It's been a busy week for most of us, I think. Since there is no FF thread yet, I'll start us off again.  Smiley

These pictures were hastily taken tonight, right before the sun went down. I'll try for better pics later on.


The whole pile:


Hope you all have a great weekend!

I love the pink and orange one on the left in the first pic!

Now that the Sheep to Shawl challenge is done, I hope to get back to some more spinning soon!

I'm liking the green-blue in the middle of the top pic. Sadly, nothing to share this week, but maybe I will have some next week. At the market tomorrow I am planning on experimenting with a Sari I ripped up these past few days.  Shocked

Holy lot of yarn!  Those look fantastic.

I was not nearly so productive, and I'm late to the party, but I did have one new yarn this week.

Finally have something small to share, I never get enough to time to spin Sad I wanted to try some art yarn, so I tried to make coils/beehives, first time not too great second time was a little better. Still not sure how to actually do them but I liked the outcome.

First try:


2nd try:

This is what I made last week.

Left = grey sheep wool from my fleece. Right = Merino in 2 colours. It's so soft that's very difficult to spin (I think these rovings were ment for felting rather than spinning).

Love the yarn you all made this week, all such happy colours!
The art yarn is pretty, charaxesdistanti! What are you going to use it for?

So I've mostly been knitting, but I did get 5 skeins done (only 875 yards total).
