Today I am bringin the fiber like Metamucil!  ( Embarrassed Meh, MCing is not my strong suit Undecided)

First, this multicolor, multifiber single-ply, about 600 yds, spun from fiber that LeapFeetFirst prepped and generously sent me. This was seriously fun to spin; I only worked on it in daylight so I could enjoy the explosion of colors in all their vividness.


Among the many uses I have for this second-hand masonite board, it also helps me skein up and measure my yarn. It just happens to match the yarn perfectly!


And second, in a more somber colorway, I'm finally-really-done with this wool I've had in the works for at least a few years. It's 1400 yards, single-ply, roving from Ferndale Fiber. It's been respun from a past experiment with thick-and-thin that just didn't look right with these colors. Realistically, maybe I should make it double-ply; I don't think I have the patience for a 1400-yd project!


Okay, photo-sharing is back, so share what you've got, even if it isn't from this week!  Grin

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love the bright colors on the first piece, and I'm curious to see what you do with the second.  Cheesy
