Lado, that fall-ish yarn is great.  Love the texture

Lufah, Red Planet Blue is fantastic, kind of superman-ish.  Love the huge skein!

ignorantamoeba---great job on the dyeing and spinning.

LizzieMcGuire---I think it is wonderful and that scarf turned out great.  Smiley

nicolassa---Violetta is fanstastic....great colors!

Here is my one contribution this week:

Heartthrob, 235 yards of BFL, sport to worsted weight, 4oz.  Roving was from Spunky Eclectic in her Burning Embers colorway.  I love this colorway, it is so nice.

I also dyed up two new rovings yesterday:

Twilight, 4oz of merino

Samhain, 4oz of domestic wool blend

I just got new colors of dye in so I have been playing around with them, need to get some more going!  Smiley

13  Finally finished "my so called scarf", what a fun knit! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mandalinn on: October 05, 2007 11:36:07 AM
I did this for my Grandmom for Christmas, I am really happy with how it came out.  I used only 1 1/2 balls since my Grandmother is very petite and it still is long.

My So Called Scarf
1 1/2 hanks of Manos del Uruguay in a long discontinued color
Size 11 needle
Followed pattern as is.
Took 2 weeks, but that is only because I have too much other stuff going on.

Thanks for looking!   Grin

15  Spooky & Autumn handspun yarn!!!!!! in Spinning: Completed Projects by mandalinn on: October 01, 2007 03:02:20 PM
I just got done with 2 new art yarns in time for Autumn and Halloween and wanted to share.  I am so happy with how they came out!

Both are made with fiber and add-ins from 7122390Traveling Rhinos's batt clubhttp://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=  Contains BFL, romney and domestic wools with angelina.

Spooky---98 yards plied with copper thread and ribbon and skull beads

Autumn Splendor---64 yards with ribbons, fabric and plastic flowers

I am finally getting this whole "art yarns" thing.  Smiley

I even have 2 more ounces of dyed Corriedale that go along with these ones too.  Going to try for laceweight/fingering with that on my new wheel.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

16  Can I pout please! My new wheel! in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by mandalinn on: October 01, 2007 02:53:02 PM
I have no luck with wheels that I order online at all.  When I ordered my Lendrum, the plying flyer broke.  Today my brand new Majacraft Rose was delivered and right out of the box I saw the issue immediately, no assembly or anything done.

Look at my poor new wheel.  SadSadSad

The Woolery is going to contact Majacraft and have a new wheel portion only shipped directly to me from New Zealand, but it will take a while.  Thankfully I am able to assemble it and use it, except for that outside ratio.

It is a gorgeous wheel and I know I will love it, once she is all fixed up and ready to go.  It treadles like the wind and is so quiet and easy on my legs!

17  Just a simple garter knit scarf, BUT.... in Knitting: Completed Projects by mandalinn on: September 28, 2007 10:02:28 AM
It is made out of my own handspun yarn.  This is my first knitted FO from my handspun and I cannot wait until the weather gets cool enough to wear it.  LOL!

Sea Treasure scarf---made from 100 yards of alpaca, merino, silk & glitz blend with recycled sari silk .  Roving was from Loop on Etsy, spun by me on my Lendrum ST. It is a short scarf, but here in FL I don't have much need for one for warmth, just an accent, so it will work great. 

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Everything looks great so far!

Betzi I love the armwarmers, too cool!

Grayling the colors in that romney are fantastic!

Vanilla both look great, I am partial to coopworth myself and will be buying a fleece or two someday.  Not the softest, but excellent to spin with and it just has such character in it.

Star the soysilk looks fantastic and so do the socks.  I am planning on spinning up my first sock yarns and am a bit nervous about it, LOL!

Here are my two contributions for this week!

Girl Gothic--100 yards of my first "art yarn".  Fiber is from HollyEQQ's Batty Babes Club, last month's batt: wool, mohair, angelina, romney, BFL and silk noils, spun on my Lendrum ST, worsted to super bulky with novelty add ins.  It is so soft & sparkly, photos do it no justice at all.

Sea Goddess--192 yards, worsted to bulky weight, 3oz.  Fiber is Falklands Wool, Fine Merino Top, Wool/Mohair, Purple and Green Sparkle fibers and Glitz from TerraBellaSpun on Etsy, spun on my Lendrum ST.  

I also have awesome news, my new wheel, a Majacraft Rose will be here on Monday!!!!!  I ordered it yesterday, how's that for quick shipping?  I am so excited.  Finally a DT for me, I love my Lendrum, but the ST was killing my hip because I only worked the one side, hopefully this will help it out a bit, along with the surgery sometime next year.  Smiley

I haven't posted on a FF in a while, so I have a bit to show.

Bijou---2oz, 170 yards superwash merino from ViralAnomaly on Etsy

Bijou 2---2oz, 280 yards, superwash merino from ViralAnomaly on Etsy.  This one is thinner.

Trembolina---4oz, 368 yards, bamboo from HollyEQQ


Sherbet---4oz, 270 yards, 2-ply, fresian & shetland from Stony Creek on Etsy.

Parakeet---2.5 oz, 110 yards, corridale X from an Ebay seller.

I think that is it.  

Everything here looks so fantastic.  I love the beaded one and Betzi, that swatch looks great I think.  That pattern is fantastic!
