Mostly because I'm too busy/lazy to measure and take pics of what I make.  So I took some tonight and it should only be four photos. 

First:purple one is hand dyed merino, two ply worsted, about 90 yards.  The other is black and white mill ends 2 ply worsted and also abt 90 yards

And the greens.  All are two ply, hand dyed merino,  mill ends and merino/silk blend.  I won't bore you with the numbers Smiley

Purples: all of this is hand dyed merino.  one thread plied, one soft singles (the first one I've made that wasn't overspun!), and one two ply

Last: The first three are two ply, the last is 3 ply.  first one is merino/silk and the rest are hand dyed mill ends.

They all have names, ask if you'd like to hear them, I don't have the energy right now.  Thanks for looking!!

I've always thought the best job EVER would be coming up with names for paint shades  Cheesy
I'd love to know what you named these
and steal the pinky-greeny-beigey one while you're not looking

that one is called "country christmas"

I can't remember all of them right now (I'm at work), but I do know that the light green one is "shamrock shake", the orange/blue 3 ply is "hopscotch" and the purple thread plied is "blurple" Smiley 

Hopefully my nameing will improve as my spinning does!

"Hopscotch" is such a cute name and I love the tiny aqua hints in that one.

Spinning terrifies me - it's one of those things that just makes your jaw drop when you watch it being done and I'm SOOO impressed by anyone who can do it Smiley

Oooh.  Very pretty.  You've certainly been busy.  I especially like the black and white mill ends.

And coming up with names for my colors is one of the most difficult things for me.  I am always impressed with people that come up with great names, and feel like mine are kind of boring.
