Hello and a happy Friday to you all.

My yarn this week was a first attempt at spinning foreign objects into a yarn.  Each bead and sequin was threaded onto a bit of roving and then spun into the white singles yarn.  I threaded lots of the objects onto purple, pink and turqoise bits of roving to get a little variation, and thought of rainbows and unicorns while I spun.  Then I plied with a fuschia semi-sparkly thrift store yarn of unknown fiber content.  I call it "Sparkle Princess," 150 yards.

Cool!!!

The only thing I spun up this week was 3 oz of black Corriedale.  It has already been knitted into a Shawlette:

The name is very fitting, Niks.  Beautiful.

That's a lovely shawl, Cyndi.

thanks! I actually bought that one dyed, it's a colorway by Jazz Turtle.  And to be honest, the second one might be... I have no idea where that one came from! lol

lovely spinnings, all!
After not wanting to deal with the hassle of getting pictures taken/edited/uploaded for a long time, I had several handspuns to share this week...but I can't get the pics from the camera into the computer. (Same hassles I'd been trying to avoid.  Tongue) Maybe next week!
