1  Re: Fiber Friday! <3 3/27/09 in Spinning: Completed Projects by Laura22 on: March 27, 2009 06:35:10 AM
Great stuff so far this week Smiley  I only have one to share as I'm workin my way thru 8 oz of this fiber and I'm slow Wink 

The fiber is Louet Karaoke Playful and I'm spinning it thick and thin and plying it with wooly nylon thread for a boucle.  When it's all done, it should be enough for a nice sized shawl Smiley

The mannequin thinks it's yummy Wink

I made this shawl for my baby's room with Caron simply soft in solid and paints.  I used a 24" Ashford Rigid Heddle loom Smiley
Here it is on the rocking chair

My selvedges were wonky at first but they looked pretty good once I got the hang of things Smiley

I just knotted a fringe, I want to hemstitch my next project to see how that looks Smiley

I spun up some superwash this week Smiley

Here is a couple of ounces of hand dyed superwash that I bought on ebay:

And some red superwash special dyed from the Sheep Shed Studio.  It's for a shawl so one skein has beads, the other doesn't.

Wow, everything is gorgeous this week Smiley  I didn't spin much that is very interesting to look at.  These are all polypay and wensleydale blend two plys.  I kool aid dyed them after spinning.  They are all going to be part of a shawl which will either be hideously ugly or quirky and cute when it's finished Wink

Yay, made it in time to do Fiber Friday this week Smiley  I have been spinning like a crazy lady this week and it's been so fun!

I haven't calculated yardage on everything yet.  Sorry Smiley  
This one is wool/mohair from Sheep Shed (light blue), TX llama from Stonehill spinning (both brown shades) and a bit of Angelina.  The natural color is spun from batts of polypay and Wensleydale blended together.

It's a single that I intentionally spun thick and thin

This one is llama (same kind as above yarn), wool mohair from sheep shed (all colors) spun thick and thin.  Then I plied it with wooly nylon sewing thread to create a boucle style yarn.  I spun this one and the previous one to be self striping yarns.

This one is a Polypay and Wensleydale batt that I spun up and then kool aid dyed when it was done

Next up is a bit of core spun mohair.  I used mohair roving which I carded into fluff (not really clouds but closer than the roving) and then spun it onto a wooly nylon core thread.  It's not the most stable thing I've spun, but it was a fun experiment.

Then there is this merino tencel blend single from FatCatKnits roving that has been in my stash a while

this second pic is a bit truer to the actual colors of it, very soft and pastel

Wool mohair from sheep shed studio in a soft varigated dye.  I'm really into singles lately, can ya tell???

Thick and thin self striping single made from all kinds of colors, this one is mainly sheep shed wool mohair, but the dark purple is brown llama overdyed I think.

Thanks so much for looking if you made it this far Smiley  The rovings, unless otherwise credited, were dyed with acid dyes by me here at the house.  I've  had them sitting in my stash for a while since I took a spinning hiatus.  I am now only kool aid dyeing as my kiddos make me nervous with the stronger chemicals Smiley

7  Missed Friday so I'm sharing today :) in Spinning: Completed Projects by Laura22 on: February 21, 2009 11:04:57 AM
First thing I've spun in a while.  It's a superwash merino bamboo blend hand dyed by this etsy seller :  http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5368210

I am expecting another girl in July and wanted to spin something soft and washable to make her a shawl wrap.  Here is the result so far, not thru knitting but I did start already Smiley

TFL, this is the first time I've had my wheel out in ages and I really enjoyed it Smiley
