I have two things to share this week.

here is some 2ply 50% tencel & 50% Merino (not the best representation of color it should be a very bright pink):



this is a WIP from some handspun I posted a few weeks ago:



I can't wait to see what everyone else has been up to this week.

Mmm, those look delicious! Cheesy

I don't have anything finished to show off this week but I have been playing with a new spindle and fibre from the fibreholics sample box that I received today which happens to match the spindle perfectly! Here is my WIP shot:



The fibre is 100% corriedale top. I am hoping to spin this together with some of the other, coordinating fibre samples I received and ply with some solid lilac or pale blue top. Might take me a while, though!

I love seeing what people are making with their handspun. I have yet to make anything with mine, though I have sent most of it to other people. That's what I do.

Oh my that spindle/fiber photo is gorgeous, and so is the yarn you are making! I love how they match so perfectly! But wow, I really just like the photo. Nerd am I?

Yummy yarns!!  I, too, love seeing what folks make with their handspun.

Here's mine for the week.  It's 4 oz of corriedale.  The roving's colorway didn't have a name, so I'm calling it "amethyst mine."  Might not make sense as a name, but it's what kept running through my mind as I was spinning it!

Nikschaf- I think that is the perfect name for that yarn! All those colors mixed in with the purple reminds me of the earth and all the layers you have to dig (aka mine) through to get at the pretty purple amethysts!

jrain- I love love love that spindle of yours! I think it was very thoughtful on their part to send you fiber that matches your spindle, too! They look nice and airy, kinda like when the day starts to turn into night... the part that's higher in the sky, not the sunset part...

Hunter Jumper33- That two-ply looks so pretty ^_^ I can only imagine the colors in real life are gorgeous! And I love the start to your sweater. Will it be long or short sleeved and how big is it?

As soon as I saw that Nikschaf was the last to post I got excited! I love her yarns! And I love how she presented it on the wood, beautiful shot. Not just a skein of yarn, ya know?

On that note, how do you pronounce the word "skein?" Is it like SKANE or SKEEN or SKINE? I've always used the last but I think it's wrong.

I got some fiber and a drop spindle from the July Birthday swap earlier this week.  So far I've spun 4 oz of undyed merino and a beautiful piece of roving...not sure how much.  I want to dye the 2 hanks I made of the undyed, and the other roving (which was really pretty colors) is resting for now.  Can I post that?? Pretty please? Smiley
