Late start, but better then never, right?

Nothing of great yardage, but I'm on my pre Fibre Week panic to get all my homework done.  So it's mostly going to be mini skeins for a while.

Let's start with the "recreate a commercial yarn" homework. 
Here's the first attempt (with the commercial yarn beside):

And the subsequent attempts. 4 in total, and I've not done it yet. It's harder then it should be!

A couple blends, just because we need to do some blends to prove we learned something in level 2 (or so I assume.)

BFL/Silk

and I've gone crazy and thought to make a sweater, and I don't think my yarn is as thick as I thought it was. But while I've shared it before, it's in ball form, and makes a pretty picture.

Anyone else been up to any yarn fun?

It all looks beautiful Belladune! The BFL/Silk is my favorite, but then again I love spinning that blend so I may be a little biased. I for one really like it when you share your homework with us, even mini-skeins.

Thanks Jexx.  I'll keep sharing the homework. It's so much to do, and i can't just pop off the required 30 odd skeins (or how ever many there are) I have to be picky, and get it right. So it's taking a lot longer then I'd planned. Sad or well. I'll survive. and get it done, and share Smiley
