I always keep forgetting to post in here, I could have posted this last week.  Oh well.  I made this for the Friends of Craftster Raffle swap.  It is superwash merino from Fiber Optic on Etsy.  It was hard to give away, so squishy and soft.  I never did name it.  I don't know, maybe "shoreline"?  You have earth and water/sky colors in there.  It is about 105 yards.  I love it.

Very cool yarns so far!

That's so pretty, Myklia... I just want to squeeze it!  Cheesy
Wow! That has to be the best-looking 'hairball' I've ever seen!  Wink So cool!

Here's my offering for the week. It's SSS black/white roving kettle-dyed with Wilton's... 1.7 ounces, about 170 yards and ~17 wpi (on average). Sorry I didn't have a better picture, it looks a little lighter than the actual color. I intend to crochet it into a shawl for a doll that I'm finishing up.

Wow all the yarns are just to die for this week!  Grin

I love the yarns this week!  I really love "Oasis" and I'm not usually even a laceweight girl!

Here's mine for the week:  I call it "Plum Pudding."  It's about 100 yards, SSS roving, I oven dyed the roving with Kool-Aid.  I plied it with navy blue sewing thread.  It's my second attempt at spinning on my new wheel.
