just need a bit of practice keeping the tension even, kelly.  I like the colors in it!  It will knit/crochet up beautifully and you never see the looser plied spots.

Have you soaked it yet??  If not, do so and give it a bunch of strong tugs around the skein.  It will help even out the twist.

I'm liking it a lot!

Yeah, I soaked it and beat the heck out of it. Thanks for the compliment.

I'm going to try Navajo again this week.

There are so many gorgeous yarns this week!  I just watched the Sit and Spin video by Jacey of Insubordiknit, and I feel so inspired!  I haven't done any art yarns before, but I can't wait!

I'm totally late with this, but I actually finished some yarn this week!  It's merino/tencel from Juliespins (on etsy), and 4oz ended up being close to 100yds.  It's a gift for a swap I'm doing (not on craftster), and I just hope the recipient likes it!

adriennec- That is fabulous yarn! I love those colors together, and they just look luscious! Where did you get the video of Jacey at? That sounds like it would be great to watch. She makes all kinds of cool arty handspuns...

Siiiigh. All of your yarns are SO beautiful! I love knitting, but I really wish I could dye/spin my own yarn.

But really, really nice work everyone. I've never posted in one of the Friday Fiber threads before, but they're my FAVORITE threads to read!
