I need to get good enough to spin fingering weight. You inspire me.

I actually have something to share this week!  I just need to get home and take pictures.  It's still on my spindle, but I'm too excited to not share.

Very pretty, I like the red and grey one.

I don't have anything finished this week, instead I have 3 different singles that I haven't figured out how to complete.  Maybe you guys will have some ideas.

This one might just end up staying like this.  I was thinking about plying it with another color, but nothing looks right yet.

The bobbin is a single of a fiber batt of unknown origin that I found in my stash. There wasn't very much of it, so I blended up the batt in the background to use in plying.  Will have to see how that goes.

This is another batt of unknown origin.  It is really bright and I'm not a huge fan of orange, so I haven't figure out what to do with it yet.

I've got this on my bobbin. Although now it's been navajo plied.

I was going to use it for the swap I'm in but the colors of the batt looked much more like what I wanted than the finished yarn does. Oh well!

Inie_rah, I've just got Lexi Boegers new book in, and she has a method where you navajo ply with 3 yarns held as one, and I bet those 3 would look awesome together.

Nice colors, Jungrrl Smiley
