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!

Great yarns everyone! I have been busy making batts so no yarns to share this week. Sad

isamax the tree hat is adorable! I love how the sequins in the yarn look like ornaments!!! And the pom-pon on top to look like a star, great touch!
