Holy crap, lamina, I freakin' LOVE how your yarn turned out!!!! Shocked Shocked
Can't wait to see the finished scarf!

I've spun up the awesome red batts that I got from you in trade, but have once again failed to take a pic, darn it.  Next week!

Lovely yarns, everyone...keep 'em comin'.  Cheesy

ohohoh!! my first fiber friday!!!    I was so excited to ge these done for today, and then I couldn't find my camera, so I had to use photobooth on my mac... these are probably pretty blurry...  But I can't wait to share.  I'm so in love with this spinning!!
Now they can't compare to everyone elses here (so much amazing stuff here!),  but they are my firsts and I'm so proud of em anyway!



Both were made with some kind of wool... I forgot to have a look at the type. And done on a drop spindle (still looking for a good deal on a wheel)  But they are super soft and I can't help but look at them and touch them 100 times a day! lol.

BTW, your yarn looked great too!!!!

Wow, it feels like its been ages since I last posted here on Fiber Friday. Have to get back in the swing of it.
Great yarn everybody! My favourites so far are Autumn leaves, Autumn sunset and Selkie.

October 425 yards of handdyed (by me) Falklandwool



Curly - tailspun Cotswold locks, just 13 yards out of 45 gram


Clay - 288 yards Romney and Merinocross wool spun straight from the lock


And some batts I carded. If I get a chance beside decorating I'll spin up the Moonlight ones next week.
