Spin-a-rama

I took a bit of a break from knitting the past few days, since I'm in between big projects, and set to work on a few batches of handspun.

Maybe I was just inspired after seeing all the awesome things some people are spinning!

Handspun

It's a 100% merino roving by Cyberfiber. Look at those rich beautiful colors! Mama-E knows her dye!!

I just finished a gorgeous 4 oz batt of Woolarina last night - pictures of that one after it dries. It's so pretty!

I also started a braid of Noelle's Noodles. It's still on the bobbin.

I love playing with all the different types of rovings. It's amazing how different BFL and merino and merino tencel each are. I have to spin each of them slightly differently. I'm still very new to spinning, but I still notice that the roving is forcing me to do different things with it.

Have you spun anything lately? What is your favorite type of roving? Do tell!
