this will probably be my last fiber friday offering for a few months.  i don't think i'll have time to work on spinning during the semester.   Sad
a couple of alpaca singles:




last time i worked with alpaca i plied it and i think next time i will again.  the singles overspin too easily.

Yu guys are all kick-ass rock stars, look at you go. We didn't have market last week (pinata festival?) so I didn't get anything spun until today, at the market, but I did make $100 which is about $80 more than usual AND an invite to spin at a local fall festival next month. Woohoo! Inspiration to get my fleece clean! More inspiration: Belldune's pictures. It's a total "Your fleece could look like THIS" commercial for me, I just don't know how to wash it lock by lock. Maybe I should look that up, you know, since I can't take Master Spinner classes.

Bella, you and your bracelet yarn! Silly lady. I do agree, though, that black and white from LL should NOT be turned into anything but worn as it is. It's marvelous! I will wear it. Hey, give it to me. Wink

Puppygirl, nice. I find it's harder for me to spin singles on the wheel, though every time I use a spindle I make super singles. Just a thought. Stupid school, keeping you from spinning...

I agree, I woldn't mind petting a dirty Santa either...  Shocked

ETA: Sorry bout the horrid spelling today, you guys. You have no idea how many things I had to fix and it still came out like that. Ug. Stupid pregnancy brain (real medical term, I promise)
