Pretty pretty! I love how fuzzy it is. :3 The subtle colors are very nice.


I actually spun some yarn this week people! It's been FOREVER! It's just a natural fingering-ish 2-ply. Not ready to share it yet though because I have to DYE it! It's going to be self-striping for some ~rainbow~ socks. Woot! Tongue

Love the color of that yarn! I'm still working on the rainbow colored merino/tencel from last week. Been having some trouble with my hip that makes me feel like an old woman. lol
