Happy Friday!!!

First up is 3 "Single Scoop" Corespun yarns. (I call my 1oz. spins single scoops!)


This is "Teddy Bear" From a 2oz batt I blend including Merino, Silk, Shetland, Alpaca, and Angelina. SOOO soft!


And finally my yarn from Jazzturtle's My Little Pony SAL! I plied with some metallic silver bling yarn and added about 2oz total of 4 different colors hand dyed merino and when I came to those stripes of color I made HUGE granny stacks! I had to push them through the orifice on my Lendrum jumbo bobbin then were so big! There are random coils in there too and some humongo spots of glitz and bling! I think I got about 100 yards in the 2 skeins.

What awesome stacks!  Shocked
I can't seem to get them to work in my spinning.
They always even back out with the yarn  Undecided

I love that you've called this after your drugs.  Even if I am allergic to Amoxicillin.
