I have so many favs this weeks its not even funny. Fantastic job guys!

I think something that really jumps out at me right now is the variety of colors everyone has. It's like, during the winter colors are a little more toned down, but this week everything is so bright. Quite lovely :]

feralfemenine - I am totally in love with Panama Jack!  It's such an unusual combination of colors, but they go together so beautifully!  Cheesy

I've got yarn lust.

I'm now trying to convince my mom that she should buy me a spinning wheel and everything so I can make my own yarn. somehow I don't think she's going for it.

everybody's yarn is absolutly gorgeous.

Your spinning wheel looks beautiful!! The yarn you spun is great too.
I use an antique wheel similar to yours and really enjoy using it.

Ack! for some reason my picture didn't post. I'll try again.
This is Wonkaville, 65 yards of super-bulky wool that I'm knitting up for a DS Case.

My favorite has to be panama jack. I managed to spin up quite a lot of yarn this week but did not take pictures in time. I will try to do so in time for next week. I think I'm about to become a spinning fool since found someone who is willing to trade web services for yarn and soap.

Great job everyone! I hope to post more often these days since I have renewed last year's resolution to spin a skein a week. Since I pulled off 2 last week, and a lot of plying, I think I am on track!

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

I am excited to be participating in Fiber Friday (even though it's technically Sunday)!

I recently took a spinning class and got a wheel for Christmas, so here's my first spun FO:



It's about 40 yards of roving I got from the Flying Ewe on Etsy a long, long time ago when I first thought I may take up spinning.  I'm pretty happy with it, though there are some places the plying isn't so hot and there's a lot of twist in one of the singles that didn't get worked out with plying.. BUT, I imagine those types of things will get better with time.

I feel hardly worthy to participate, but everyone's yarns are so inspirational!
