knittydread- Thank you! Your combo yarns are always freaking awesome. Makes me wish I had the patience to do one. lol

dragonflower- Thanks. Cheesy It's becoming a hat... slowly. Tongue

Jexx / nikschaf- Spinning with the sari was interesting. I've never done it before this. If it's clumped up in your batt, it doesn't really pull apart that well. So you get little knobbly bits. I'd say it's unrealistic to spin a thin, smooth yarn with sari. But if you like that texture, it is really fun to work with. (It also got ALL OVER my clothes, but with cats and a fiber addiction, that wasn't really anything new. lol)

Great yarn everyone!

I haven't posted to (or started!) a fiber friday in a long time!

I didn't check the yardage on this, but I spun it really thin and then chain plied it. It's roughly 2-3 ounces from a batt of merino and firestar.

this shows the colors more true to life.

Also haven't checked the yardage of this, but it's 3.3 ounces of black merino carded with a crap ton of sari silk and firestar. My first yarn with a ton of texture. LOVE IT!

I spun it pretty thick n' thin, I wasn't really paying attention to how it was drafting because I wanted it to be fun and carefree. I was watching tv the whole time. Mindless spinning, fun!

Can't wait to see what everyone else has this week!

omg, Angry Hippie, those batts are gorgeous.

I can't wait to get all our stuff moved to our new house so I can start spinning again. Cheesy

Angry Hippie- EVERY WEEK you inspire me to sit down and spin. I don't know how you find the time to crank out so much yarn, it's insane. Your yarns are gorgeous. Cheesy

Everyone else- Fantastic stuff this week! Mullerslane, you make me want to knit socks. (And I never say that.)

Whew, Catielove that's a lot of yardage?  What are you going to make with it?

I have not spun a single thing in 2011.  How is this possible?  Gotta get out of this slump!

Not a single clue. I have a ton of handspun... not a lot of projects. lol I like spinning much more than I like knitting and crocheting. I might actually break this in half and ply them together. It's not a very strong yarn. :/

Holey Moley, 390 yards of... um... probably BFL. I'm not sure. lol My longest single yet.

Wee bit late, but to be fair, I didn't get home until 6 this morning. lol

Merino & Tencel, I believe it's 150 yards. I think this is going to turn into an elf hat for a baby. Smiley

Love the color of that yarn! I'm still working on the rainbow colored merino/tencel from last week. Been having some trouble with my hip that makes me feel like an old woman. lol

^Awesome thing is I never intended for them to BE coils, they just turned out that way. lol

Great yarns, everyone!  I love fiber. Cheesy

The lack of fiber-y goodness lately makes me sad. Though I haven't contributed much either.

Merino, food coloring dyed, plied w/ thread. 100+ yards? I forget. Cheesy

60/30/10 Merino, bamboo, nylon in 'Sleeping Beauty' from Sheepish Creations on Etsy. Cheesy 130 yards, fingering/lace weight. Hasn't been set yet so I haven't checked wpi.

My WIP this week. Cheesy Merino/tencel This is SO. SOFT. Spinning it up really thin to hopefully get enough for a good 2 ply. Might ply it with some coordinating merino, I haven't decided yet.
