Spinnings on my Spindle

I have had my wonderful spindle for about a month now and have had a blast teaching myself to use it.  I’ve been making my way through the PhatFiber box I purchased last month and am finally happy with some of the outcomes I’ve produced.

I used the dye kits I received from Color Bug Yarns (although I used Kool-Aid packages I bought).  The lighter, almost white, is actually a really light green.  This was the first time I plyed, and really enjoyed the process.

This one was from Spinfusion.  It’s Merino in color: Chocolate Covered Cherries.  I love how thin I was able to get this.

And this is my latest (and my FAVORITE so far).  It’s SW Merino Combed Top in “chocofetti” colorway from Play at Life Fiber Arts.  I loved working with this material.  It felt almost silky like and was a dream to draft.

Pretty Fiber

I happened to be browsing around on Etsy one day and came across some of the most gorgeous fiber at the Fiber Fancy shop.  It was calling to me; luring me in with its beauty and softness.  I HAD to have it.  But then I encountered having to decide between two lovely colors.  I was stuck… lost in a sea of despair.  I had no other choice!  I knew there was no way I could go on with only one, so I bought both.  I am not disappointed!
