Pretty, pretty ignorantamoeba! I like the names you've chosen for your yarns; Abram's one of my favorite names. As for your yarn, Cecily is my favorite. I love the yellows and grays together.

Belladune, I love the BFL roving in the blue/purple/yellow combination. That is going to be gorgeous when it's spun up.

yberry, your merino/tencel blend is beautiful! Did you dye that yourself? It looks like silver and gold.

Cya, how much yardage do you have there? When a yarn is too itchy for my liking, I usually make fingerless mitts that can go over gloves. I love the colors, by the way. It's going to look awesome when it's knitted.

SensiblyTacky, I love, love, love Summer Salad! It looks so smooshy and the colors are great. I'd love a hat made out of that yarn; it would be so cheery!

nikolelily, pretty neckwarmer. That's a great shade of pink. Your yarn is so nice and even.

I finished spinning some Samoyed fur that an acquaintance gave to me. I initially has wished she had given me more (I know she has it, but didn't want to overwhelm me with her dog's hair), but I'm glad she only gave me a bit. I do not like spinning dog fur. At least, I didn't like spinning that dog's fur. But, the final product came out nice and here are some pictures. It's 65 yards of fingering:

Looking forward to seeing other Fiber Friday offerings!

First up, an art yarn I spun for the Fiber Friday group on Ravelry. The mod gives a theme on Friday and then people post their yarns on that theme during the week. Last week was "Ocean", so I spun this, "Atocha":

There's tons of fibers in there: flax, cotton, bamboo, a couple of different hand dyed rovings, some turquoise mill ends, black alpaca, silk, mohair, silver glitz. Oh, and recycled turquoise nylon from a pair of vintage tights!

Here's a swatch:

Another yarn I spun this week is from a roving I dyed a long time ago, called "Sea Juice". I tried out the technique of spinning a thick single, fulling and then spinning in the opposite direction. It worked really well!

And lastly, here's some Corriedale I dyed with Kool-Aid and Wiltons; it's for a feather and fan shawl. I'm going to ply it with a brown Corriedale single:

Great yarns this week, everyone! I <3 Fiber Friday.

My stash has reached frightening proportions, but as big as some of the spinners on here! I have seven pounds of raw wool, and as for the rest, roving and such... well, I lost track months ago.  Tongue

Here's pictures that I have on Flickr. Doesn't really begin to cover it.:
