Hope you feel better soon, Phizzy!

I need some opinion.  I spin up the vendigo green batt from lapoli.  But I can't decide whether to ply it with white, black, heather grey, or by itself.  It is only 1.5 oz.  So what should I do??

Here is what it looks like:


BTW the batt is very easy to spin.  It is very pretty too.  I see more batts in my future.   Grin

Happy Easter everybody Grin

Sorry haven't been around lately.  I join the ravelry Malabrigo March Mr. Greenjeans KAL.  It is consuming all my free time.  I knit and knit and then knit some more.  Have another knitting marathon Fri and Sat.  And now it is finished.

Looke here...


I should have more time to craft.  Just need some inspiration...
