Hello and Happy Friday!

This week I have a yarn called "Summer Fun", 152 yards spun from a mixed batt from Sue's Luxury Fiber, plied with yellow sewing thread.  There were so many different fun different textures in the batt.  It really woke up my fingers as I was spinning it.  I'm showing it pictured on my new squirrel cage yarn swift I found at a thrift store for $6.99.  Nobody knew what it was!  Of course, I thought it was a lazy kate and used it as such until a visit to the local weaver's guild taught me that it's actually a yarn swift.

Very cool, both the yarn and the swift! So much texture, very lovely. Thank you for sharing. I haven't spun this week so I can't share. Sad

Great spins!  Loads of lovely texture on that one, Niks!
That cormo alpaca must be luxurious.  And I'm jealous of your English shep!  They are such cute creatures and smart dogs. I want one!

Thanks!  Ooh, that cormo/alpaca blend looks divine.

And Newt??  My goodness -- he is ADORABLE!  I can almost smell the puppy breath from here.  :-)

I LOVE cormo! And I LOVE doggies! MLF, you have the best post of the week Cheesy

I just finished chain plying ~7.2 oz of random stuff I put together for a Rav challenge. Thinking about making goodies for my brother. Details on the stash page for those interested.
