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

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