You guys seriously blow me away every week! some serious yarn porn here  Wink
I especially like City Lights.

I have 2 to show this week. First up is "Patchwork", 133 yds. hand dyed falkland:

This next one is "Blobula". I, too, was a lucky recipient of Intertwined. I am so enamored of this book, which explains the pluckyfluff inspiration of this one. I took scrap blobs and spun them in, anchoring them with a metallic thread:

Various wool and sparkle scraps on a thick and thin undyed merino base.

Photograph v. 1 and 2 are both really pretty.

I've been spinning a lot, in anticipation of craft fair that I will have a booth at in 2 weeks.

This is Firestorm, falkland plied with metallic purple thread

This one doesn't have a name, but it is undyed mystery wool plied with thread and pom poms

I carded a whole bunch of leftover wool from other spinning projects and spun this- plied with metallic green thread. I named it Josie.

I plied a couple of leftover yarns I had left on some bobbins with a black commercial novelty yarn and gold thread. This one is also nameless.

This was spun from batts that carded using leftover wool, silk, and mohair. Plied with red sewing thread and orange beads, it also has coils throughout (can't really see them in this pic).

This is a superslub yarn- I used mill ends that I got from Sheep Shed
