On the Bobbin

I did a little core/tail spin this week, it's a different color palette than is typical for me, I'm pleased with how it turned out. There is a lot of texture going on, gotta love texture!

Here's my pre-spin palette, Wensleydale locks, Corriedale, Finn, Mohair, a couple shades of recycled sari silk and some corresponding bling.

And here's my finished skein after a day of resting on the bobbin, it's now having a little tubby to set the twist. I sure had fun with this, I custom dyed all the fiber for this color palette (except the sari and angelina of course) Rich reds, silver, gray, black, bronze...I love color, don't you?

Have a great weekend! Blessings Friends!


  1. You are a rock star! I love your yarn! I do love when you post the photo of the fiber before you spin too. It really shows the transformation and the change in color once spun.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  2. very stunning Melissa, yes got to love texture its very exciting and this one feels especially energetic :)

  3. How glorious!! I just made two scarves with some fabulous handspun art yarn that a friend gave me. I think you spinners have magic fingers!

  4. What fun! I haven't ventured too far down the art yarn path yet, myself.

  5. Super Fabulous color and texture, absolutely love reds. Anxious to see what you do with it. A hat maybe?

  6. Very pretty and very much not your typical colors. Wasn't it fun? Happy Fiber Arts Friday.

  7. Wow, wow, wow is all I can say about this latest yarn.

  8. Oh, I am so very in love with this yarn!!!

    I really really want to spin now, darn those dishes I need to do first! ;)


  9. fabulous yarn, the colours are really beautiful, what will it become?

  10. I think this yarn is beautiful as is. No need to knit it. Just place it on a pedestal in the center of your living room! Awesome colors, awsomely spun!

  11. Super-duper love it!! Great colors and wonderful spinning. Wish I could touch it!

  12. Wow! Your stuff is always so much fun.
