I use a Popsicle container thing to make my son Kefir Popsicle. Kefir yogurt is really good for you and he loves them.

Lovely yarn nittydread and nikscharf!

Jexxican, I really don't know what woolen is. I spin with a drop spindle and that was just some braided roving I split into long this strips. I think most of my yarn seems woolen but I don't know. Trying to learn all the different things about it but it is so confusing since I use a drop spindle only and everything seems to be about wheels.

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.

That yarn Belladune, is my favorite!! I love those colors and it is soo even. Great job

The part that hurts me hand is the winding. It hurts me thumb to hold the spindle and turn it to wind the yarn on. Never did before only recently.

That stuff is so pretty, love the texture of the bottom two and the walking dead is perfectly named!

Here is my contribution

Jelly Bean 4 oz. Merino, DK navajo plied 250 yrds.

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

The color of rovings you choose I would think wouldn't look good together but you make them so gorgeous!

Gives me good inspiration.

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.

Thanks. The second one is actually a 75% bamboo 25% merino mix. I hated spinning it, I never spun bamboo before and it was not easy to draft. But I do like the outcome.

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.
