natashafatale, i love the shades of blue in your yarn...and the sequins.  Of course, you can throw anything sparkly into yarn and i am pretty much guaranteed to love it.

veludo, you are doing great at spinning.  I like the red/black/white combo.  For some reason, I always have a difficult time getting good shades of red fiber.

I haven't posted on fiberfriday in forever!  Here's what I did the other day-

3 oz. Merino Wool - 173 yds.
Hand dyed, handspun by me

But I've also been spinning a ton of other stuff too.  It just finally got on etsy today.

Here is some of my new stuff all together:

It's like a rainbow!

I'd post more pictures, but I've got to run to work.  I almost forgot that it was fiber friday!

Oh how I love Fiber Friday. I actually developed a weird skin condition on my hands that led to them getting EXTREMELY irritated anytime I spun. It was traumatizing to say the least. I couldn't spin for six months! But it's under control now so I'm getting back to practice!

This is some anonymous wool with mohair locks spun in. It's sort of overspun in some places but I love it. I call it The Glorious Return of Spinning.

And this is Malibu Nights, Tangerine Dreams, my yarn dedication to the hidden track on Tenacious D's album. The actual yarn didn't look anything like this yarn. This is just a tribute. (Don't worry if that makes no sense.) : )

My finished spin for the week, Falkland, 11wpi, about 98m.

I just finished plying another 2ply but I think I'm too lazy to get it off the bobbin tonight.
I really must try some more art yarny stuff, you guys post such amazing stuff!

Belladune, I love your dyed rovings!  Esp. the 'Hippy' - the colours blend so nicely.

Great yarns from everyone this week.  I haven't finished anything, but I do have some singles on the bobbin I hope to have finished by next week.

Seems perfectly clear to me...lol Wink

*drool* ...and that about sums up my thoughts on all of this week's offerings! It's getting a bit ridiculous how great all these yarns, batts and rovings are...don't ya think? lol I love it!

I actually have something finished this week! I never seem to have as much time as I would like to spin...ah well, life with a 6 yo boy I guess, lol.
This was spun from Sheep Shed Studio mill ends and plied with neon green thread...Kool-Aid dyed after spinning. The colors are a bit too neon for me though. The orange and the lime green are really bright! The orange reminds me of Cheetos, lol. Approx. 87 yards. (On my monitor the second pic is a little dark but truer to actual color)

Moldy Cheetos  OR  Cheetos and Olives and Limes, Oh My!

Wow, Everything looks so good and squishable!  Grin I totally love the Medusa Supercoils, very nice.

I have a couple this week. Trying to spin a little everyday this month so here are two small yarns from the 1st and 2nd.

This one is a corespun yarn with a technicolor batt I made. Its about 34 yards but this is the best picture I have so far.

This yarn was already made but I plied it  with a dark green embroidery thread to get approx 49 yards then the thread ran out.  Shocked

I used the leftovers and made a small two ply - extra bulky!

That's it for me. I hope to have a larger selection to share next week!

Here are my contributions for the week.

I have one skein of yarn. It's that same undyed single from last week plied with this vintage rayon embroidery thread. I'm calling it "Mimi's House" because it reminds me of the color scheme of my grandmother's house. picture of the living room

A close up to show off sparkle. Smiley

The rest of these pictures are of Sheep Shed Studio mill end rovings I dyed last night for the first time.


Homespun gifts for your friends and family!
Will be posting more items soon. Check back!
