It's Friday! I have a couple of yarns to share this week.

8oz, Grape Jelly Louet Northern Lights plied with white Corriedale. Spun in the car a few weeks ago (Yes my Lendrum fit in the front seat of my Malibu in working order! WooHoo!!!)

4oz Organic Merino from the Spunky Eclecti club a few months back, Navajo plied.

2 fraternal twin skeins from batts by Liz of Hobbledehoy, 1 is a single and 1 is plied with a commercial bamboo.

Hope everyone has a nice Friday and weekend.

Ooooooh.... LOVE the second yarn! The others are lovely too though.

In the end, only kindness matters.

All three are gorgeous! I love the colors of the second and third, but the first looks really cool with the white and the purple/blue together.

oy, not that many yarns this week! well, good thing i've come by to post this week, as it's literally been ages! although, i only have meager offerings!

not a great quality pic, but it's the best i could get of this yarn. this is a dk weight yarn. spun from roving dyed by lynne vogel for her pattern (ripple) in the spring 2009 edition of knitty.the colors are very springy, but to me they very much look like the dry grass/fields of texas in summer; everything is dry as a bone from the 100 degree plus temperatures (everyday) and then the pops of light blue and pink in the tiny field flowers that spring up! this yarn literally looks like my backyard right now!

and here is the yarn overwhelming my poor ball winder! i wish you could better see it, but that ball is HUUUGE!!!

this is teased cotswold locks grown by the sheepies and dyed by the people at homestead wool and gift farm with one ply of natural merino. this is a really cool yarn. i also have a second, smaller skein of this, as all those voluminous cotswold curls wouldn't fit on one bobbin after i plied it!

knitting and spinning and the hilarity that comes along with it:

I've been doing some singles for a change (I'm back to the corespun for next week though Wink )

The picture doesn't capture it, but this one shines beautifully.

All I have for this week is an extra bulky 2-ply Oatmeal Shetland

I managed to remember to snap a pic before finishing this collar

Did get a few more rovings (3.5 lb) dyed for next weeks fiber fest though ...

These are from the leftover dye of the first group  ... waste not, want not!

Oooh, so many yummy yarns! I haven't spun this week because I've been working on a gift for a baby shower and finishing up my swap items, but you can bet I'm gonna make up for it next week!
