So, I thought I should finish spinning and plying the fiber on the Louet before I had any more fun with the Kromski so here's my finished skeins for today

Here is some merino that the owner of my LYS dyed herself.  There is about 4 oz and I got 110 yards of 2-ply

This is the Dandylion, Spunky Fiber of the Month.  I had 4 oz and got 158yards of 2-ply out of it (the most yardage I ever got out of 4 oz of fiber!!!)

and now, to go play with the Kromski!  My kids don't need to eat, right?  Wink

I know that I haven't been posting many pics of my Tour spinning, but I've just been proud of myself for actually doing the spinning.  The picture taking seems to be beyond me Smiley

BUT,  The fam and I went to a fiber fest yesterday.

Did Chipper spin? are you wondering? 

Oh yes, Chipper spun!

Chipper spun llama and it was heavenly.

Chipper spun on a new wheel that made her smile and sigh so peacefully, that her wonderful, fantastic, super husband couldn't resist the call of the wheel

Yup, (here I'll stop referring to myself in the third person cause it's starting to creep me out Wink ) That there is my new wheel in my back yard.  I also got a bit of the llama fiber from the man who I bought the wheel from cause he said that my face was radiant while spinning it and I'd need it to get used to my new wheel.  Since the hubby was treating me to a new wheel, I decided to throw in a bag of bison cause, well, if I was going to be spoiled, I may as well be spoiled big, right?  Smiley

Even though, I haven't been posting pics of my spinning, I really have been loving all the pics of your spinning.  I want to pet every single one of them! Smiley

Here's a pic of the Monster Mash yarn that my kids helped me spin

Here's a pic of two of the kids with the wheel (the third one wanted nothing to do with the camera today, go figure Smiley )

and here's a close up of the hat that I knit for the monsters, I mean kids Smiley

The yarn stats are 4oz of hand painted falkland, Spunky FOTM Club, October 06, called Monster Mash.  I have no idea what kind of yardage we got out of it (darn that missing niddy noddy)

Now we're off to spin some for another hat Smiley

I was just uploading my pics to start this thread cause I was so surprised that it hadn't been started yet Smiley  you beat me while uploading, but I'll forgive ya Wink

this is merino and the roving was called Peacock.  I started with about 5 oz and ended up with 145 yards.

This is optim (stretched merino) called Grand Canyon.  Started with 4oz here and got about 76 yards

Another optim called Dove.  Started with 4 oz and got 102 yards.  This yarn was so exciting to me because it was the first time that I ever got 100+ yards out of 4 oz of fiber.  I can't even comprehend how you ladies get 200+yards of plied yarns from 4 oz or less.  You are my heros!

and lastly the Spunky Fiber of the Month for May (coopworth sliver called Nightshade)  There was 4 oz here but I didn't count the yardage yet.  I might try plying this with something else, it seems to scream "I need a little sparkle" to me Smiley

Here's my Seven the day after we got her

and here she is just yesterday (about 2 1/2 weeks later)

Not super-great pics cause the little stinker is always moving too much for a good pic unless she's eating.   

In the last week, she's decided that toys are fun.  She loves to throw them around.  She's also figured out that sometimes the hubby and I watch some tv after we get the kids to bed.  I usually get her out and let her sit on my lap and brush her.  If the hubby is watching tv while I get the kids to sleep, Seven goes 'crazy' in her cage, thumping her feet, throwing her toys, and banging on the cage door.  She's so impatient while waiting for me to come get her (the hubby isn't brave enough to get her out yet, I'm not sure why). 

Do your bunnies have free rein of the house?  or a portion of it?   We have a small, closed in porch that we put the hutch in and so we let her have the porch as her play ground.  She will get to running and hopping around so much.  It's so funny to watch.

Love the furry photos!

I've (finally) been busy this week.  I tend to spin the most in the spring, weave the most in the fall and fill in the summer and winter with sewing, knitting, crocheting and whatever else I can think of.   All this just explains why I have five pics this week Smiley

this one was a beautiful batt that I got from knitwit

this one was from SpunkyEclectic

This is a FOTM from Spunky called Strawberry Fields

This is some handpainted merino I got at a local yarn/spinning store

This one is some optim that I got from the same LYS.  It was (is, of course I already went back to get more Wink ) heavenly to spin.

All of your yarns are so beautiful!  Thanks for inspiring me year round even though I'm just a springtime spinner Smiley

Oops.  I almost forgot...

Like hobbledehoy, I have a new spinning buddy

Her name is Seven and there are many more pics of my new baby on my blog

8  My green woven blanket in Weaving: Completed Projects by chipper on: April 06, 2007 09:12:57 AM
A couple of days before St Patrick's Day, I decided that I needed a green blanket.   I wove it on my 7ft adjustable triangle loom using the full 7ft.  I made the 'plaid' up as I went along.  When I finished the first tri, I just pushed it to the back of the nails and wove the second one right on top (that way I didn't have to remember the pattern).  

Here is the beginning of the first tri

and here is the finished blanket

I used 11 skeins of Lamb's Pride worsted with only about 1/2 a skein of the cream left over.

I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to get here.  I completely forgot that the gallery was separate from the original thread (yeah, i'm not that bright lately!) and so had to look through all 12 pages of fibery goodness!

Holy cow!  all the scarves look so awesome!!!

Here's a pic of all my yarn

Here's a pic of my scarf

I love it.  I really thought that I would braid it up and give it to the kids for dress up and playing, but it's mine, all mine!!! Smiley

thanks for all the fun, Ladies!!!   I think I'm gonna hit the stash and make some more today

it took me forever to shake the flower-block, but finally came up with this.

It started it's flowery life out as a bar of felted soap.  The soap was down to just a few slivers and I saw the potential.  I needle and wet felted the yellow and green and then needled them onto the flower.
