Ooooh, I love Morocco and Froggy Went a-Courtin'! So many lovely yarns this week, but those are my favorites so far. Here are my yarns for the week!

"Perfect Pathway," 153 yards of colorful 100% wool two-ply. The colors will shift from one end of the skein to the other when it's knit up!



"Mimosa", wool, flax, bamboo, mohair, plied with cotton thread strung with teardrop shaped Czech glass beads.



And this one is unnamed at the moment...a softspun yarn from Rambouillet (that I processed myself), millends wool, and some natural soysilk. Super thick and thin, as thick as my thumb in some spots!

All of the yarns look amazing this week  Cheesy.

I tried my hand at my first art yarn. I plied a finn single with transparent thread strung with sequins. You can only see one sequin in the photo for some odd reason, but trust me there are tons!

Beautiful, simply beautiful!

I can't even begin to choose a favorite!

Got some spinning done this week but no pics, except a goregeous Tunis fleece I just got in  (and this is straight off the sheep and skirted, it hasn't been scoured yet!)

I'm just dying here with everything just beyond spectacular.  I love it all.

Good news, I will be getting out the drop spindle to spin some goodies for a swap (who knows which swap partner will get it Roll Eyes).  I can't wait to do some spinning again.

That fleece is gorgeous!  I've always preferred prepared fibre, but I think that tunis fleece could convert me.

The yarns this week are beautiful!  I love them all, and really wish I remembered to spin more often.

I have some SILK to show off!
It was my project for the tour de fleece and it's all I did. Oops. I got distracted by a corset....

It's about 230 yards. It smells FANTASTIC. It was a brick I picked up at the estes park wool market. I'm going to knit it into some sort of shawl, I just need to go digging around for a low yardage shawl pattern.

nicolassa, Join the weavers guild of boulder with me?  Tongue
