Gee, being an Aussie I never can catch fiber Friday at the right time.
It's 5pm Friday here so I figure I'll start the next one.

I'm quite excited actually, because these are my first skeins spun on the wheel.  Smiley
I've been spinning on a drop spindle for quite some time, but just recently took the plunge in joining my local guild. I've hired and ashford traditional, and here's what I've made so far:




My most recent skein. A low-twist single using Aussie merino, silk, and thread


My first handspun on the wheel using the natural fiber colours


Hand-dyed Falkland

I like the subtle colour variation in the plied yarns you all went for this week.
Like Jane Doe's last one, krafty_kelly's and kathleenalice's first.
I have 3 this week (still need to take photos of the rest)

Embers - 48 yards, Romney lamb and Border Leicester wool spun straight from the lock and wrapped in black lurex thread


Goblin - 241 yards, handdyed Falkland wool


Au Natural - 95 yards, corespun suri alpaca

I love goblin. Gorgeous.

And embers.  Lovely.

Here is an fo I did with my handspun.  Its only the second thing I've made with handspun.  I'm thinking of making a cowl with the teal stuff from above.  Anyone have any suggestions for a pattern?
