FINALLY! Pictures!

Lamamarco, I didn't think you were being rude in the least.  I was just frustrated that I couldn't find my stupid camera.  But she has been found!  And I have pictures!  

(Please excuse the exclamation points.  I have the day off and I'm a bit excited about it.)

First, two headbands, a cute tiny card, NINE adorable buttons, and a darling pair of beaded earrings.

My brand new needle roll closed.

Needle roll opened.  (Note the stylin' green chalkboard with cursive letter practice fabric.  aka the best fabric ever.)

Thanks again for the fabulous package.

This swap has been wonderful.

My Fiber Friday the Thirteenth contribution, from the quickly fading natural light...

Your Majesty Merino from Spunky Eclectic
Single plied with white thread
~150 yards

The former WIP, now FO, that kept me from posting Fiber Friday pics last week.
4oz Wool Blend Moonflower (Almost Solid Series) from Spunky Eclectic
4oz Red Maple Corriedale (Almost Solid Series) from Spunky Eclectic
Both spun 2-ply bulky and knit into my non-Craftster-reading-sister's Christmas present.

First off, taking pictures of monofilament isn't listed on the "Special Skills" section of my resume, so please excuse the quality of the photos.  (Also excuse the dust on my wheel.  Apparently the lovely brown roving I got at the county fair wasn't the cleanest in the world.)

From the outside, the bottom of the spring is hooked to the eyelet and the brake band is tied (very tightly) to the top of the spring.

The brake band then travels up and around the grooved end of the bobbin (the fat end), but under the maiden.

Then the band goes through the eyelet on the inside.  Cut the band and give yourself some excess for making another knot at one end of the other spring. Tie that end to the spring, then with whatever you have left, tie another very tight knot at the other end of the spring.  Thread the end of the excess through the hole in the tensioning knob, poke the knob back in its hole, then wrap the excess around the knob.

If you have any other questions, just let me know.  I never would have gotten my wheel running in the beginning without the help of our fellow Craftsters.  I completely understand how you feel!

My first ever Fiber Friday post.  I can hardly contain my excitement. 

Background: I've been spinning for about two months.  I spin on an Ashford Traditional.  All my friends think I'm a bit nutty with the whole spinning thing.  And, I worship the ground that all of you walk on.

Having said all that, here's yarn from this week, created for my beautiful knitter sister-in-law for her 22nd birthday.
