Nice to have you back, Caedara!

So many beautiful yarns this week!

Marlana, that is such a lovely skein.

Astryd, I love Sonoma sky, and as I dyed some roving last time in very similar colours I am hoping mine will turn out as well as this one!

Here are some new ones from me:

Candy, hand dyed Merino:

Arctic blue on the rocks:

I have spun so many more, but I cannot keep up with setting the twist, my least favourite part of spinning...

Oh, this is pretty yarn!
I am at the moment in the UK, but I do have a picture of one yarn I finished this week - daffodils:

Of course there were quite a few more, after all I am an addict.... Cheesy

Have a great Friday!

Hello again, and I'm not even too late for the party!

Flowers and lemons, it's lovely to see the first few yards of handspun - and the Turkish spindle was a great choice. Smiley The texture looks really great knitted up as well.

Grayling, those yarns are gorgeous, I wonder how Vintage would knit up?

Wow, Jazzturtle, you have been reeeally prolific!

Anyway, it's been truly ages since I last posted in fibre friday, so I have a bit of catching up to do! To keep it simple I am just going to post a few of my latest yarns.

Koi, handspun and hand dyed NZ lamb, navajo plied:

Sage in bloom, hand dyed 2ply:

Lily butterfly, hand dyed 50% Merino/50% silk:

Riding on the waves, hand dyed Merino plied with thread:

Plant dyed rainbow yarn:

Plus I was able to spin quite a few new art yarns, which I will hopefully post next week...
Thanks to everyone for sharing!

Thank you fyberduck!
I received this beautiful superwash sock yarn:

With it came some pretty needles in a size I really did not have - and my first set of coloured ones, too!

I just have to finish a pair of X-mas gift socks, and then I'm ready for some handspun beauty... Cheesy

Beautiful yarns so far!

In another effort to use up all my fibre before leaving the country, I got quite productive this week. I haven't got pics of everything yet, but here is what I have:

Colonel Mustard and Ms Sage, pure Targhee I got through the magic roving ball swap (Thanks maiziemama!)

Not a cloud in the sky, almost the last bits of my lovely merino/silk blend! Over 300m and 100g. I will keep this and knit some sort of a small shawl out of it...

And this one is called Rosewood, dyed by my boyfriend Smiley
First it seemed like a bit of an accident with wayyy to much dye, but once dried it looked really nice and a little different - so I had to keep this as well, lol. Cheesy

No pictures so far of a fancy merino/silk yarn withsequins in a really great colour. I also just finished a blue yarn with shells spun into - took me aaaages to complete!

Now I am getting really low on fibre, just some merino/silk for myself, all the material for a 'chicks and eggs' eastery yarn, some yellow/orange tussah silk, lots of leftovers in different colours (scrap yarn...?) and last but not least lots of mohair curls.

Very nice, I especially like the yellow/orange one!
I've been pretty busy recently and have managed to set some twists and take some pictures!

Probably my favourite: Frog prince art yarn with ric rac, sequins, golden fabric (the golden ball!), mohair locks and coils (sadly you can't see most of it on this picture):

Then we got 'English rose', 2ply merino and sooo soft!

And a luxury blend of 70%Merino, 30% Silk (my absolute favourite to spin!):

And some pure tussah silk, called purple steel:

On other news I am coming very close to being accepted for a job in Germany, which means I will be moving there in less than a month!! *shockhorror*

In a preparation to packing I have dyed every single piece of undyed fibre I had in the house the other day, so expect some more spinning next Friday!

Pretty yarns so far! That sockyarn must have taken a while, but so worth it! And alpacas are just the cutest! We got a reasonably local alpaca farm and I just love getting my fibre there... Cheesy

Well, I haven't participated in a fibre friday in many weeks, so here are just some of my more recent yarns:

A little bit of pure tussah silk, hand dyed:

A pure merino yarn I called 'old penny':

I've almost finished a really fun art yarn with bee buttons and little beehive coils (my first try at coils), but the picture will hopefully be ready next week.

Another hand dyed 2 ply merino yarn, 'blue lagoon':

And here is one in nice and sunny colours, I called it 'Banana daiquiri':

Beautiful stuff, but I just received the perfect parcel from Maiziemama!
I really think you are a mindreader, maizie. Smiley

This is the first thing I saw when I opened the box, yummy smelling fresh lavender and some chococolate - great start! Cheesy

..and here is the full haul, all wrapped in a very sweet piece of light blue flowery fabric!

http://www.flickr.com/photos/43307699@N00/746930791/ (I added lots of notes here)
The main fibre is pure Tussah silk in a wonderful colourway called 'antique'.
There is also some Targhee for me to try out as well as some absolutely beautiful handspun yarn!
My parcel was mostly kept in purples, which is one of my favourite colours, yay! To keep with the theme there is some lavender oil, some packets of seeds and also some lovely almond and poppy soap - can't wait to try it out!

Something really great are the personalised labels - I've seriously been looking for labels for such a long time, and now I got my very own ones!!
Bead-wise we got some leaves, a birdie and a huge bag of shells. Funnily enough I was looking for those as well! Oh, and there are some amazing old pearly and MOP buttons - I absolutely adore those!

But this is my absolute favourite, the gorgeous orifice hook, handmade by Maiziemama:

There was of course also chocolate, but somehow it didn't make the picture, ooooops... Cheesy

Thank you soo much for everything, Maziemama, it's all just perfect!!

I'm past the divide, and there were no problems. Which part are you curious about?

Quite a bit past the divide actually, I just finished the back and am now working on the front. And I am still afraid of the sleeves - there's two of them!

Oh wow, great yarn overload already!
Isamax, I love those curly yarns you're spinning, and batts are so much fun to spin, I agree!

Star, that skein is divine, and so thin! It looks beautiful.

Feral, that bamboo is simply stunning!

Cassie, i love how producitve you are, and wonderful skeins as well, should be interesting how the noro-esque one would knit up...

I haven't posted anything last week, but this week I finally set the twist on them (I hat that part and always amass a few before I do it), so here are a few new ones, I've been in an art yarn mood:

Leaves, plied and finished

True love, from a merino/mohair mix with seed beads, heart shaped buttons and handmade fimo beads from etsy, a 2ply yarn:

and Bride to be, a small skein of hand dyed merino with different colours of tulle:

I also dyed some more merino roving:
...and just finished spinning a thin 2ply of the one on the left, 'old penny', but need to set the twist yet (should take me a couple of weeks, lol)...

I also just ordered a big pack of different fibres, including some bamboo roving which should be fun - shame I can't use my acid dyes. If I wouldn't have just stocked up on a few more colours I would have probably gotten myself some procion mx dyes, but I can't really justify it for a few hundred grams....
