I had a wheel with issues too. The main wheel would only turn one way so I couldn't ply unless I spindle spun and wheel plied. Oh lord, drove me banannas. I too thought it was yarn you purchased and dyed. Reallllly even so be proud of it. I have nooo idea Cyndi what to do with bloom fluffy yarn. I assume a not very detailed stitch pattern though?

mullerslanefarm: Don't worry, I am quite aware that I am a newbie with an awful lot to learn! Wink I definitely agree, oddacity's yarn looks so professional and lovely - I am very jealous. Your yarns sound scrumptious!

Thenutmeg2000:
Ooh, your Jacob looks great! I'm still scared of messing my singles up so I haven't tried plying yet. *blush* Aww, mine's nowhere near as nice as Malabrigo, I'm afraid, but thank you!

Azzarath:
I love your rainbow yarns! I really like 'barber-pole' yarns as they're not an effect you can achieve with dye alone. The first rainbow one in particular makes me smile!

Gorgeous yarns, as always!  I have some bamboo fiber in the mail.  Hopefully I'll get it in time to show off next week.

jexxican Yes, I am often refered to as MLF.  I'm not trying to be a tease ... my camera got packed away a couple months ago when I was at my daughter's helping her move.  They haven't found it yet.  My camera takes awful pictures...

Thenutmeg2000-  I did that bit on the spindle. At first it was difficult, but by the end I kinda gave up on trying to make it all one weight, and figured out that a long draw with a lace weight spindle worked best for me... It's uneven and a bit thick, but it's a dream to touch.  I'll probably make my self a cuff out of it, just to have it next to my skin Smiley
Jexxican-  NO DEAL!  I could make something like it though.  But that one is my first coil/bobble yarn, She's a keeper!
