Hey, where's all the yarn??? Other than that stunning nut yarn, I mean :-P I've only got two finished yarns to show, all my others being still in progress. Feel free to check out my handspun projects over on Ravelry for random balls of not-yet-plied yarn (I have the same username over there).

Here's a fingering weight superwash I dyed myself as top. It should become socks for my fiance before next Christmas. Or it will sit in my stash looking pretty...

And this is the only picture that really shows off the colours of my first successful singles yarn, and support spun to boot! It turned out laceweightish, made from batts that reminded me of Japanese maples in autumn. I just let the fibre do whatever it wanted with minimal futzing over lumps. I had to knit with it right away :-P

What have you guys been working on?

gorgeous yarns, Alexus!  Love the way the singles yarn is working up.

I've been swamped with life.. darn life... I do have some yarns to share, but I haven't got them up loaded. It's mostly samples, again. But it's something!

I love seeing your golden fleece samples! I hope you have time tomorrow to show them off, I'm feeling kinda lonely in here :-P
