I'm SHOCKED it's 5pm here in NC, and there's NO Fiber Friday thread for me to drool over?!?

I've still been spinning for the Tour De Fleece.. so I have a few to share..

A corespun loop batt with spots of lurex autowrapping and large beads attached to the lurex..
Sangria



SeaGlass, one of my own batts, spun thick and thin and plied with silver thread and frosted "seaglass" beads



Waterlillies, corespun batt with lurex autowrapping



Diamonds in the Rough, batts spun thick and thin, plied with silver thread and 12 swvorwski crystals



I hope everyone has a great Friday and a fiber filled weekend!!

I couldn't believe the lack of FF either!  It's nearly 10.30pm in the UK!   Shocked

Gorgeous yarns Jazzturtle, I love Waterlillies and Diamonds in the Rough especially  Cheesy

Here are a couple of my recent spins from my hand carded batts...

Solstice - corespun merino, silk, sparkles and stuff, 120g and 110 metres long


Dirty Pretty Thing - corespun wensleydale (natural organic black/brown and hand dyed) and mystery wool with added locks!  174g and 39 metres long


and here's some of my latest batts...

Neptune Grass - merino, silk, sparkle and black diamond


Modern Guilt - merino, silk, cashmere, sparkle and black diamond


I'm busy with five raw fleeces at the moment so hopefully I'll have something to show from them next week!  Hope there are some more Fibre Friday posts on the way today!   Smiley

I noticed that FF was missing, and I wanted to start it earlier but I was too shy, lol Smiley

This is my first skein of yarn. EVER. I am pretty proud of the result, but I have no idea what to do with it. I dyed the wool with Kool-aid.

Those bits of blue yarn were just there to keep the yarn together while I winded the skein.

Yay for the fruit of my labor! Grin

I love the sea glass and diamond in the rough!  But I have a question...  What do you actually use yarn like that for?  As beautiful as it is, it looks like a nightmare to actually knot or crochet with...

skeffko, that Modern Guilt batt is gorgeous! Is it for sale or for your own pleasure?
Jazzturtle, you're amazing. Everything you show is beautiful! I want to squoosh all of your skeins.

jessa_aka_jalapeno Grape Farm is lovely and very impressive for a first ever skein!   Shocked

I agree with the noodle princess about making things with unusual and art yarns, they're great fun!  You often have to 'think outside the box' a bit when using them and decide for yourself what size needles/hooks to use etc but I think that adds to the creative process (and the whole experience) and I've certainly learnt a lot knitting with my own handspun and making up my own patterns   Smiley

casmir - thanks for your comment about my Modern Guilt batts!  I have already spun that one up now but I love carding batts and I'm hoping to open up an Etsy shop at some point in the near future.  Batts will definitely be on the menu when I do!   Cheesy

Well, it's way past Friday - but there were so few FF photos this week, I figured I'd tag on, even a few days late. Wink

I actually had the chance to photograph some yarn!  This is lots of samples from the March and June Phat Fiber boxes (themes were 'Celtic' and 'Oceanic', so lots of blues and greens).  There are also some random leftover bits from my own dyeing in there - I was trying to use up lots of bits and pieces.
