Happy fiber friday and everyones yarn looks amazing! Here are my offerings for this week...

Cranberry Sauce - BFL dyed with kool-aid, spun, then plied with some red mystery yarn. I made mittens out of it and this is what I have left.

Midnight sky - BFL I dyed blue and black and some mystery white fluffy fiber that I carded into batts and spun. I made some mitten out of this too and damn they are warm.

Brown alpaca that I am using for a scarflette for a friend

batts that I carded - 80/20 merieno silk with sparkle. It's got white, petal pink, hot pink, leaf green, yello, and sparkle

Romney that I'm spinning for some socks

That's it for now

Luxx!  I love that red and those pink batts.  I've been spinning stuff I've carded, hopefully it will be ready for next fiber Friday! and I think I have to work on it some, the carding that is.  I have an issue with impatience, and I never see problems with fiber prep until I'm at the wheel, and then I realize, oh, I should have done "x". 

And everything looks great, everyone, seriously.  Love Fiber Fridays!

Fiber Friday's always kind of suck for me in a way because I am an 18 yr old girl with no job, who gets an allowance from her parents and most of is sucked up for gas because I have a 40 min commute everyday. Meaning I don't get to hoard fiber 3=

Lufah I looove Strawberry Crush!

I haven't posted in Fiber Friday in forever, but here goes!

Glacier - 65 yards of handspun hand dyed merino.

It gets two pictures because I really like it.   Grin

And here's some superwash merino/viscose roving I dyed recently -

Everything looks beautiful this week!

Ooo such pretty lovelies from everyone this week!..

here's what i've been whirling away at:
blue inego. i haven't had this many problems with fiber. i'm hoping knitting it up won't be such a struggle.

directly off the wheel this morning(i got laughed at by my boy when he walked out of the shower to me feverishly finishing the plying) and a shaky hand taking the image in low light..superwash merino which he bought on a business trip to Atlanta last weekend, 7-8 oz.. black with white highlights...he is looking forward to the hat.. or 3 it will make Smiley

le baby alpaca is waiting for me to spin up the rest.. it is such a  dream to spin. it flows out of the hands its amazing.

Wow! Everyones yarn looks so yummy this week! I hope to be able to participate in next weeks FF. I haven't spun any more since my first yarn which I posted earlier this week, I've been distracted by a funeral that took up several days.
