I am -adoring- the Hornet's Nest handspun. Absolutely gorgeous!

Cozy Knitting said...

I like the black/yellow and black/green combos. I would like to see how they look spun.

Natalie said...

Beautiful! I love Cheschire cat. I should really learn to spin...

Elisabeth said...

The Colonial Wool - Foxyie Combed Top - yellow is absolutely ... yellow! I couldn't wear anything made from this, at least not next to my face, or I would look awful. But I wish I could, it just looks so energetic and cheerful. The pink BFL combed top would be an option for somthing wearable.

The only thing I like better than playing croquet with flamingos is your Hornet's Nest handspun!

Maria said...

Wow! These are beautiful! I love single ply fat squishy stuff!! The scubas, strawberries, and waltz til you drop are my favorites, but the are all beautiful!!

Pink Clouds is adorable!!! What lovely yarns and fibers!

Emily said...

I always find myself drawn immediately to anything with bright teals - especially when there are purples or yellows involved too. So you might be able to guess that I think Hornet's Nest is quite a work of art.

Jennifer said...

Beautiful all! It's a toss-up between Chocolate Sundae and Tropicana.

ashley0607 said...

brownbear said...

The batts and handspuns are all so pretty and interesting that it's hard to pick a favorite. I think it might be a tie between bite me and foxyie.

Hornets Nest just spoke to me, which is odd because I rarely choose those colors. Just a beautiful combination.
