Rockpool, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

I finally managed to finish spinning this lovely Spindlefrog falkland fibre. It came out a little bit thinner than I was aiming at, but it's so pretty that I don't mind! I ended up with 518m from the 100g, which is quite a lot for me. I'm thinking that it will make a really nice shawl for me :)

On the wheel: All Spun Up 70% superwash merino, 30% alpaca in gorgeous jewel colours. Mmmmm, soft and lovely. This is also coming out quite thin, I'm thinking of a n-pled sock yarn.

On the spindle: Warratah Fibrecrafts shetland, in grey and purple, on the Bosworth spindle. It's spinning really easily, and is so pretty. I'm thinking that it'll end up as a DKish weight 2 ply.
