Oooohhh, that's so pretty!  I love those colors!  And it looks so soft!

Here're my spindle-spun:

79 yards - superwash merino dyed by Crown Mountain Farms with a little bright fuchsia Corriedale thrown in.

72 yards Corriedale pencil rovings dyed by Crown Mountain Farms. 

I posted some pics under the Swatch thread yesterday, so I won't repeat them here.

Can't wait to see everyone else's yarn!  Happy Friday!

I love the last one you posted, flwrhead, and that first skein by Laamissa is so fallish, I love it!

Here is what I have been working on:

my scraps carded togther, plied on black thread with some little coils

kind of a mustard color, I was scared b/c the roving looks like puke, but I really like this yarn!

And this isn't yarn, but can I boast a little?  Its my page in Spin to Knit, a new book by Shannon Okey.  Exciting!!

I spun two different handspun sets this week...

"Cryptosporidium" - one skein of coil-y handspun & one skein handdyed commercial wool in an unnatural shade of aqua.

"Olivia" - one skein olive & pink handspun plyed with pink thread & vintage pink sequins, and one skein of recycled handdyed 55% angora/45% nylon yarn that was unraveled from a sweater, re-spun, and plied to make a light worsted weight yarn.

I ALSO spun:

A giant pile of bulky singles for a shrug I'm knitting.

My favorite, Tainted Love. Singles spun from a deconstructed Brown Sheep mill end roving that I handpainted. Too bad I sold it!

This isn't even all the yarn I spun this week. AND, it was all spun on a drop spindle.

Holly, those are just beautiful - I love those pale greens!  I am definitely going to have to get some hand carders.  Congrats on being published!  Woo hoo!

Feral - you're making coils on a drop spindle!  Is that really hard to do?  Pretty color combos.  I'm waiting on my Brown Sheep mill ends delivery, was planning to spend the weekend dyeing but it hasn't arrived yet!  Boo.  You must be really fast, it takes me 2-3 hours to go through 2-3 oz. of roving.

I'm so impressed with everyone's spinning! congrats Holly, I will definitely keep an eye out for the book--I've already heard great things about it. And feralfeminine--you are an inspiration to drop spindlers like myself. Nothing to post this week but I'm going to the NH Wool Tour this weekend and I have Monday off so I should have something for next Friday!
