1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday - January 9th, 2009 on: January 10, 2009 12:20:09 AM
Just wanted to clarify that I dyed skanksore myself - I spiral dyed each ounce separately and then spun a single from each ounce. Of course the spiral dyeing didn't really matter because it was blended so poorly that I ended up just taking fistfuls and redrafting...

I am just loving this Fiber Friday thread, and have been eyeballing my neighbor's pekinese dog for fiber like crazy  Grin

ignorantamoeba, wow! Your yarns are just gorgeous!

My crop from these past two weeks:
1. Skanksore, named for how much of a pain it was to spin this poorly blended merino tencel. Still, it came out mighty purty so I'm ok with it, 2oz, 114m.

2. Perfect Day, from a gorgeous batt (A Lovely Day Out) from laminathegreat. Loved the single so much I couldn't bear to ply it so I left it as is. 2 oz, 55m.

3. Angel Poop, spun from bargain bin industrial-dyed lambswool. It was languishing in the back of a yarn store, and I do not regret taking it home with me even though I wasn't sure I would be able to do anything with it. 94g, 70m. I think this is going to be my etsy shop's first handspun.

I've been a big fan of Fiber Friday for ages, and now I'm finally making my debut appearance. My first ever yarn, spun from undyed domestic wool on a drop spindle from laminathegreat (I got her awesome "learn to spin" kit), I am not even bothering to show. Suffice it to say that it is called "Pigeon Droppings".
This next one I started at the Israspin workshop held by Ravelry's lovely MasadaSpindle. It refuses to have a good picture taken (as does the next one) but it's not that attractive anyway so whatever:
"n00b-berry" - undyed Aussie merino, kool-aid dyed NZ merino and a bit of the domestic wool from before, about 84g, 58m

"Noro Who?" - scrap fiber, scrap yarn, and some hubris carded by me on dog flickers, 48g, 16m

as yet unnamed, may well be plied with something else, spun from silk hankies received in a swap (so much fun to spin ZOMG), 17g, 40m

And to complete the learning curve so far, "Morning Star", from domestic wool roving from laminathegreat ("Morgan" colorway), 4oz, 72m. I was surprised with how soft it is.

Next week's challenge will be to make some even singles. In any case, I've caught the spinning bug hard.

Happy Fiber Friday!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Gimme some handspun and watch me fly! on: February 18, 2008 10:17:58 PM
A couple months back, I got the most awesome skein of handspun from inle_rah in a swap.
I promised myself I would use it strictly to knit stuff for myself, because I usually end up neglected
So far, I've knit an Urchin and a pair of Fetching from it, and I am wondering what to do with the little bit that's left over.
So here they are:

This is the original skein, by the way. Every inch of this yarn is just riveting.
5  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Monty Python Swap R2 (SIGNUPS CLOSED; SENDOUTS EXTENDED - by Dec. 10!) on: February 13, 2008 07:02:17 AM
Ok, everybody. All apologies for not being around lately.

I know it's not any kind of excuse, but I've been going through a bit of postpartum depression, and it had been getting very bad very quickly for a while. Having the weekly crisis which is standard issue with two small kids hasn't been making it easier either.

Most of all, my apologies to knittychick. For the long wait and the potential burn of being flaked on by the organizer... When I started running late, I kept coming up with a growing list of things to add on as bonuses for being late, and it got to the point where there was no chance of me ever finishing the swap.
So I downscaled back to the original intended amount of items, and now am just waiting to get to the post office to get a box and mail the bugger. Hopefully, over time, I will accumulate a few additional items and send you a little bonus package, but for the time being, I ought to be pleased with my present loot. As was to be expected, we're having a bit of cold weather this week and Yiftah has an ear infection, so I might not be getting out when the PO is open until Sunday, but it's coming and I hope your patience will be duly rewarded.

Thanks all, and TwilightDancer I will be updating your feedback later in the day.

I'm not going to say that I'm going to make this myself, but I am definitely going to make my Quilting Queen MIL make this!

Megan is sooooooooo cute, congratulations to you both for her birthday!!!

Awesome awesome stuff, ladies.

Please put your hands together in prayer that I will finally finish up everything this weekend.

My inability to get anything done around here has become so ridiculous that I am half-expecting an undead Graham Chapman to come and cancel me for being too silly.

At least the other stuff so far has been just fabulous, I really love all of it, and covet it badly!
