My turn! I feel like my yarn is actually looking like yarn now!!!



Freestyle spun most of the purple part of this one at the craftster meetup.


This was from some fiber from loves2experiment in STS


I spun this one this morning while my back was killing me!  I got this fiber from jexxican....it was pretty black and white but it kinda just turned grey when spinning.


So...I had leftovers on all of my bobbins and it was creating problems so I just plyed them all and made this colorful yarn.  At one point the 3rd bobbin's yarn accidentally got picked up and started spinning into it all....I liked the way it looked so I left it go the rest of the way...Iguess I did a 3-ply for part of it..

i finished this a few weeks ago, and i took the pictures a few weeks ago, but for some reason it took me forever to load the pictures.  anyway, here it finally is!





i love the color.  (i didn't dye it myself, i bought it off etsy).  originally i was thinking of plying it with gold thread, but i decided i liked it the way it was.   Smiley

Oh wow! Silence one week and now an explosion of amazing yarns!

I only have one contribution this week v_v but that's mostly due to my dwindling fiber supply. Never fear! i'll hopefully get fibers levels back up to where they should be soon  Cheesy



19.5 micron merino roving to start with, which i convinced my mum to try dyeing. Spun up really thickly (soo very very soft and squishy) then plied with some plain brown thread. I just want to continually nuzzle this stuff!
