You guys have done such great stuff! <3 I'm so happy to see what you've been doing. I've just been lurking as of late. But I did some spinning this week.

I spun my singles



Then I did my first ever 3-ply with them. It seems to turn out well. I'm waiting for my niddy noddy to arrive in the mail so I can skein it out.


The blue and green seem to blend in together. I could have done better with that. But I'm still happy.

Andean ply, or Navajo?  I think it might look lovely andean, to mix up the colors.  But the striping effect when you  Navajo ply is cool to.

Lots of lovely batts, Jexx!  And yay!  yarn from the batt I sent!  It looks lovely!  Did it spin up easily?

Lovely work Brea!  I like the way the three colors play off eachother!

They really should re-name that wool.  Roll Eyes  It made me giggle.  I teach preschool, and last year we had a student with autistic tendencies who would apparently re-enact the arguments her parents had.  She was Spanish, and apparently her parents used that (insert name of wool here) word A LOT!  Grin Tongue

I know its Saturday, but this is what I've been up to.
Here we have some wool-that-should-be-renamed, dyed grey and light blue. Its a pretty consistent worsted weight single, unknown yardage. I also made the drop spindle, it was a failed attempt at making it sparkly but it has a really balanced spin and has turned into my favorite. Smiley

Next up is some alpaca that I spun up really fine, andean plied, then dyed crazy bright pink in my crock pot. I used Wiltons food coloring in Rose, and its really bright. Cheesy Theres about 180 yards total, I wound it into a ball and started a triangle granny scarf with it before I remembered to take pictures of it. Oops! lol.

Hope everyone has a fiber-filled weekend!

Breabadair, I think it looks great. Seeing all 3 singles makes me happy, too.
Belladune, it did spin up nicely. It looked rougher than it was.
Rodelphia, those are both lovely. That pink is so bright! Your Wool-that-shall-not-be-named looks so soft. Those colors compliment it well.
I think I need to send a message to the Sheep Shed...
