I'm a little scared to start this thread because I am such a spinning noob.  Here are a couple of simple single plied ones.  I'm sorry I didn't name them... maybe I could get some ideas from you folks.  These are merino and I dyed them myself.

steph-blue those are pretty! Will you be making something with them?
I laid awake in bed last night thinking about Fiber Friday - how silly is that? I have some bfl that I spun last fall that I bought some threads to ply it with but now I'm thinking of making it a single. It's been in a center-pull ball for so long I hope it's still workable. It's been hot here so spinning has stopped until my boyfriend decide to turn the air on - otherwise I'll just get covered in fiber.

I love the red one!

I finally have something new to share! I spun these about two weeks ago, but since then I've been stuck in the middle of a move.

Summer Day:
Spun from a BL with bits of bamboo, soy silk, and sari silk. 25 1/5 yards



Super Crazy Explosion of Fun!:
Spun from several mini batts including bamboo, soy silk, and merino wool. I haven't got the yardage yet (have to do that this afternoon!)



Not Named Yet:
Spun from a Wensleydale roving, yardage unknown yet! This was my absolute favorite thing to spin, and it's the most even yarn I've spun yet!



Teeny Tiny Little Thing (haha, this one doesn't really need a name):
Spun from the most beautiful green batts ever! I had a lot of trouble with this one because I had never spun from a batt before, but picked the most complicated one I had ordered to start with! Yardage unknown, probably not more than 10 yards though!



Have a good weekend everyone! I'm going to a fiber festival tomorrow!

Sigh- I'm suffering from good enuff syndrome these days.  I like the swampy skein by steph blue and Super Crazy Explosion of Fun!  

Oh, and the kitties! Happy FF day  Grin

Okay. Let's try this again.  For some reason, it wasn't taking my images.

Anyway, as I was saying:
steph blue, you are off to a great start.  Those look fabulous; I want to pet them.

shortern, your yarns look really squishy.  I really love the colors in that teeny tiny little thing.  Gorgeous.

I have a few new yarns to share.  Haven't posted for a while since I had a bunch of stuff on the bobbins that needed to be plied.  Finally got around to finishing them, so here they are:


I call this one Tutti Frutti.  My first attempt at navajo plying, which I totally adore.  It's about 4 oz, and 175 yards or so of merino.


My second attempt at navajo plying, with some baby camel/silk fiber from Foxfire fibers.  Yum!


I call this collection of yarns Ghost Stories.  They use the same base of mixed grey fiber, with 1 yarn plied with natural white alpaca, 1 plied with itself, and 1 plied with natural black alpaca.
