Yay! I haven't been spinning as much as I'd like. I'd go into the list of excuse/reasons, but it's too boring and lame and I'd rather not relive it. But it's nice to see so many pretty yarns!!! Lovely lovely lovely.

Here's 2 I did this week.
This first one is just different colors of merino...

and then this one is spun from a batt I carded out of some alpaca, merino, bamboo and sparkle...

There were a couple other batts I carded and then spun up, but i've knitted them into pieces for my bike cozy. Smiley

A couple of pair of mitts. The first with some fiber I purchased at Country Yarns in Snohomish, WA...

...which I spun into this mess of lovely...

...and then knit into these mitts which were gifted to a friend at work...

She was very happy.

Next up is some yarn I spun from a varied assortment of Phat Fiber samples. This was my VERY FIRST NAVAJO PLY. Yay! It was quite the bitch. It kept breaking and falling apart, but I actually liked how the yarn turned out....
...I made these weirdo mitts for myself...

...and I totally love them. Smiley

Finally, I'm actually posting while it's still Friday!! I am loving what I see so far, but am too exhausted at the moment to really post coherent compliments, so I shall return tomorrow to do that. (Hopefully there will be some more up by then too!) Smiley

I only have a couple of offerings today. Next week I should have more because I am going to spinning class tomorrow to learn how to Navajo ply! (and whatever else Barbara wants to teach us!)

This first is a 50/50 mix of merino and silk that I purchased at Country Yarns in Snohomish, WA. It's by Jewel Fiber design. It's 150 yards of worsted-ish. Maybe light worsted....I dunno.

This next is made from some Merino that I dyed with blue Koolaid! This was part of my first dyeing attempt, but I managed to felt it pretty good. I currently am lucky enough to have a borrowed drum carder in my possession, so I ran it through there with a bit of bamboo, wensleydale locks, and some sparkle. I'm pretty happy with the result...

It's really hard to get the sparkle in pictures!

Oh my...I'm really late! I hope you don't mind. It's my weekend to work so my whole week was all thrown off, but I did spin a couple of skeins.

But first the love....

volomortuus: that is the best yarn EVER! I love love love it.
jets to july: that is absolutely gorgeous and I hope you'll be posting the hat you make!
hippie: what can I say? You're going to get a big head if I compliment you any more. Smiley Smiley I really really love Aphotic and your unnamed one.
oddacity: you have a very lucky friend!
jexx: so freaking amazing! And I love the fiber heart.
Ospreywife: I love the color and the bulkiness
nikschaf: LOVELY! I want to squish it!

These are both fiber purchases from "Spin Stitch Sew."

The first is 105 yards of Wendsleydale. Unnamed at the moment...

And the second is 120 yards of BFL I like to call "Aquarium"...

I think they are both probably worsted.

And here's a pic of the other fiber nut in my house. Smiley

You spared no details...this is seriously incredible! Would it be weird if I said that I think I love you?!
