Everything is so awesome here.  I love Stormy Weather, GloStick, the green one from Lado and the pink from Nifty.

Here is my one lonely little contribution this week.

Crayons in the Snow--it is 85% superwash merino 15% sari silk, 230 yards, 2-ply, 12-14 wpi.  I think it came out nicely and looks pretty cool.  Wink

I just got a ton of new rovings from HollyEQQ, including 2 bamboos, so I need to get cracking.  LOL!

28  New dyed fiber!!! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by mandalinn on: April 07, 2007 07:23:36 AM
I went on a dyeing binge yesterday, since I got 12 lbs of wool in the mail and 2 lbs of fiber the day before. 

Here is what I came up with!

Peeps, 4 oz of Austrailian merino handdyed

Spring Fling, 4 oz of Romney wool handdyed

Ocean Depths, 4 oz of Falkland wool, handdyed

Spring Fling Revisited, 4 oz of merino/tencel blend

All together in their fibery goodness!

I also tried my hand at dyeing silk hankies for the first time.

I can't wait to spin all of these, they are so fun.  Thanks for looking!

Oh my, everything is so gorgeous!  I especially like Pistachio and Suzanne!!

Here is my one contribution for this week.  It is Coral Reef, 4 oz, 152 yards of superwash merino that I handdyed and then spun & plied.  I am very happy with this one and will be making some wristwarmers from it I think.
