NightShade & Neapolitan!

Friday night I finished spinning up the May Fiber of the Month from Spunky Eclectic's Spunky Club. I have two skeins of single ply . . .

They are both on my website at kittygrrlz.com

I also finished this wonderfully soft yarn that I spun from superwash merino wool roving dyed by ChicksWithSticks! I commissioned the color to match some Bernat Cool Crochet yarn/thread that I bought on sale at Joanns last week. It worked out exactly how I hoped! This yarn is available on my website.

Today, I spun up some super soft merino wool dyed by the Yarn Wench
I decided to make it another "two ply with flair" so also spun in some soft Cotswold Lamb locks that matched perfectly! (they were also dyed by the Yarn Wench.) This is a preliminary picture taken before setting the twist (it is drying right now!):

I've got some fibers prepped for tomorrow as I plan to spin most of the day! Woohoo! :) Gotta love the weekend!

I LOVE the third yarn! I have been doing some brightly colored skeins lately as well, but that one is beautiful! I also checked out your etsy shop and saw you were from WI- I'm in oshkosh, so I just wanted to say hello.
