Thanks everybody!

Esther you've outdone yourself this week. You already know I like the Tencel and Loop yarns and all the corespuns are pretty, but the first one is absolutely gorgeous. Shiny locks and blue green, sigh.

Belladune is that going to be you new years resolution: Spin more yarn!?
Spinning by candle light sounds so romantic... Even though the reason wasn't.

yberry - Welcome! I like the silk hankies one best. I don't think I would ply it with anything though. It's pretty as it is.

Jenna - I spin my plied yarns from handpainted roving, patchwork or from batts, depending what look I'm after. The ones from this week are all from handpainted roving (top to be precise) though.
Love your coiled yarn. Super coils just seem to 'eat' yardage.
Size 35 needles?! How long did it take you to knit the scarf with them?

Thanks!
The photos from the mushroom dyeing workshop are cool! So atmospheric. Dyeing outside under the trees in a big kettle... And the leaves even match the yarns you dyed.  Cheesy
