This gallery is really fantastic! I couldn't even list everything that blows me away... but I want to say well done so far!  Grin

I'd like to show off what the lovely Jazzybelle sent to me. I feel really lucky because shortly after this swap started my life got sort of hard and I didn't do as much as I wanted to for her... and yet, she was there for me and did a great job anyway. Everything suits me well - Thanks Jaz!  Kiss

Cute bicycle fabric and homemade knitting needles:

art! Bicycle art! yay!

A really sweet hand knitted bag:

A bike cube, a wallet and matching coin purse, and a stunning mixed paper journal that ties with ribbon that's too nice to use (!)

Homespun. Beautiful - THANK YOU. It's a big treat to be able to knit with someone else's homespun:

I'm just loving everything - thanks for making all this great stuff Jazzybelle! You really did a great job!

Hi everyone! Happy fiber Friday! Yay! I didn't want to double post yarn pictures on Craftster so here is a group shot of what I spun this week. Detailed pics are in the Tour de Fleece thread. Yes, now that it's over I won't have this problem again for a while.  Wink

I love this week's yarns - I can't even list them all but I love them!  Smiley

I'm totally blown away by all of the amazing spinning here! Good job everyone!  Grin
Here are the last yarns I've got for the Tour...

Feathers: 69 yards, 2.2 oz. I spun this on challenge day.

Small box: 85 yards, 1.8 oz.

Woodland sprite: 1.8 oz, 77 yards.

Neapolitan: Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry inspired yarn with ice cream cone charms! The charms were made by Laughing Lark. 78 yards, 2.9 oz.

This last yarn was spun on the last day of the Tour de Fleece, 2007... while watching the last day of the Tour de France on TV. It's a tribute to the yellow jersey on the cobblestones of Paris. It's a single yarn made from natural merino, hand-dyed yellow mill ends, and recycled sari silk. 81 yards, 1.9 oz.

Again, well done spinners!  Smiley

Okay, here are the week's yarns:

Contador: Here is a yarn made in honor of the young cyclist Alberto Contador. This was spun on the day he won his first stage ever in the Tour de France. The colors of his Discovery team (blue, green, black) are here with white for the best young rider jersey he wears and one yellow stripe for the sleeve the Discovery team has in honor of Lance Armstrong. The whole deal is plied with wasabi green crochet cotton. 138 yards, 4 oz.

Montpellier: I spun this while watching the Tour de France wind it's way to Montpellier. Bold, bouncy colors plied with steel grey thread. Mixed wool, merino/tencel. 2.9 oz, 116 yards.

Velouria: some purples, wine, honey, mahogany, and peach plied with steel grey thread. Mixed wools, merino and tencel. 2.8 oz, 107 yards.

Sea Change: 2-ply wool progressing from blue to green to yellow.  3.5 oz, 99 yards.

Red Buttons: This yarn is hot! All shades of red, orange and yellows, plied with black thread strung with buttons. 3.2 oz, 142 yards.

Great yarn already! TGIFF! I've got 8 yarns done up this week for the Tour de Fleece. I just posted them in that thread here.  Just a tease:

How do you set dye in the oven? That sounds great  Smiley

I've got this week's yarns to share. I was going to post them for Fiber Friday but I htink I'll just put a group shot there and the real pictures here.

The first one: Rosebleed. This was spun from Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks fiber I got from a friend - the label was lost and I don't know the content but it is incredibly soft. It's a 2-ply that came out a bit thicker than I hoped but it's still pretty, in a bruisy kind of way. 3.8 oz. 80 yards.

Next up: I see you.This is a singles yarn spun from natural colored wool, hand-dyed purple and tan mill ends, and mohair. 3.6 oz. 121 yards.

The third yarn is called Volcano. This yarn is made from natural chocolate brown merino, hand dyed pale blue and orange mill ends, orange mohair and recycled sari silk, plied with cotton crochet thread strung with 75 glass amber beads. It reminds me of a volcano erupting on a clear day. 3.6 oz. 132 yards.

I spun a yarn last week called Canterbury. This week I've got Canterbury Junior. This yarn was made in the same way and used the leftover roving... I still love these colors! 2.3 oz. 90 yards.

The last yarn here is called July in the Alps. That's where the Tour de France was when I spun it. You may recognize the colors, as it is from the same roving as Canterbury. (Reminder: the roving I bought at Black Sheep Gathering from Ronnie's Homespun. This was dyed by her 9 year old grandson.) It's a somewhat energized single. 3 oz. 122 yards.

Feathers! I think I may have an idea for challenge day now. And I have feathers in my stash but I've resisted spinning with them until now.

I've been playing with silk too:

...And wool of course:

I'm starting to feel like this thread is the very best place to get a yarn fix - Yummy!

I saved a lot of the yarn I spun for the Fiber Friday thread but here is a duo of yarns I've been teasing all week. Same fiber, spun different thicknesses.
