I've been busy knitting up mitts and hats and scarves from some previously spun yarn but managed to get some new skeins spun.

From roving I picked up at the Fiber in the Park last weekend:

4 oz Colonial (still have 4 oz I'm spinning now to ply with):





2 oz mixed wools:



And from Penquino's Funky Batts:





I just got in 2 more of her Funky Batts, and am excited to spin them up!!

From the raw dorset, I knit these and tea dyed:

Tail-spun mohair always reminds me of unicorns, the core spun makes me think of candy. Yum!

I got a few done this week, too.

i love Gleam & Orangina! gleam looks like those fluffy colored marshmallows, and orangina, well, the first time i ever saw that drink, i was working my first day in an office full of wimmin after working in an engineering office, which was all male. there it was, chilling in the refridgerator. i died laughing, then snapped a pic to send to my beau. i had to buy some, its delicious, and is now a running joke with us! even saying the name, orangina, makes me giggle, so you totally made my day, and the yarn is gorgeous in itself!!! hehe orangina
