Hello all! Happy Fiber Friday!

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted on a Fiber Friday much less started one! I only have one photo but 3 yarns...

Ok, from left to right:
Poor little squishy no-name - 136 yds, 3.6 oz. of soft squishy Rambouillet from roving that I dyed with Tinfix acid dyes. 2-ply...one single is various light greens and the other is various blues. I still have a couple ounces each of the blue and green roving that I think I'm going to corespin.

Au Naturel - 85 yds. 3.6 oz. of some natural color wool that I got in a grab bag from Sheep Shed Studio a while back and finally carded it up on the drum carder. Once I had the single spun I decided I wanted to try Andean plying but was afraid it would be too much yarn to wrap around my hand so I used the paperbook with a pencil in it method...it worked quite well! http://rosemaryknits.blogspot.com/2006/08/andean-plying-bracelet-simplified.html

Naughty and Nice - 195 yds. 5.3 oz. Rambouillet from roving that I dyed with MixAde. Nowhere near as good as Kool-Aid, I used 3 different flavors...strawberr y, cherry and black cherry...they all turned out nearly the same color with not enough difference in them to really tell them apart. I'm sticking with Kool-Aid from now on...their flavors come in different colors, lol. Anyway...I carded the reddish-pinks with some white then plied it with some black crochet thread.

Now, on with the fiber porn!

I have one this week but it's at home and I'm at school still, so when I get home I will be sure to snap a picture and share.
