Its Fibre Friday already!  Well, it is in the UK anyway...  Wink

Here's my only offering this week, it's a some space-dyed Merino in all kinds of weird colours (pink, yellow, brown and natural!).  Its plied with more of the same.

Can't wait to see what you've all been busy with!   Grin

WOW! I was about to say that I liked the bright orange most, but on closer inspection, I have to say that I love all the colours most! Cheesy Great job Smiley

*Edit: On even CLOSER inspection, I noticed that you didn't even USE orange, duh! Roll Eyes*

I'm quite jealous of all you folks who can make your own yarn.  All I can say to you is WOW -- let's knit!  Beautiful mix!

Looks great, skeffto - love how bright and squishy it looks.

Here is what I did this week:

"The Pier" - wool

"Lady Pirate" - wool

Have a great Friday!

Grayling40, I love Lady Pirate. It would make an awesome pair of mittens. Did you use B&W mill ends?

I spun some manly yarn this week for DH's hat.  Its made with wool and alpaca in grays, browns, greens and black.  I LOVE the way it spun up - and so does DH.  Sorry I have yet to take an action shot even though he has not taken the hat off in days.

I spun this on my new wheel a Majacraft littlegem 2 and I'm so in love with the way this wheel spins. I'm not ready to give up my louet jut yet but I'm getting there.

Weddy, join us anyway!  Your yarn DEFINITELY doesn't have to be perfect to be posted on Fiber Friday.  The point of this board is just to celebrate all things fiber, and I bet that includes your yarn!   Grin

My favorites so far are the "Ladies"...Lady of the Lake and Lady Pirate!

Here's my contribution for the week...I've been in a blue mood lately.  But not in a depressed sort of way.   Just in a color sort of way.   Wink

Deep Sea Diving.  Superwash merino, navajo-plied.  151 yards, 4.0 oz.

And the much more muted Robin's Nest.  Merino wool, heavy worsted/bulky.  217 yards, 3.8 oz.

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