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  Long weekend = Lots of dyeing in Dyeing: Completed Projects by thegoodsheep on: October 02, 2007 03:09:09 PM
Hi all,
We have just had a long weekend with glorious weather so I decided to do some dyeing. Some of the roving below (mainly the shorter plaits) were handpainted, the rest was dyed on the stovetop
These are my before and during stove top dyeing pictures. I find the second one interesting as the three colours were added in thirds (like the others were added in sixths) and the pink seemed to take over and the green almost disappeared.

And these are my lovely merino roving plaits, all dry and fluffy waiting to be spun

I should probably add they are dyed with Landscapes Dyes

6  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.

7  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

8  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.
