The promised pics (fingers crossed!)

All of these yarns will be available at Yarn Rescue within the next week or so, I guess.

Here are a bunch of skeins, not all of them, that I've been spinning lately on my wheel (have I mentioned I LOVE my wheel?)

This is "Understated" 45 yards of injection-dyed domestic wool - super bulky. I got the muted colors by injection dyeing but only letting the colors set in the microwave for about 5 minutes instead of 15.

This is "Trippy Hippie" 64 yards of Falklands wool dyed by Sheilah - the colors in this skein are WAAAAY brighter than the pic. It's gorgeous fiber, and I'm trying to see if I can get more of this fiber from Sheilah so I can spin a 2-ply yarn.

This is "Study in Purple" 95 yards of soft, squeeshy domestic wool dyed by Amy. Her fiber rocks, BUY SOME!

An oddly deflated skein pic - "Rocket Pop" 50 yards of hand-dyed domestic wool. Very pretty blend of orange, berry and sky blue.

"Rainbow Connection" spun slightly thick n thin, a soft Corriedale X fiber (not dyed by me). It amazes me that I take a skein off the bobbin that seems SO overspun (still working on a nice, even single) but that, when hung to dry, has no twist in it. I must be spinning a more even yarn than I think!

I have apparently angered the Blogger gods and that is all for today. We're going down the shore for the weekend, but I might bring the laptop and try to log in at the Starbucks down there. If not, have a good weekend, y'all!

Pretty yarns! I love "trippy hippy!"

I did indeed like the beer. I'm a big fan of ale and microbreweries. Do you have an Iron Hill Brewery near you? As much as I like beer, though, I'm at heart a tequila girl. Margaritas, mmmm....

Awesome link! Thank you so much!

I'm thinking of saving a bit of the fleece to handwash myself and process with wool combs when I can afford them. The rest I'll probably send off to a fiber processor. I'll probably have more than enough fiber for myself, so if these plans manifest themselves eventually, I'll let you know if I can share the booty.
