Okay, I love the pink one. It's got so much going on. I love all of the yarns. Shenandoah  Shocked. I love the texture and colors. MLF - The hair dyed fiber came out awesome! It reminds me of a food too. You should call it, "Movie Night", it looks like popcorn & licorice. Man Fiber Friday is so awesome. Not that that needed saying...lol

I don't have any yarn to share right now. I've been busy doing everything else in the world. Smiley

I have a few this week.  No clever names though.

The first one has been languishing for quite some time.  Its sushi colored corriedale from etsy seller christinamariepotte r.  Loads of yardage here!


Here is some of the samples that I got in the March phat fiber box.  I spun them all together and plied with a natural corriedale single that had been on the bobbin forever.



And finally these are leftover of bits and bobs that I didn't think I had enough to do anything with.  I wound it into a centerpull ball before I took a decent picture.

ZOMG, jazzturtle - I am in love with all that pink :-D

I'd loooove to get my hands on some tencel. The shots you all post of yarns spun with it are gorgeous.

Lovely yarns everyone! I really love snowballs and clown college...and "touch me" and I really love MLF's yellow and gray...always loved that color combo!

I dusted off my wheel last week and spun some milk fiber:





"Provence"  Merino 2-ply


"Winston" single ply


"Woody Vine" Corespun


I just got more milk fiber and and some bamboo  so I'm dyeing those up for next weeks spinning session!

I finally set the twist on this - I spun it up awhile ago but it's been waiting to be finished. It's BFL from Squoosh on etsy. Sorry it's blurry. My hands get shaky sometimes.

I love the yarns this week, especially all the soft-spun singles. I'm jealous!
And Jazzturtle, I LOVE that pink yarn!!

Here's some stuff I've spun lately:


Sheeptime Knits Merino Tencel in the colorway Pewter, roughly sport weight


Cinderella, worsted weight singles spun from my first batt, Romney and firestar


Blaze, worsted to bulky weight from chimera.etsy.com

Keep up the great work, you guys! You never fail to inspire!
