Wow! Everyone's stuff is so fantastic! I feel like such a noob!
So even though I have posted my newest yarn creation already, I thought I would post here the roving that I bought when I was at a festival here in MN. I knew I was getting a wheel, and even though this roving is gorgeous so I want to save it, I bought it anyway!
The white is roving I am using for learning, it is really nice, but not too expensive. I tried to learn on some yuckier stuff, but it was too hard. I guess my wheel is particular!

The next 2 are ones that I got for about $7 for 4 oz. they feel like cashmere. They had so many wonderful colors, it was hard to pick. Luckily I kept their card so I can buy more!


The last pic is of 2 different rovings, one greenish, the other bluish. When I saw them I immediately thought I would spin and ply them together. They said a lot of people had been saying that. about 3 oz a piece at $5. Kept their card too.

This weekend I will probably play with the last 2 rovings. I am kool aid dying as we speak with the white roving spun into a single. I have this nifty antique yarn winder, which I thought was like a swift, but it turns out it is fantastic for pulling yarn off the bobbin and winding. I just let it set all stretched out on the winder for about a day, and it keeps that twist nicely.
Here is a pic of the yarn on the winder:

Mulderknitter, what you have is a skein winder (that can be used as a swift). It is also called a reel.

If it has a device that clicks, then it is a click reel.

I also have an old one and after some use, the wooden screw started to deteriorate so I quit using it

those are some good looking yarns and fibers mullerslane and mulderknitter!

i'm so excited .. i got my drum carder today!
i decided to go with the strauch petite carder since i wouldn't have to save up any extra..i didn't think it was so big!..but of course after using it i already feel like i need a bigger one

one of these days perhaps..and now to the batts!


lincolin-finn wool that i've been saving cause i loved the colors, some chocolate bamboo, natural colored soysilk, and 3 different colors of angelina..i love them!

and this one is a scrap batt..superwash, sparkly plying thread that got tangled up..so i cut it and threw it in, recycled yarn, alpaca, targhee lincolin-finn, angelina and who knows what else!

Great batts,Foxyie! I especially love the scrap batt!

That man pouch is simple, but elegant, Liliyarn! I love the way jacob spins and knits up!

I can hardly wait until "the boys" (DH & DS) get back from Gettysburg (reenactment). I sent the camera with them and I spent all day yesterday carding up batts - 7 colorways, each 4 oz - then pulling them into roving.

Today, after farmer's market, I put up some strawberry jam and getting ready to make 8# of milk soap .... or ply my latest yarn ... not sure which I'll do first

Here is my first attempt at spinning some skinny singles (hopefully laceweight or somewhere in there). Sorry the pic is sooo red but took the pic with my phone cam.
It's superwash merino (at least that's what I was told) in a lovely deep red n maroon colorway.
