Wow- it's been awhile! I know it's technically no longer friday, but I have here 236 yards of superwash marino, sport to DK weight... I dyed it myself and navajo plied it. I'm thinking some wacky socks?

Thanks guys! I'll try the ping test! I actually just spun some of the prepared batt and it came out ok- The fiber is a little nubby but not bad. I even navajo plied it without breakage. It seems to be holding if I overspin it a little, which really isn't a problem for me. I know, I truly couldn't even believe it! The guy charged me 5 bucks for all of it!

So today I was at the dump and set aside in the store/salvage area I happened to find 5 garbage bags of prepared white wool roving ready to spin, a few bags of mixed, dyed bits of fiber, a full washed fleece and another bag of locks. I couldn't even believe by eyes, and I even made my wonderful trusting friend that was with me take a whiff all the while asking her "does it smell like sheep?Huh Does it?" The date on the washed fleece says it is from 1997. I am not sure how old the rest of it is but it appears to be in good shape. Is there a way to tell if it is still "good" and is there an expiration date on something like this? I hope not because I feel like today was one of those truly lucky, random, blessed days! Thanks all!

Thanks, Bella! I love that colorway- It looks just like some silk blend top I got at the fiber festival! Sooo pretty!

2 ply BFL top bought off of ETSY (not dyed by myself :-(  ) But I still like how it came out! About 268 yards DK to Worsted. I have so many yummy things from the Rhinebeck Fiber fest to spin up! Can't wait!

This post is something I look forward to every week and it means a lot to receive praise from you all! Rusty is the sweetest, and more importantly, most tolerant dog in the universe, not to mention pretty stinkin' cute! I love all the yarns this week, and I'm sorry, after reading through the posts, that my name is so similar to another yarn- I think the season just inspires fruity drink names!

I haven't posted in a long long time, but I've been practicing spinning! All three are navajo plied, which I need to work on. I manage to break the yarn a lot, so if anyone has any advice I would appreciate it! All are hand dyed white roving from "Knit Picks."
So without further ado, my lovely model Rusty will show you the latest in homespun fashions.....

Black Watch (60 yards bulky)

High Seas (185 yards bulky thick and thin)

Razzleberry Lemonade (45 yards bulky)

All three!
Thank you all for your inspiration, ideas, and advice!

I haven't posted in a long time but I always visit fiber fridays eagerly! I bought a used louet a few months ago and here is my first born of any quantity! 195 yards of 2 ply merino wool bought at the Rhinebeck fiber fest. The colorway is Mojave.
Please keep the yarn porn coming everyone!

It's on my to-dp list too! I would love to knit along- maybe after the holidays though!

This is so beautiful and simple! I love it! I think that the feather picture on your blog is equally amazing!
