Friday! Wheeee!

So I have three this week. I spent some quality time with my drum carder last week.




Ice Hockey - corridale, BFL, targhee, merino, silk, firestar, mohair (carded and locks), and angora. So soft and fluffy.



Ice Hockey part two - Same as above, but corespun




Like Buttah or Glass Slipper (I haven't decided yet)- Silk, hemp, tencil, bfl, corridale, and merino corespun.
So out of this world soft and creamy.

Yeah!

So... I've made yarn for the first time!  Shocked

It's just single-ply of some wooly-stuff, but I'm damn  proud of it!

You should be!  That is terrific first time yarn!!!

I am desperately in love with this. Beautiful!

I spun this up for the Harry Potter knit and crochet House Cup on ravelry:


It's baby camel down plied with copper thread. It's super soft and squishy. I'm saving up for more camel so I can make some for my own use.

very nice fiber friday everyone!  sorry I haven't contributed in a while, I'm gearing up to start spinning again now that the wedding is over.  Plus I just bought a drum carder, so I'm going to need to stock my shop to pay for it!

I've been too busy to spin these days Cry looking at everyone's yarns is making me want to spin so bad! 
here are some little nests i made last week for my little friends Mev and Isa:



the nests are crocheted from handspun with bits of cassette tape, ribbons and rick-rack spun in and the eggs are felted wool.
