I am officially obsessed with plying with thread. This whole skein spun up in about 15 minutes. I don't know about you- but for me that's super fast. The second one on this page took me about an hour! This thread is metalic silver and it looks very sparkley and cute in real life. sigh... Cheesy




This yarn is the third skein of its kind I have made. I am going to make the little shrug from fitted knits with it. Um hopefully- my yarn might be a little too thin... It's sooooo nice though. Its a merino silk blend. YUM!

Forgive my non-knowing-spinning terms, but I love the "curliness" of the blue one, but the colors of the second. Cheesy

They both look great!  I dream of the day I can spin anything in less than a couple of hours...  Look forward to seeing the shrug!
