Here is my first project going from fleece to finish. I think the colorway is a little muted myself.
I want to start spinning some more edgy yarn combining fibers and playing with colors and such. Possibly actually putting that Art History degree to work somehow.

Here is a link to a pic of the shawl as I haven't hit my 10 post limit to add a picture yet, being a newbie and all.

I just ordered some camel and llama fiber in great brownie colors that I want to add chunks of pastel merino that I died with food coloring too. I can't wait for those freakin fiber packages to arrive!

oh it's just beautiful!
You must have had to spin super fine to get the yarn thin enough to do a 2-ply!


or just for finished objects/goods:

Handblended batts, handspun yarn and handdyed goodness!
