Bixby your tulips are lovely, I see you've become addicted to spinning laceweight.

Sarahbird I love those colors.

Unable to leave good enough alone!

I'm seriously coveting all the gorgeous greens...that's my most recent color obsession.

Aliastriona: (applause again) That's great for a first try! I don't know what's happened to me lately, but I've been liking pink...I used to hate it!
And WTG on the first spun alias, it looks awesome!!
Yay, thanks! Grin

Kazkitty - I love GloStick so much!  So very very much!

Bixby - Gorgeous colors, and the picture of Mermaids makes me want to go try lace weight.

Lubee - Zombie is awesome.  The charms on it really make it.

I have to get me a high speed bobbin for my Louet (It's really difficult to spin thin with the regular bobbins).

Hi everyone! Happy fiber Friday! Yay! I didn't want to double post yarn pictures on Craftster so here is a group shot of what I spun this week. Detailed pics are in the Tour de Fleece thread. Yes, now that it's over I won't have this problem again for a while.  Wink

I love this week's yarns - I can't even list them all but I love them!  Smiley

Ok so I got some fabulous roving in the mail today and I just had to spin it the moment I got home. It's 2 in the morning here but I'm posting anyways! :3

I call it Truly Scrumptious (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang reference btw) Cheesy

The colors are way wonky on this, my room has a weird yellow tinge to it. But they're a lot brighter and delicious looking.

Since I'm a new spinner I would really appreciate critque and comments!

Everything looks great!  Knitwit, your amazing as usual.  Lubee, I LOVE zombie.  Its so awesome!

These are mine, my first two wheel spun skeins.

Unnamed.  1.8 ounces of worsted/bulky two ply.  The rainbow strand is a combo of BFL and then hand dyed mill ends, and the brown is an unknown long staple animal fiber.  I spun this in a mad two hour session starting about five minutes after I got my wheel together.

Blue Lagoon.  I had this fiber in my etsy, but I just couldn't take it and pulled it out.  Just shy of four ounces of hand dyed mill ends, about a worsted/bulky weight.  The colors are pretty true to life.
