Hey, pmpknpunk, look at this..
It's not even off the wheel but I am so happy with how it looks I gotta share. it's a batt from the uniquely yours spin along on ravelry. It started as 4 different batts. I predrafted them all together and spun them up into a single. Then I plied it with a shiny green thread with a little beads. It's colorful, shiny and nubby.

OH! I also have some yarn that I spun up for my grandmother's christmas present, I really should take a picture of that too!!

AHHHH I love it!!!! What a great idea to predraft them together and the beads just add an extra punch. (I just may have to add beads too, is it bad that I haven't started mine yet? Hopefully this weekend (along with finishing up the Christmas cards that need to go out.)

Wow, pmknpunk, I love that corespun.  I'm off now to check out that seller on etsy.  I love that colourway.  Great job.

I'm really proud of this one, because it's actually worsted weight, and two ply.  Pretty much everything I spin is bulky...

Like these:

calling it "Homewrecker" because it was the batt that broke my carder... cottswold locks, merino, mohair, nylon

calling it Kermit.  it's already gone, so I don't remember the yardage, but it's bulky weight, cottswold and soysilk.

I really love all the yarns this week, but I really love Blue Jay and Flying Fish.  I also love Lorna Lace's Mt Cree, and Kermit.

Don't drink and craftster.

I want you all to know that every Friday I look through these and drool.  I'm so jealous of all you yarnies.   I want to get into one of the yarn swaps that always seem to be going on, but I have nothing to offer.  So I just drool.... (I don't knit, only needlefelt..... a whole skein would last me a lifetime)
