Panda roving handdyed by me in really yellow color. I want to call it "Sunshine."

My spinning wheel has been a little bit neglected in the past 2 weeks. So I spent some quality time with my Ladybug this morning. 

I handdyed this roving few weeks ago. It's SW Merino/Bamboo/Nylon blend and I'm going to 3 ply it for some nice sock yarn.

Handdyed 60% SW Merino/30% Bamboo/10% Nylon blend.

I think the undyed roving was from Ashland Bay and I got it from Paradise Fiber. It was a while ago so I am not 100% sure but I used to buy a lot of undyed roving so I can practice dyeing and spinning... I still have some leftover so I think I'm going to be dyeing a little more in the next few weeks.

And I finally skeined the Superwash BFL from Squoosh Fiberarts. This was Squoosh Fiberarts' 2025 colorway. It's part red, part brown, part light blue... basically really wonderful. It was really soft, and I just spun it straight from the roving without dividing it or anything, and navajo-plied it. It came out a little thicker than true fingering weight yarn so I think this will be a really great sport-weight socks if I knit it on Sz 1 or 1.5 needles.
