I actually recently finished spinning "What We Do is Secret" Merino/Tencel.
It was a lovely experience.

Soooo soft.

Row 3, Column 2 is Merino/Tencel called "What We Do is Secret" (I'm actually spinning this right now!)
Row 1, Column 2 is Merino/Tencel again and that one is called "Wendybird"

Thanks for the compliments! Cheesy

I started dyeing wool about a month ago. Here's some of my stuff!  Cheesy

All of these are wool or wool blends, dyed with Dharma acid dyes.

Everyone's yarn looks great!

calluna, your core spinning looks great so far! I tried that once and it turned into a complete mess.

jexxican, you need to make that fat singles yarn into a hat! It would be fantastic. Maybe some matching mittens with the thinner ones? (Excuse me, but I've been dreaming about winter clothing lately!) I love them both.

tcmatteson, what kind of fiber was your roving? It looks like you're spinning gold!

I'm impressed with all the spindlers. I've tried one once, but didn't quite get it down before getting my wheel. I think I'll have to treat myself to one of these http://www.goldingfibertools.com/ringspindles some time soon, though.

Starting things off with a bang!

My first singles yarn, about fingering weight. 400 yards. Mixed BFL dyed by Corgi Hill Farm on etsy. Color is "Urban Decay".

2 ply SW BFL from Abstract Fibers. "Chartreuse", although I like to call it "Beware, Poisonous".

I think these first two might actually work well in a shawlette together.  We'll see.

And my first 3-ply! This one was supposed to be SW BFL, but I'm pretty sure it's SW Merino. "Storybook" from Woolen Mill St. Yarns.

Destined for some awesome princess socks for me.

Thank you, inez! Your singles are beautiful. I've never done singles, but I will have to soon. Plying is my favorite part  Cheesy

Finally! My first Fiber Friday  Cheesy 

"Frolic" 200 yards superwash merino, navajo ply. Fiber is from Micamynx on etsy.

"Dark Pheasant" 900 yards Falkland, two ply. Fiber from Rogue Adventures on etsy.

"Oasis" 900 yards lace weight Tussah Silk, two ply. Fiber from Corgi Hill Farm on etsy.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tri-Force Beanie on: December 10, 2009 10:02:47 AM
My twin brother's birthday is coming up (which yes, means it is MY birthday too!) so I wanted to knit something quick that could be there before the weekend (I am in Oregon and he is in Idaho).
We grew up playing Zelda, so what could be better than a nerdy beanie that pays a homage to the best video game (series) of all time?
I had my mom measure his head for me, and it was exactly the same size as mine. How great!
Excuse the pictures. Finished the hat at 2am and couldn't wait to show it off!

I used the Slacker Hat pattern found here:http://vegancraftastic.blogspot.com/2008/11/slacker-hat-pattern.html
Made up a quick chart on paper for the tri-force and did it in duplicate stitch.
Was a really quick knit using size 10 needles and Vanna's Choice yarn.
The yellow is a little more yellow and the green is a bit more olive-y in real life.
