I promised to show what I’ve been spinning lately, which honestly its been a few weeks and these have just been drying in the tub. I guess I’ll make up for it this weekend at the festival.

This is Rocket Yarn’s Batt –they’re very loosely carded crazy batts. I picked up 2oz at the Fiber-In this year. Hanks Yarn has them on occasion. I love her label and the two colors of angelina in the batt. I’ve had other batts where the angelia is all bunched up in one spot and make for weak and scratchy yarn, but hers are well blended and balanced. I core spun it around a black handspun single.

The next one is from my own batts . This particular one is from some teal BFL that we dyed a few months ago blended with some of the samples from the September Phat Fiber box. I spun it as a really thin single thinking I could core ply it around some lace weight jaggerspun. I’m not sure what i was doing wrong, but it came out all bobbly instead of a good round yarn. I’m still debating on how to ply the rest of it. I’ll probably end up doing a navajo ply on it this weekend so i can have my bobbin back.

The next one is another from one of my batts made of a rasberry bfl and Phat Fiber samples plus some ginned cotton that one of my Ravelry buddies sent me.

And finally a thanks to Dyeabolical Yarns for using my picture and mentioning us. This was a gift from my MIL and I spun up some of her roving earlier this year. 3 ply sock weight.
