Finally have something small to share, I never get enough to time to spin Sad I wanted to try some art yarn, so I tried to make coils/beehives, first time not too great second time was a little better. Still not sure how to actually do them but I liked the outcome.

Lovely yarns everyone.

This is half my braid of 70% Alpaca and 30% Silk blend from knittyandcolor. Second time doing a 2 ply using the andean method. Actually do it  this way with a book http://rosemaryknits.blogspot.com/2006/08/andean-plying-bracelet-simplified.html and it is great.

Twigs and Berries 2 ply about a Fingering weight 186 yrds. 2 photos because the first one is a little dark, second shows color a bit better. Loved spinning this, can't wait to start spinning the rest.

Drop spinning is starting to really hurt  my hands, I plan on making my own spinning wheel this summer, I hope it works out.

Your yarn is always so gorgeous, I love your colors!

Here are a few things I did this week. All are around 100yrds or so of fingering singles. Been trying to spin as evenly as I can and I am getting better.

The last two photos of are samplers I received in my PhatFiber Fluff Sample Box. Love the Phat fiber boxes they are awesome!

Some mohair blend I received years ago with my sheep shed studio buy.

Phat Fiber Sample various wools and some firestar

Another Sample, various wools too.

I've been a lurker here for awhile. Love everyone's yarns, so pretty. I finally have something to show. I don't spin a lot but I am going to try and get into it a little more.

Here is some sheep shed studio white that I got years ago, dyed with food coloring.

And this one I did a little back ago but finally got photos. It is a batt purchased from Knitpicks by Hanks in the Hood, Gasworks Park batt. It was my first time navajo plying and I loooove it.

I am trying to learn how to sew wearable garments. So I try to pick easier patterns. They aren't the best pieces but I am learning.
I made this one first:

I didn't know what I was doing so I just using some premade bias tape around all the edges. I had no idea how to use interfacing. It is okay, but need black stockings for it.

Then I  made this one but lengthened it and tried to use interfacing on the neck. It came out much better but now I am not sure about the print I used:

The neck line is even but my hair was pushing one side open.

Here is a close up of the fabric:

I have a question. Does the second one look weird with that print? It was cute on the bolt but now I think it looks too wintery/girly. I may make belts to help cinch the waist too.

here is a new tank I made using some remnants fabric. I am still getting used to construction so I miss a few details like doing a better hem and such but in time.

I just noticed the straps are uneven in the back. They were causing me the most problems. I will have to redo them again
