Hi Everyone!
Beautiful yarns this week!!

I haven't spun much this week because I have been dealing with a terrible bout of vertigo.  Anything spinny made me dizzy.. my carder, my wheel, scrolling the computer screen..  It's been awful!

I did manage to get a couple done.. and we got a new camera this week, so I'm just loving the 12x zoom and macro function!

This one will stripe (w/4 repeats) in bold pink, blue and green, with natural brown shetland in between each one..   There's TONS of sari silk and sari silk waste in all colors.. so the striping may be subtle..
Mumbai Nights (yardage not measured yet)

I carded up a batt of black merino, with TONS of rainbow angelina.  I made some freeform felt nubbies by putting handfuls of scrap fiber into a mesh bag, and washing it on hot with soap.
I corespun the batts, adding the felt nubbies..
Rock Show (no yardage yet, but almost a lb skein!)

Finally, I spun up some yummy enchanted knoll batts thick and thin, with a metallic thread candy striping.  I then plied with a yellow rayon thread
One Fish, Two Fish (yardage not measured yet)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Here's my fiber wall..  all the cubbies are from target..  the top ones you can't see are filled with my shop batts.. the rest is fiber from other fiber artists Smiley

Here's my carding table, with fiber underneath it..  this was a few months ago.. so it's MUCH more packed under there now..  I mean it's crazy!!

My add in bins... also much more stuffed now.. I got a bunch of new colors of angelina and glitterati, and a new batch of sari silk ribbon and thrums, as well as new pom poms and silk flowers that are all now in these bins as well..

oy.. I need more space LOL!!

Happy Friday folks!! Well.. it's just after midnight, so it's technically Friday here! LOL!
I have a super early flight to catch tomorrow to Chicago, so I won't have time to post then. and I've spun some yarns I'm really excited about.. so I figured I'd share before I went to bed.. since it is Friday.. lol!!

The first is my most favorite!! I'm taking it with me to start knitting with. It was for the shop.. but I just can't let it go!! LOL!!
I spun some amazing yarnzombie (lufah) balls that were a blue/lavender and green. there were super awesome scotch mule locks and tons of sparkle! Jacki called them Tide Pool.  I really wanted the yarn to look like a tide pool, so I corespun the roving, and added tail spun locks, bits of fleece and different sparkle to mimic the critters you find in tide pools.
128 yards

Here is a fun "scrap" yarn on the bobbin.. this is a HUGE pile of random fiber that I put on the floor and just pull from..

Here's the finished yarn.. 6 oz, 80 yards, SUPER bulky

Here's another yummy corespun I finished yesterday..

Loop feb batt corespun.. with a few spots wrapped in pink lurex yarn, with some gold "key" charms

I can't wait to see what everyone else has spun when I get into Chicago tomorrow, and back to a computer!!  I hope everyone has a great day!!
