Hey, pmpknpunk, look at this..
It's not even off the wheel but I am so happy with how it looks I gotta share. it's a batt from the uniquely yours spin along on ravelry. It started as 4 different batts. I predrafted them all together and spun them up into a single. Then I plied it with a shiny green thread with a little beads. It's colorful, shiny and nubby.

OH! I also have some yarn that I spun up for my grandmother's christmas present, I really should take a picture of that too!!

AHHHH I love it!!!! What a great idea to predraft them together and the beads just add an extra punch. (I just may have to add beads too, is it bad that I haven't started mine yet? Hopefully this weekend (along with finishing up the Christmas cards that need to go out.)

I'm really proud of this one, because it's actually worsted weight, and two ply.  Pretty much everything I spin is bulky...

Like these:


calling it "Homewrecker" because it was the batt that broke my carder... cottswold locks, merino, mohair, nylon


calling it Kermit.  it's already gone, so I don't remember the yardage, but it's bulky weight, cottswold and soysilk.

I really love all the yarns this week, but I really love Blue Jay and Flying Fish.  I also love Lorna Lace's Mt Cree, and Kermit.

I want you all to know that every Friday I look through these and drool.  I'm so jealous of all you yarnies.   I want to get into one of the yarn swaps that always seem to be going on, but I have nothing to offer.  So I just drool.... (I don't knit, only needlefelt..... a whole skein would last me a lifetime)
