SensiblyTacky, I love your cotton candy kisses.  I can't wait to figure out how to make such lovely yarn!

Pretty, pretty ignorantamoeba! I like the names you've chosen for your yarns; Abram's one of my favorite names. As for your yarn, Cecily is my favorite. I love the yellows and grays together.

Belladune, I love the BFL roving in the blue/purple/yellow combination. That is going to be gorgeous when it's spun up.

yberry, your merino/tencel blend is beautiful! Did you dye that yourself? It looks like silver and gold.

Cya, how much yardage do you have there? When a yarn is too itchy for my liking, I usually make fingerless mitts that can go over gloves. I love the colors, by the way. It's going to look awesome when it's knitted.

SensiblyTacky, I love, love, love Summer Salad! It looks so smooshy and the colors are great. I'd love a hat made out of that yarn; it would be so cheery!

nikolelily, pretty neckwarmer. That's a great shade of pink. Your yarn is so nice and even.

I finished spinning some Samoyed fur that an acquaintance gave to me. I initially has wished she had given me more (I know she has it, but didn't want to overwhelm me with her dog's hair), but I'm glad she only gave me a bit. I do not like spinning dog fur. At least, I didn't like spinning that dog's fur. But, the final product came out nice and here are some pictures. It's 65 yards of fingering:





Looking forward to seeing other Fiber Friday offerings!

LOL  I spoiled myself with that silk!  I've been using a handme down bag of Romney rovings for the past 3 months before that!

I like the color of your first yarn! It looks juicy!

cottondeer: she can send some of it my way!  Dog hair is one of my two favorite things to spin (silk being the other). 

Here's what I've got going on:


My first successful novelty (it's my favorite yarn ever):



A blurry picture of the bamboo I spun up (but you can see the color, and that's what's most delicious about it!)


And the scarf it's getting knitted in to:


That's all that's new this week Sad

But I'm getting a jumbo flyer sometime next week, and then I'll have lots of experimentation and cool new yarns!!  Also, I've ordered from Sheep Shed Studios, and that should be here soon as well!
