yum! Beautiful yarns you two!  I love how you yarn Jazzturtle, can be so gloriously beautiful and so can MLF's , but for such very different reasons.  I love both your styles!
I thought I'd have some stuff off the bobbins, but I didn't manage to spin to quickly last night... maybe finally next week...

Stained glass is absolutely fantastic! 

I do have a couple of yarns and a couple of dyeings but pictures aren't uploaded to the computer yet so I'll be back later.  Consider this my placeholder Tongue

Wow these are all so beautiful!  What kinds of things do you knit/crochet out of them?  They look so nice I'd be afraid whatever I made wouldn't do your yarns justice!

I was also going to say which was my favorite and I realized I can't decide!  Maybe Eggplant or Monster or Key West or .... lol

Gorgeous, Gorgeous!

I haven't been spinning much as I've been carding batts and actually started knitting more! Therefore these yarns all have a purpose in mind for a change! Also we recently started some home improvement projects...mainly tearing down wallpaper in the kitchen and getting ready to put in some additional cupboards/countertops, a breakfast/wine bar, paint, etc. so not much night time spinning time BUT here are a few from the last few weeks:


Corspun from a Traveling Rhinos batt. My favorite color combo, I'm thinking GPS cozy!!!


From fiber by Kristin of All Spun Up, custom colorway, 8oz. 2 ply LOTS of yardage...and it's currently a tangled mess because I went to use it and yeah... EEEK! I think once it's untangled it's going to be a baby surprise jacket!


Corespun merino, alpaca, shetland bamboo from some batts I made...going to be a hat!


All Spun Up Merino single...for Huh but I LOVE it!

Also in case anyone is interested a couple weeks ago I rearranged my studio a bit, there is a "tour" on my blog, http://uniquelyyoursdesign.blogspot.com/2009/09/tour-of-my-studio.html

Hope everyone has a wonderful and fiber filled weekend...unfortuna tely I don't see much fiber time in store for me, I think mine is going to be filled with painting and installing...but it will be SO nice when it's done! TGIF!!!

chutzpaw,
I asked that same questions before I started making 'art yarns'.  If you can get enough yardage out of them, you can make anything you would make using 'regular yarns'.  Small yardage could be used to trim, accent, et al.

Pmpkn, What wonderful photos of you and Jazz!!!!

Wow, such nice yarns. I can't wait until I spin some multicoloured ones.
I particularly like pmpknpunk's last skein.

I'm very new to spinning. This is just my second skein. It's 50 grs of dyed corriedale.
I've used up all of my initial 'practice' fibre. Now I get to move on to the good stuff Smiley



I'm probably going to head back to the fibre store tomorrow and pick up some more.

Oh, and this is a hot pad that I made with my first skein that I spun 3 days ago.
