Finally, some new (art) yarns!

I finally have listed some new art yarns! (also a couple skeins of Ice Princess bamboo, a single ply spun from an optim/soy blend, and a Springtime in Paris bamboo skein) . . . but mostly, I'm so happy to have some new art yarns! I went on an art yarn sorting spree this weekend, where I matched up fibers with novelty and specialty yarns. That process always takes some time, but now that I've got them all sorted they are ready to spin. I managed to spin two colors this weekend - Twilight Garden and That 70s Yarn/Clockwork Orange - and have at least 4 more colors ready to go. Plus, i've got a few other colors tentatively ready, too. I will probably be spinning these most of this week but will also spin a few skeins of bamboo here and there. I should have more Falkland wool for more single plys by mid-week, so I also hope to have some more single plys done by the end of the week. For now, though, here is a mosaic of the newest yarns listed in my etsy shop -

I love the boho. Very bright and full of exciting bits and bobbles. I still want to try the 70's yarn, that will be on my buy list next time around. Something about that lime green and orange combo makes me drool.

thanks! boho is so fun, love those colors, too. and the 70s yarn is also one of my favorites - even though while i was spinning it i wasn't sure if it would work or not!
