Well, technically I worked on this last week too but it is off the wheel now so I thought I post the finished product. About 150 yds of 100% Colonial Wool.

As usual, we are off to a great start on yarn porn for this week. Bixby, you are a busy spinner! Awsome stuff!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Fiber Friday!!

Only one skein this week, but since my Rhinebeck trip fell through, I'll be able to do some spinning/dyeing this weekend.  This skein is called Aunt Dorie, because it kind of reminds me of my Aunt Dorie.  Smiley

The lighter ply is tussah silk and the darker ply is wool, both dyed in the same dyebath.  The yarn is 227.5 yards and 5.75 ounces.

And I love Children and Snow!  It's simple, yet classy.  Smiley

Oh, Lufah, I love your Aunt Dorie!   Grin

I just have a couple o' postings for today... I recently FINALLY got into the spinning class that my LYS gives, after being on the waiting list since freakin' March!  So that means I've been learning how to process fleece, and haven't been at the wheel quite as much.   

This was the first time I've used my own rolags!  I finally have access to handcards, so I carded up sweet little dumplings of rolags and then spun them one after another.  110 yards, 2.5 oz.  Merino, superwash, bamboo, tussah silk, recycled sari silk, angora bunny fluff, and angelina sparkle.

Just a simple two-ply merino yarn.  126 yards/3.5 oz, bulky.

Yay.  Thinking about yarn makes me giddy! 
Bring on more Fiber Friday postings!   Cheesy

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.

I finally had some time to do a tiny bit of spinning.  I had a lumpy, bumpy single that I spun from a lumpy, bumpy batt.  I thought that since I didn't really like the fibre, it would be good for learning purposes.
So ta da, here is my first navajo plied yarn:

(my camera is terrible...)
I'm sure it would be SO much easier if the yarn were smooth....

Everyone's yarn looks great!  I wish I had more time for spinning Sad

wow, I haven't posted in forever!

Here is an armwarmer from a pair I knit from a scrap yarn that I spun a few weeks ago:

This is the yarn:
