!

Here is mine this week.  Its called 'Partridge Berry Rag'.  I have a 2 ply and a single because I've yet to figure out a way to make my bobbins match up. 


I use the kitchen scale to weigh out the fiber, say 2 oz per ply, and keep them separated, and as I'm getting  fairly good about constant width, it works out pretty well...   Also - your yarn is lovely.  Also digging that indigo, maniacmaiden.  Cheesy

I started to write down all my favorite yarns, but the list got too long.  Everyone has such beautiful yarn this week.  At some point I'll get back into the spinning.  I have some gorgeous roving waiting for me, I just have been busy with other things.

Pretty, pretty, pretty! My favourite is the one with the japanese silk scarf and the light blue ply, absolutely gorgeous!

I have been feeling unwell the last couple of weeks, so I was not as productive as usual, but here are two of my most recently finished yarns:

Hint of gold: A simple but elegant falkland wool yarn from my first order of DHF wool (http://www.falklandwool.com):


Starstruck: An extravagant and glamourous art yarn with sequins, fabric stars, lots of beads and mother of pearl discs:

Really beautiful yarns! I like to look at the art yarns (like Snowberrylime's Starstruck), but I want to spin stuff like manicmaiden's... I love how it looks when knit... Maybe I'll have finished my blue wool by next Friday, there was 2 oz originally and I've been only spinning it for like a year Tongue
