Yay Fiber Friday! Even though I was sick as a dog I still spun up some goodies from my new wheel! An Ashford Kiwi! Here we go:

The Muppets Band! - A fantastic mix of Kermit green, Gonzo Blue, ANIMAL!!! Pink, Fozzie Orange, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew yellow-green, plied with with Ms. Piggy Pink thread! Spun from wool mill ends. Approximately 85 yards.

The colors are kind of stale in this pic. Was storming all day.

Some random handspun! The back one is spun from roving I purchase from CJKopecCreations.etsy.com and the front one was spun from a surprise crazy batt from Moustacheridesyarn :]

Here is my favourite by far! I call it Clouds in my Coffee on a Winter Morning.

Yay :3

yaaay Friday!
whisp3rd.. I LOVE your muppets yarn!!  and clouds and coffee!!  I want to eat it!!!
Here are a few I've made over the past few days.. I'm still figuring out how to use my  new wheel.  yes.. I did say my new wheel.  My mom told me that I could take the Clemes and Clemes home with me!!!! Aaahhh!!!! Sadly the drum carder does not fit in my suitcase... but... she said she will mail it to me.  Did I mention my mom is AWESOME?
Anyhow.. on to the yarn!!
I call this one stained glass... it's about 80 yards.  I turned it into a pair of fetching for me mum for being such an awesome lady Wink
This one is called Candied Jellyfish... about 75 yards.  It was my first time using wiltons dyes.  It turned out much more pastel than I wanted... but I like it...
Last but not least is Man Tweed.  Heh... I wanted to make a nice manly yarn so  could make some hand mitts for my boyfriend... He's pretty drab colorwise, so I made this black.. but with specks of white and red... to make it tweedy.  It's about 175 yards.
i have to apologize for my pictures.. my parents have a horrible camera.. and.. i'm in Alaska and there is seriously no daylight.. so.. flash photography for all!
happy fiber friday everyone :-D

I love how the second picture of stained glass is sitting next to the window... like it's looking out the window wanting to go outside and play!

wow your Clouds in Coffee on Winter Morning yarn is just beautiful. It looks like something you would have lie around for decoration - at least I would. Love it. A shame it's not in the stores  Wink

The Mitten Project is a year of mittens! Each week a new mitten and you get to choose which ones should be knit. In the end three pairs will be given away to you readers.

I love the muppets and stained glass yarns.  So pretty.

I have two yarns this week.  The first was a Christmas present for a friend.  I call it Low Tide.

It's about 160 yards of an Alpaca/Tencel blend, dyed by me, and plied with some fuzzy white thread.

And then there's this crazy multicolor skein that I did for a swap.

I can't remember the yardage on this one, but it was about 6.5 oz of merino, worsted, 2 ply.

Oooh! I like the clouds in my coffee, stained glass (that pic of it by the window is excellent - like itscute said, it looks like it's staring longingly outside!), and inle_rah's multicolor skein.

I got barely any spinning done this week thanks to the holidays, but I just took pictures of what I did get finished:

Bonny - shiny-soft bamboo in shades of brown, yellow, pink, orange, charteuse, and I think a few glimpses of blue.

Foxy - Rich red & brown chemical-free falkland wool, plus a few handfuls of soft soft white angora bunny fluff.

Unmentionable - Inspired by vintage underthings! Wool, soysilk, bamboo, angora bunny fluff, and ecospun, plied with invisible thread and pearly buttons.

Seascape - Chemical- free falkland wool + bits of shiny lime green bamboo. I added in some pinches of pink and orange wool for contrast - I love the colors in this one!

Happy fiber friday!

Thanks to the brave brave boy (he went into a YARN store! full of WOMEN! by himSELF)(haha) I have something to show for Fiber Friday!!  (seriously, I can't believe he thought of this and went to buy it on his own!!!)

On the wheel (in dim lighting)

It's approximately 247 yards/225 meters, 100 grams.  Superwash Merino from Spinknit Yarns & Fibers.  The colourway is:  "Bob"

The roving was handpainted in oranges and reds with black, blue and browns thrown and a good portion of whitespace.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Waiting anxiously for it to dry after setting the twist...  new mittens!!

**Update:  I finished the mittens.  Posted on the Knitting board here

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

My favorite yarn so far is subloke's Bob! It's pretty drab outside this time of year in Alaska and I love that shot of color.
I spun this one for the photo spin-along It's 86 yards.

This one is my favorite. Funfetti is 86 yards of merino plied with purple and blue silk. It's soooooo soft!

Feral- How was spinning ecospun? I love to try new fibers.

For a second I was like "Wah?" lol sickness has deprived my brain of oxygen and I'm 5 seconds too slow :|

Subloke: I LOVE your Bob yarn. It's so fiery!

FeralFeminine: I love the uniformity of colors in Seascape, but when you look closer there are a rainbow of colors!
And I love your inspiration for Unmentionables.

inle_rah: I love the massive rainbow yarn! Bright rainbows colors are fabulous :]
