8:46 pm - Eco Bottle

mnsfibers
ecobottle

This is just a tiny skein, spun from plastic fiber from bottles and natural brown wool locks.

Sorry for missing last week, still recovering from having to uninstall and reinstall all computery things here :)

Topics for the next couple weeks are:
(today)September 5thOrganic- naturally colored, organic, recycled…

September 12th Awash in fabric-a crochet rug, pieced bag, and yarn galore all in one and one for all.

September 19 Paperbound- scrapbooking and yarn all in one? Spinning Shredded newspaper? You betcha!

September 26th Campy- vintage and a little bit retro? Park themed?

How do people like having the topics posted in advance? Good/bad? I know some communities only do it a week out or so, but I know many people commented here they don't have time to do something in a week (I know I don't, my mordanting process is twice that, ha!).

Anyways, if you have ideas for F_F topics, let me know here in comments or email (through my site, whatever). Thanks :)

Unknown wool fiber, clippings given to me by a friend. Spun it in the grease and loved it. Very natural white to light light tan.

8:56 pm - Cosmic Upgrades

mnsfibers



Red Dwarf: I handspun a local cashmere that I dehaired by hand for one strand of the yarn, blending it with lots of red angelina and spinning it long draw. The other ply is a simple thick and thin mohair from a mohair roving. I fulled it slightly to make it more fuzzy by alternating baths of hot and cold.

9:48 am - solar flare

purlewe
Galaxy series from Spunky Eclectic. This is the first of 10 balls of fluff. Spun on a Kundert 1.5 oz spindle. Came out a bit thinner than I wanted at 15 wpi. But I really love how it looks so I won't quibble.

There has been no action on the Fiber Friday community in quite some time, so I'm reposting a topic for next week.

This week (as in tomorrow) post something you made recently, or something, anything that inspires you to create! 

For next week, August 22, the topic will be:

COSMIC UPGRADES
think space age and flying saucers


Have fun and happy creating!

Duck Duck, thick and thin white wool slub with a stripe of naturally dyed wool at the end. I spun it up with really giant knots/coils in it- many of them are over an inch across.

10:24 am - Tomatoes

sprouty25
I love fried Green tomatoes--and I can still steal some from my garden.
I just finished this yarn--it's my first 3 ply and was spun from Insubordiknit's "Olive Bark" roving.
