Happy Fiber Friday!

Here's what I made this week - it's going to become a scarf for my mom for Christmas:

Brown and tan tussah silk/black merino/white nylon glitz


Have a great weekend - can't wait to see the rest!

Oooh! Cool yarn, grayling40!
I spun some BFL from Fire Lizard Studios. The colorway is called 'Fire'. I love the intensity of the colors.



Hopefully, I'll be getting a new wheel soon and spin more often. I've been saving up and have my heart set on a Ladybug.

I love the natural colors of the first yarn & the bight colors of the second!

I have some knits made with my handspun this week.







Have a great week!

this is it this week.  It was some of the roving I had dyed last week, spun up with white.  It was a bit thicker then I wanted it to be, but it was my first official yarn spun on my wheel.
blue raspberry lime swirl (thank you to Cealy for the name):

sorry for the fuzzy pic.  I still can't figure out those sites Wanderskopos mentioned.  I think itis because I have mac.. ohwell, blurry pics for now Smiley
I <3 Feather and Enchantment under the sea.  And those bags rock!

It's been so long since I have participated! Argh! Great stuff you guys. Maybe I will have some too, soon...

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

I had three yarns to share this week but forgot to photograph them. They were for a local doll maker who's using my yarns for doll hair. It's too bad because they turned out really nice.

Love it all as usual!  What's not to love about fiber?!  I'll have something this week, I didn't finish it in time for this post.  Great yarns, they're all so perdy!
