Seriously?
Just me?
The New Hampshire wool and sheep festival was a few weekends ago, I got a boat load of stuff. The dark brown/black is llama, and the lime and purple is border leicester. I started knitting a shawl with the single. The llama is a 2 ply.

I love those colours together.  Reminds me of coleus plants.

Here is my spinning this week.  Its my first attempt at art yarn.  I love it.  I'm picturing knitting a big slouchy loosely knit hat from it.  I know my daughter will love and wear it.

The yarns look lovely! Cheesy I am new to spinning to I haven't had a go at plying yet but I think it is in my near future.

I'm a bit late, but here's the 100% BFL single I have been spinning:



It's off the spindle now but I was playing around with my camera settings at the time and thought that photo came out nicely!  Wink

Oooo! Art yarn <3!

That is one delicious looking spindle jrain  Cheesy if you don't mind my asking, where did you find it?

Been playing around with dye lately (stained hands ><) so hopefully next FF i'll be joining in >>; Alas exams are fast approaching and they do mess with possible spinning times.

I got the spindle through a destash on Ravelry but it was originally bought from butterflygirldesign s on etsy. Cheesy I was looking for something other than a plain spindle to start out with and it fit the bill perfectly!
