Friday evening here in Australia. I have not posted anything in Fibre friday for ages - these are from the last two weeks. The yellow one is superwash, the rest are merino.

3  Fluffy Goodness in Spinning: Completed Projects by thegoodsheep on: November 20, 2007 08:21:54 PM
I am kind of obsessed with plying with thread at the moment (well plying with merino laceweight). I love the pouffyness of these yarns so I don't see myself breaking free anytime soon.

These are two of my fluffy skeins (the other is drying and I have no patience today) - I really love the red and purple one.

And this is the lone two ply of late - spun from my massive dyeing weekend awhile ago.

4  Raspberry Rainforest handspun in Spinning: Completed Projects by thegoodsheep on: October 22, 2007 04:07:35 PM
I am strangely happy with this yarn (I spent a decent amount of time waving it at my non-interested flatmate going 'look isn't it so soft and pretty' and getting no response).

Spun from soft fluffy merino it is really soft and I just love it. The colours are a bit deeper and richer in person - the camera would not cooperate.

5  Lots of yarn (pic heavy) in Spinning: Completed Projects by thegoodsheep on: August 27, 2007 03:48:17 PM
After several drama and stress filled weeks I finally have some finished objects to show. These darling yarns were my stress/sanity spinning. I am very very happy with the boucle esque one, I was having real issues plying with thread (having been inspired by all the great yarns you guys posted) so I ended up plying with a finer single and voila - success. I don't know what I think of the blue and orange one in the first photo - it was a slight dyeing oopsy and I don't really like orange.

6  Mid Week Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by thegoodsheep on: June 11, 2007 10:16:12 PM
Due to the massive storm this weekend I had three very productive spinning days (who wants to go out in the worst storm since '72). These are the fruit of my labours.
Last week I set myself a challenge - to try and spin something finer than bulky - this one is about a 8ply weight.

These three are from left to right
Roving dyed by someone else I am quite happy about, one I really hated in roving form but actually quite like the colours now it is spun up and some nice soothing blue and green - i also have the same blue and green in a single.

This one I love, I was a dyed with the left overs from a couple of other rovings and I was a bit uncertain but I just love it spun up.

And lastly (but not least) Mr Colourful

7  First singles from my new jumbo flyer in Spinning: Completed Projects by thegoodsheep on: May 06, 2007 06:51:31 PM
I bought my wheel a little present on the weekend - a Jumbo Flyer, so I spent a decent chunk of the weekend spinning (housework - what housework!). It is the first spinning I have done in a couple of weeks and being the impatient person I am I just couldn't wait to share. I was seriously impressed, intimidated and inspired by Fiber Friday this week - so many talented people and fabulous wool.
