Hi everyone!
I'm new to Craftster, so this is my first Friday.
It's great for me to be here and have the chance to learn so much.
I would like to show you some yarns I handspun last week.

The first one is Turquoise. I loosely hand carded my handpainted supersoft merino, a lot of mohair locks and some white mulberry silk. Then I handspun the fibers on a core thread, adding a lot of turquoise stone chips.

This is Punk Fantasy, hand dyed superfine merino with mohair locks and silk hankies:

I handspun the following yarn for my little daughter, who asked me something sparkling to show up next winter.
It's a superbulky supersoft merino yarn, embellished with a lot of felt beaded poppies and plied with a golden thread.
Hope my little princess will like it.

And finally a regular, heavy worsted 2ply yarn.
I named it Aztec Dream.

This is all I could do this week.
Hope to be here next week, as I'm going on holiday and still don't know if I will have an internet connection.

Love from Italy

I have so much to share but my computer is a mess so here is just some of what I have been working on.

The first is some dyed wool I got at the Mass sheep and wool fest. You cant tell by the picture but its a really nice green.

The second is some BFL I got in a swap called Wicked witch. I plied it with some emerald green thread

This was it before

I wish I could share more. Hopefully my computer issues will be fixed next week. Happy Fiber Friday!!!
