100bean, I love your yarn!  I think pastels always look wonderful spun up.  When I saw the pic of madelinetosh's roving, it looked like a pot of Yukon Gold mashed potatoes.  Mmm, potatoes... Smiley  And I dyed the June Carter roving - it's one of the colorways that my partner and I dye when we dye yarn, and I really wanted to see what would happen to it if I dyed roving and spun and plied it.  It's a ton of fun to knit with, because the colors keep changing.  Which is good for me, since I have a tiny short attention span.  Smiley

I'm loving all the bright colors and the Sparkly White fibre, Misshawklet, it looks like cotton candy.

This board is really inspiring for those of us at the starting line waiting to get our feet wet!

oh yay! I finally am remembering to post for Fiber Friday!
Here are two skeins I've done recently for gifts....

this one is called frosted sycamore. it is handblended merino, angora and alpaca fibers, 2plies of the handspun + a ply of iridescent.

and this one is called Sherbet.  It's handdyed and handspun merino Smiley

Here's a closeup because I love it so much:

Wow!  this week's fibers are so prety!  I haven't posted on a fiber friday for a couple weeks, so I am glad to be back in the swing this week

Wow!  Everything is so pretty!  I (too) attempted to spin a thicker single to be used as a single this week.  I don't know why I have such a tough time spinning thicker (on purpose and consistently!)

My first attempt ended up being close to a sport weight/dk weight with a little bit of thicker spots.
2oz Fleece Artist Merino Sliver picked up on a whim at the LYS.  approx. 240 yards

The second attempt was a bit more consistent and a bit thicker.  This was actually "commissioned" by a friend as a gift for her MIL.  I want to keep it for myself however. 
This is the first 4 oz (of 8 oz) Blue Faced Leicester hand dyed with Navy & Olive Dylon dyes.  (It's actually a deeper navy and not so yellow in the greens.)  approx. 390 yards

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

The colours are all so beautiful this week- I love the strong colours!

The only spinning I did this week was this skein. The natural is Suri Alpaca spun from the lock, and the pink/purple colour was commercially dyed corriedale roving. I'm calling it "Burr" in honour of all of the cursed things I picked out of the alpaca  Wink.

About 75g, 120m.
