Everything looks so great! My first skein is about halfway done on the bobbin; I can't work on it until after the crazy new puppy goes to bed and I don't have to worry about her chewing on the wheel.  A wheel with puppy teeth marks would NOT make me a happy camper. 

Check out my hand-dyed fiber!

wow more pretty yarn! I'm also proud to be on the team  Smiley That spunky beaded  bfl is to die for. I spun more of the rainbow braid today. I've done 8 oz of it between today and yesterday... yay!

That silk wins some sort of extra points. Seriously!

I am glad I saw this thread it has inspired me to go go go.

yesterday I combed out some corridale greasy fleece and the alpaca that I dyed then I started spinning the alpaca, today I went to spinning group and my 12 yr old son helped me spin LOL, he watched the spindle and kept it going in the right direction, got quiet a bit done with his help.
will post photos later when I have done more.

OK, well I'm in Cheesy But I need to find some batteries to put in my camera in order to take pictures! >_< lol. I officially started today but I got a skein of 110 yards done yesterday and last night I set the twist. It is a natural white Kid Mohair and Baby lamb Coreidale locks with angelina that I blended with my hand carders and then spun, single ply.

Now I am working on the first single of a 2 ply out of a lb. of Masham wool top in a nice charcoal grey.

I just have one delima...only about 2 more ounces besides the rest of my Masham...I NEED FIBER, and the only fiber store NEAR me...meaning like 2 hours away is closed this month! >_< IF you have any donations lmao please message me!

THis is so fun to participate in and I love all your lovely handspun goodness!

I USED TO BE 007lucious_lips!!!!! I MOVED!

Here's the first ounce of my Tussah silk/Cashmere single. So now I just have to spin the other ounce and ply the two together.

TheBon - Beautiful color combo!  Plus, it's shiny.  I've got a thing about shiny.

Working on a green superwash single now.  Once plied it should be sock weight.  Bad experiences with center-pull balls, though.  I think I will wait for my ball-winder to come.
Anyone else can't seem to get the hang of center-pull balls?

I had to wipe the drool off the keyboard after looking at all these.  So very pretty!
