I have one yarn to offer up this week. Its was originally 4oz corriedale Spunky Club Roving in Rosebud but I thought it needed some oomph. I ran the roving through the carder with white/gold angelina and came up with these batts
Then using a long draw I spun a lose woolen single that was about dk weight and andean plied it to create a bulky 2 ply yarn.

I'm using it to knit the trim/edges on the one skien sweater from the One Skein Wonders book.

I thought since the baby who the sweater is for is called Veronica Rose that the Rosebud roving should be made into something for her.

2  Bellydance/Mermaid Costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by Star217 on: July 11, 2008 07:49:44 AM
I know it's not halloween, but I'm wearing a costume in public anyway. Every year there's this insane parade out on Coney Island in NYC called the Mermaid Parade and people come dressed as (you guessed it) MERMAIDS!!!! Well they really come dressed as lots of things its more of a "Let your freak flag fly" day then an actual structured parade. For pics of the insanity click here but be warned there will be boobs! A bunch of friends and I decided to march this year and I had to make an awesome costume. I'm a bellydancer by night (and a fancier by day but don't tell anyone I have such a normal job) so I decided to combine a bellydancer and a mermaid and this is what I came up with.

I made the tail out of some lame fabrics, the base is textured and the bottom is simply a pleated triangle (no shaping needed) and I stuffed it with aqua tulle to give it a full look.
The top is a bra that I cut the straps off and replaced with sequined elastic trim to create a halter. Then I individually glued the sequins to the bra cups and sewed on the chains and pearls. I also had the center beads on jump-rings and the pearls side bits are sewn to the bra and strung on that elasticized jewelry wire (it's plastic I don't know the real name for it)

(Me and craftster user Molliemoo2883)
I also made her a tail out of sateen fabric and stuffed the bottom of it with tee-shirts for weight. She made her shirt with puff paint and my mom's help

Thanks for looking!

I have one yarn to share this week.
"Think Srping" from Spunky Eclectic's FOTM. It's South African Fine which felt rather rough in roving form but made a very nice soft lofty yarn.

Thick and thin Bulky weight 4oz 280 yards
I knit the One Skein Wonder Baby Sweater out of it, (currently blocking pics coming soon) I figured only a baby girl could get away with these colors.

Oh and I knit a hat out of the yarn from last week.

The base yarn is Lambs Pride Bulky and the stripe is my own "Shocking" yarn from last fiber friday!

Okay so no one's started the thread yet I guess I have the honors.

The first up is girl scout cookie from a batt I recieved in a swap. It's alpaca, wool and angelina. Spun on my drop spindle worsted weight a little less then 2oz and 80 yards single.


The second yarn is also alpaca about 300 yards 3.3oz two ply sport weight spun using the long draw. I had a hard time prepping the alpaca and I realized the best way was to break out my very neglected hand cards and make some rolags.
