So after 10 amazing days in Italy I was itching to come back to my spinning wheel. I picked up some silk hankies in Florence in the cute little yarn shop and then had to beg customs to let me take them through. I'm working now and its my first time spinning silk. But here's 2 skiens that I finished as soon as I got home.
Superwash merino from sheep's shed 15 wpi about 400 yards navajo plied

I'm thinking of calling it "Portofino Corridor" because the colors remind me of this picture my bf took

Happy Fiber Friday the 13th! I've got some dramatic yarn in honor. But first, great yarns everyone!

Star217 - Pretty color! That name seems right. I love when there is a picture of an inspiration with the finished yarn - great!

Wool, alpaca, mill ends, sari silk:

Black and white wool, glitter crochet cotton, dominoes and buttons:

Black wool, holographic thread, seashells:

I love the picture of the dandelion singles & roving!

Strawberry Patch - merino plied with thread, with lots of squiggly green tendrils and big soft coils. The tendrils are kind of hard to see in the pictures - if you click on the second picture, it will take you to the flickr page, where I made notes showing where some of them are.


Nessa - merino singles, with lots of different colors! Dark brown, orange, seafoam, olive green, pink, burgundy, lavender, navy blue, deep blue, sky blue, teal blue.


Ephemera - silky-soft bamboo singles in shades of fawn, with bits of pink and green peeking through. And a random bit of red thread (I have lots of those around here, since I do a lot of sewing as well).

I love Portifino Corridor! The colours are very similar to the picture.
                          Here's my weekly offering:
     Unified is an s twist spun single of camel, quiviut, buffalo, alpaca and wool. I absolutely love this skein it blended together so much better than I had expected.

feralfeminine, I love ephemera!  The colours are so peaceful.

I've got a few photos to share - they're not yarn, but made with my handspun.

This is Bun-Bun fully clothed.  The clothes are all hand spun (dress is wool, slik, and some nylon, the jacket is Shetland, and the bonnet, which you can't really see is green wool/mohair/angora plied with yellow silk)

And here she is in just the dress (as it's such a nice day today)

And a shot of her lovely tail! (And part of my collection of Spin-Offs).  I got the pattern from FuzzyMitten on etsy, along with a bunch of other patterns for other animals. The bonnet pattern I made up, and the dress came from the Siamese Kitten pattern.

And some roving I made using the Knitty tutorial this week.  They're made up of bits of everything, and are about an ounce each.  Actually, Bun-Bun's dress is made out of one of these rovings.
