Wonderful Yarns this week people!! 
I'm loving the colors and the coils especially!
Here's what I've been up to this week:
They are all merino

This one is a "mock" Malbrigio yarn.  I modeled it after a skien I bought and can't find any more of.  This one is being coveted by yours truly for a long time- heheh.

This one is called "antique valentines" it is marled and much prettier in person. Smiley 

This is on it's way to becoming armwarmers in the near future. It is sport weight and self striping.

The last one is called "cheetah" and is super squishy!

Can't wait to see more!!

I LOVE everyone's yarns this week, although my favorites have to be the glitzy ones, I love how they look with the black and white roving!
Here's my contribution for the week!

The first is a bulky skien of merino wool that I plied with orange wool.  I keep wanting to stuff my face into it because it is so soft.  Smiley

The second is a boucle yarn that I plied with white thread and added little bumps and coils to.  It reminds me of cheetos!

This last one reminds me of Mardi Gras.  It is 100% merino as well.

I cant wait to see the rest of the yarns this week!

Luxx, welcome to fiber friday! I love your bold colored yarn!
Knitwit, YUM! I especially love the one on second to the right side, it is so beautiful!
inle_rah, I love the top green one, I'm sure if you knit it up you wouldn't notice the thread problem as much?
Lyme, simply beautiful!  Rainbowfish is the perfect colors!
phantomssiren- Great roving choice and beautiful yarn!
niftyknitter- great job for your first wheel spun!--Keep at it, you'll get the hang of it!  what kind of wheel do you have?  
mandalinn- that bamboo looks so good I could eat it, or just pet it for hours! haha!

It seems as if the trend this week is plied yarns!  Here are mine for the week:
This is about 2 oz and 100 yards of merino/mohair (80/20) that I had been saving for a rainy day:

This is my first time playing around with adding some coils and trying to make a more interesting yarn:

And this one is just for fun:

The last two are also self striping.

Happy Friday everyone!

Hello all, I hope everyone had a fiber filled week!  

I've been a bit behind in the Fiber Friday business, so this week I decided to do a bunch of spinning on my lovely Louet S51 which is nicknamed "Bobby."    I have also recently discovered the joys of setting dye in an oven, which means bulk dyeing sessions in the near future! Smiley Here are some of my little creations from this week

This one is called Degas Blues and is 136 Yards of Bulky Yarn

Astro Pop, 94yds Super Bulky

Cape Cod, 144yds Heavy Worsted

Jewels, 125yds Heavy Worsted

I hope you all had a great week, and I can't wait to see everyone's yarns!

I love your bamboo yarn!  Where do you get your bamboo roving? I would love to try to dye some!
I have been super productive this week! Here is a sampling of what I got done:

This is about 266 yards of bulky weight yarn that is self-striping with a noro-esque effect.

This yarn is about 223 yards and is self-striping as well

This skein is 2ply and is about 107 yards.
I think I did about 11 skeins total this week! Yikes!
I am LOVING my wheel!
Happy Friday Everyone!

Here are my first three skeins of handspun!
I got the wool from RH Lindsay, it is just the domestic wool ($6 a pound!), and I made the spindle from random stuff I had around the house.

10  Crocheted Rings in CHALLENGE 14 ENTRIES by cassiemarie on: August 06, 2006 10:37:41 AM
I am taking a metals class this summer, and I am always trying to come up with ways of combining craft with fine art, so when I saw this challenge I thought that it would be a perfect opportunity to test my creative skills.  After all my trials and errors, I finally ended up with this set of four rings.  

 These rings were made by crocheting tiny nylon cord into strips, as you can see in the third picture, and then dipping them in wax.  Next, I invested the strips of crocheted nylon string into investment (which is very similar to plaster of Paris).  After the investment dries, you put it into a kiln for 3 hours at 1350 degrees Fahrenheit.  When the time is up, I melted my sterling silver, and then cast the metal into the investment where the nylon string had burnt out.  When that is done, I dissolved the investment in water, and sawed the metal into usable pieces to assemble into the rings.  When I was done assembling the rings, I placed them in Liver of sulfur to turn them black.  The finishing step was to buff away the liver of sulfur on the raised areas so that you could clearly see the definition of the crocheted stitches.  If you have any questions let me know!
