One tiny skein.  That's all I have pictures of because, for some reason, the battery didn't charge on my camera.  I'll share more once the battery charges.
It's much more green in real life.... if my battery doesn't go wonky again, I'll replace it with a better photo.


Here's a better pic of color:

I love that yarn, Belladune!

I've made more yarns on my fancy cardboard whorl spindle, but don't have pics yet. I did get a few (not very good) pics of the yarn I finished today. It's a very fine merino yarn ramen from a sweater that had snags in the front of it. I unraveled it and dyed the wool, then corespun it and thread-plyed it. This was very hard to do on my regular Babe wheel. I think I will have a better outcome on these bulky yarns once I find a way to get a bulky wheel.  Smiley

2 ply BFL top bought off of ETSY (not dyed by myself :-(  ) But I still like how it came out! About 268 yards DK to Worsted. I have so many yummy things from the Rhinebeck Fiber fest to spin up! Can't wait!

Thanks, Bella! I love that colorway- It looks just like some silk blend top I got at the fiber festival! Sooo pretty!

What a cool range of yarns this week!  I want to squish them all.

LaughingLark, I am impressed at the unraveled sweater yarn.  I tried unraveling a couple of thrift store sweaters once, but was unsuccessful.  Just couldn't get them unraveling smoothly, even though fibers weren't felted or anything.
