Surf's Up! - new yarns!

I listed a couple of yarns on etsy today, along with a bamboo color yesterday. The art yarn is "Surf's Up" and I think I may be spinning more of it soon. It was really difficult to capture the colors accurately, but I tried my best - it is shades of blues and greens. I also spun up "Futomaki" - a color of Falkland from cloudlover. I haven't yet spun anything today, but I'm hoping to get at least two single plys spun for listing tomorrow. In the queue for this coming week? Some merino/silk 3plys, I think, along with some bulky 2ply "Squish-tastics". I also still have some art yarns ready to go but I'm doing them slowly, alternating them with some other types.

In other news, it is now official - I will be at the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair again this summer! It is held at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, Illinois in July - July 17, 18, and 19th specifically. I'll be there with lots of new yarns! As of right now, it is my next show and might be my only show this summer.

Now, here is the mosaic of the new yarns, and I better get to spinning!

I love the surf's up, so glad I bought that one, it worked up beautifully! Hope to have that cowl listed later this week. The green sparkle in this skein is really nice, I like it. Different than your others.

thank you both! i plan on doing more of this one soon, though some of the yarns i used (for Surf's Up) were just leftovers so the next skeins will be a little different.
