some spinning

A few yarns in progress, in no particular order - 
Indigo!
This beautiful stuff was dyed by Laura Mayotte (aka indigonightowl,) and I've now finished spinning and plying a two-ply light worsted weight yarn to strand with commercial sage green in my Stilwell sweater.  Love every moment of proximity to indigo.
Came home to a gift (from myself) of more Yarnwench goodness - a mix of fibers, dyed with various natural dyes.  Such a treat.  Spinning it rough, adding in some fabric knots and bursts. 
This has been going on for a little while.  A nice singles of Studioloo merino/viscose, seen here in India. It is being plied, right now, with a bulkier, more expressive singles called Sinfonia.
And some mostly-neutral battlets.  I'm going to spin Noise.


I'll gladly show you what happens to all these, but only if I get some comments - ha!

Here's another comment! LOL! The indigo is certainly a lovely color and so smooth. Anxious to see what becomes of it all. Get busy!

Tracy - Your yarn and photos are as lovely as you are. I'm so glad we met and had time together at TSA.
