Here's just a quickie before bedtime (so early, so sad) to say two things:
1) Spring is here! Truly! So warm, so many birds chirping, so many peepers peeping!
2) My newly-finished yarn looks like spring-in-a-skein and I ADORE IT!

Those glorious hanks are 150 yards of an aran-ish weight 2-ply yarn made from a beautifully dyed batt of mixed fibers from Inglenook Fibers:
and an undyed merino/silk blend from Schafenfreude Fibers, 

Glowing with glory!
I love the way the colors play together, all the pinks and lavenders and greens and blues and browns. And the best part is, it's wonderfully soft, not scratchy at all. Yay! I can't wait to knit something with it. What would you make?

I've already started spinning my next batch of fiber:
Bugga Fiber from Cephalopod Yarns, colorway Yubaba

and check out how thin I'm spinning it:
So so excited. I feel like I'm getting pretty good now. In my Fiasco's words: "Wow, you could floss with that!" Apparently that's the new standard for judging the thinness of yarn. :)

  1. I wish I could spin that thin on my spindle, I keep seeing people do it and it makes me want to so badly! I love your yarns.
    Found this through Spindler's Group on Rav, and adding to my watch list :)


I love reading your comments, thanks for stopping by!
