Hi Everyone!
Beautiful yarns this week!!

I haven't spun much this week because I have been dealing with a terrible bout of vertigo.  Anything spinny made me dizzy.. my carder, my wheel, scrolling the computer screen..  It's been awful!

I did manage to get a couple done.. and we got a new camera this week, so I'm just loving the 12x zoom and macro function!

This one will stripe (w/4 repeats) in bold pink, blue and green, with natural brown shetland in between each one..   There's TONS of sari silk and sari silk waste in all colors.. so the striping may be subtle..
Mumbai Nights (yardage not measured yet)



I carded up a batt of black merino, with TONS of rainbow angelina.  I made some freeform felt nubbies by putting handfuls of scrap fiber into a mesh bag, and washing it on hot with soap.
I corespun the batts, adding the felt nubbies..
Rock Show (no yardage yet, but almost a lb skein!)




Finally, I spun up some yummy enchanted knoll batts thick and thin, with a metallic thread candy striping.  I then plied with a yellow rayon thread
One Fish, Two Fish (yardage not measured yet)



Have a great weekend everyone!

Inie_Rah, I love Tutti Frutti! Also I'm currently doing something very similar to what you did with Ghost Stories...although I only have one skein done!

So here's my first yarn from my wheel that is NOT for practice and I'm loving. Cheesy





Cool Spa #1, 4oz merino, 220 yards, somewhere between fingering and DK (still too lazy to do wpi, so I'm eyeballing lol). The fiber came from about 10oz pencil roving which the seller had named "Cool Spa," which included a light grey, medium grey, and a sort of icy-sea blue. This one is the blue and medium grey, and I'm going to be doing the other color combos after this.

Also this was my first time plying from two singles. The ply is very uneven, but hey, I'll get there. Tongue

Mmmm...yarn.   Mumbai Nights looks gorgeous, as are all of your yarns, Jazzturtle.  And I like the first of your cool spa yarns, oddacity, the colors are very subtle and pretty.
