I've been waiting for this fiber Friday and it's late here but I guess I'll start one anyway.
I received this beautiful batt from elociNNicole in the IYP 14 swap.
It was so beautiful I had to spin it right up.  And this is the yarny goodness still on my Kiwi!




Thanks again elociNNicole!

Happy Fiber Friday everyone.

Okay so I took some pics finally of some stuff thats still on the bobbin from ages ago....... I hope it all plies up right since it's been sitting for much to long...


Hand pulled roving from Freestyle, spun up on the bobin.. still have 1/2 of it to go...  Hoping to try some coil with it.


And finally a FO!! This is from dyed roving I spun sent to me in a swap by Oddacity.  A crocheted
starghan!  I think I'll leave it this size, as its more as a lovey blanket for my belly friend if said belly friend comes out a girl.. Cheesy

It actually plies up better if it's been sitting- the twist has 'evened out' and is less likely to twist back on itself.

Hopefully better late than never. I've been too swamped with end of semester work.

First I finally got to spin a second single and ply the green superwash I showed like two weeks ago. It's 224 yards, my longest homespun so far!



This one was spun with the very colorful single from last week. The colorful single is wool and merino, a natural white single and a strand of metallic thread.



You can't really see the thread but it's in there and it's pretty!
