1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Call for experienced spinners who would like to help with Learn to Spin 2010 on: August 09, 2010 01:50:27 PM
I think I can fill in #4 easily enough. Is there a deadline for this? (Just say yes and give me a reasonable finish date, I'm horrible without a deadline  Tongue) I tend to use the soaking method whether than steaming but I can totally look up details on steaming and add links for info as necessary. Also, do I just email this to you when I'm done. Alright... I think I'm done with the questions now.  Grin

Alright, for what ever reason I forget how to use the PM system. Probably cause I haven't been here in a while but I saw this on Facebook and would like to help. Let me know what you would like me to do!

This is actually a yarn I have been working on for quite some time. Technically its only half done but since I officially resigned myself to realizing it won't be what I want it to be and I don't have forever to do it, I quit it. But I had two plies of what would have been a cabled yarn so I put them together.

I'm thinking about finding a nice lacy pattern since I have no intention of counting yardage on this thing!

I did make some yarns I wanted to post and I forgot until now. I made these 2 ply corriedale yarns from the Faded Forestry colorway I made.

Wow, Everything looks so good and squishable!  Grin I totally love the Medusa Supercoils, very nice.

I have a couple this week. Trying to spin a little everyday this month so here are two small yarns from the 1st and 2nd.

This one is a corespun yarn with a technicolor batt I made. Its about 34 yards but this is the best picture I have so far.

This yarn was already made but I plied it  with a dark green embroidery thread to get approx 49 yards then the thread ran out.  Shocked

I used the leftovers and made a small two ply - extra bulky!

That's it for me. I hope to have a larger selection to share next week!

whisp3rd - I love the supercoil yarn!

Its been awhile since I have had something to contribute.... or been able to remember to contribute.

This is a little different for me but I am very proud of it. Its rambouillet with mohair locks plied in between.  Grin

I sure did nicolassa. I will never buy it again.  Cry
I loved the colors and the spinning was pretty easy but it took all of 2 minutes in lukewarm water to change from clear to orange. I took it out so it wouldn't muddy the other colors. One of the ladies in my spinning group suggested synthrapol (sp?) but I figure if I am buying from a internationally recognized spinning company the least they can do is make the fibers colorfast. I know when I dye things for sale I do and would expect the same. I can deal with a little tint but this was scary. Maybe I expect to much, I dunno. Seriously though, my husband even said it looked like kool-aid water. Grin

I finished a yarn early this week or maybe it was late last week... I don't really remember since it was the end of the business year at my job. (talk about stressful!)

 I received the fiber from pmpknpunk during a fiber of the month swap. Here is the batt and the spun yarn. I haven't set the twist on this yet.

I finally got back to this thread after a long day. (Had to sneak a peek in at work  Wink )
Isamax I love the Christmas-y colored yarn and cloudlover I adore the Summer Squash batts before and after the spinning.

I don't always post for Fiber Friday but this past week I finished spinning some roving from JulieSpins on Etsy and made a finished object. (My first finished object with my handspun so "Yay" on multiple accounts.)

Here is a picture of in progress and of the completed project.

I was aiming for a hat for myself but since I was just knitting and not following a pattern of any type so it turned out too small.  Sad  Good thing I there's a kid hanging around to wear it I suppose.  Grin
