Oooo...I like that Mullerslane Smiley

This is some wool I got from Sheep Shed Studio, mill end roving. I dyed it with acid dyes, but the colors spun up a little muddier than I wanted. It was spun on my homemade drop spindle with the aid of power tools lol I stuck the end of my spindle into my husband's drill, leaned the drill up against a boot on the floor and used my foot to push the 'trigger' on the drill. Hooray for variable speed drills!
The colors do remind me of fall..reds, oranges, browns, a little green and yellow...

Yay! My first Fiber Friday!

My first! From dirty fleece to this...It was spun on a drop spindle I made and then I dyed it with Kool-Aid. It's only about 20 yds.


Poor Little No-Name


My second! This was spun from about 2oz. of naturally dyed (walnut and goldenrod) roving a friend gave me. This was also spun on my homemade drop spindle. It's about 93 yds.
