I was flashing my boss yarn p*rn today. He says I must be into the kinky stuff. I'm glad he plays along.

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Everything is great this week! I like all the bright fruit inspired ones. It's a nice antidote to the rain that's here.

I've been lurking her for a few months now, and refused to post any of my few, pathetic attempts at pinning on my friends turkish spindle. However, now I have a wheel and finally have something I like enough to show off.

Here is "swirl". It's hand dyed, cross breed wool, plied with white crochet cotton. There's matte grey sequins on the thread every 4 inches or so. There's hardly any of this, but I will find something to make with it if it kills me. Well almost.

And here is the roving that I dyed and is all predrafted ready to spin. I'm calling this one shallow waters, and plan to ply it with a aqua turquoise thread.

(I feel like I'm part of some club now. A friendly welcoming one, but a club no less.)

Is there such a thing as too much fabric or ribbon

everything is gorgeous this week, and those are gorgeous spindles  Laura22. Tumblebloom is fantastic.

I dyed a bit this week,

a silk cap

I don't really wear purple of pink, but i have been noticing that a lot of the yarn I buy, and the stuff that I dye seems to want to be those colours...

The merino spun up into this; 50g, 220m

on the fine side, sockish to DK.

The silk is stull being spun, and it is fun  Grin. I think I may have found my fav fiber...

I LOVE everyone's yarns. I can't say I have a favorite, as they are all so awesome. I have obsessed...well maybe not obsessed...yeah actually obsessed is pretty accurate over Fiber Fridays I've only posted one other time and it was fairly bland yarn. This week I ordered from Sheep Shed and she sent a little extra which was begging to be spun immediately. So I did...It's for a swap I'm in so Knit_Core if you're reading this ...stop it.  Grin Anyway here it is

I call it Rohan 'cause it looks like the colors of the horses I used to have as a kid and our swap is LOTR themed. It's spun on an ashford drop spindle and plied with pink cotton thread. No idea of the content other than wool. No idea of the yardage either...ha some spinner I am.

Here's a close up


Just trying to find me...

Here's my newest yarn.  Merino and SoySilk.  I've called it CandyRibbons.  18WPI, 2 ply, 250 yards.

Aw, lots of pretty yarn. I wish I had something to post but I have spent most of my days off work this week dyeing a buttload of fiber instead o_O Maybe next week...
