Good morning!  I spun 2 chunky coil yarns this week.  Can't wait to see what you all have been up to...

Have a great week!

My first fiber Friday in ages.  Grin I have been spinning a bit, but mostly doing other things this summer.  Tongue

Okay, this is some hand dyed merino (dyed by someone else) spunn quite thin and navajo plied. Unknown yardage, But enough to make a small project.

Fnugg, I love that yarn! I always have such a hard time navajo plying (nicely)

Excellent work!

OMG, ok, I'm going to try Navajo plying this weekend.  That yarn is just too beautiful. 

I have done next to no spinning this past week, due to being busy with house cleaning and stuff.  But I carded a ton of batts on my new Strauch Petite last week and finally got pics of them.  I did some more last night, it is SO addicting!

Love that second coil yarn isamax - that silver sparkle is awesome.  And I am drooling over your batts cloudlover!

I haven't spun any yarn in the past couple of weeks but got a bug up my bum and turned out 146 yards total of Corridale that I dyed with grape and cherry kool aide.  I call it Razzle Berry

Then I used it to make me my new winter hat!  It is really, really warm which is perfect considering they are calling for this winter to be the coldest winter in years  Tongue

Yummy yarns as usual! I would wear that sparkly coiled yarn as is Isamax!
I love Fnug's navajo plied yarn, and that Razzleberry hat and natashafatale those yarns look beautiful and squooshy.
I wish I could touch all those carded batts. I love spinning from batts but am not such a fan of actually doing the work carding up the fiber!

I have a few skeins done this week:

"Wood Violet" Merino 2 ply

"Maid Marion" single ply Falklands

"Autumn Fire", Navajo plied Falklands
