After cleaning off my bobbins last week I started spinning this lovely:



It's 4oz. of superwash merino. At first the colorway, called Thieves, struck me as pretty but in a sort of ugly way, if that makes sense. I absolutely had to have it.  Grin

The colors are spinning up beautifully with lots of twists of blending colors. It's so much fun to watch the colors coming together. Even after drafting a bit you still can't really tell how it's going to look in it's yarny stage. This is what I'm getting so far though!!!



Just look at those twists!  Cheesy

Lariarocket -
That yarn makes me think of crocuses...or is it croci...whatever the plural is that's what the yarn reminds me of. My favorite spring flower! The purples, yellows, greens and white...beautiful.

That's why I call my thrown together batts, "Ugly Ducklings" ... they alway turn into 'swans'!!!

I've been busy spinning and knitting or crocheting to get orders and Christmas gifts out .... no pictures though!
