Aaah, so many gorgeous yarns!
I finished my other yarn after dark yesterday so I just got a photo.
This is the "before", technically finished but kinda bleh:


And this is the "after", with pompom yarn and more sparkle:


It's a Noro yarn base with some handspun wool and novelty yarns wrapped around it; 71 yds. The true color of it all is somewhere in the middle of those two pictures. Reminds me of berry-picking!

Wow! You guys are amazing this week. Every single yarn in this thread is outstanding.

Here is my humble offering. Smiley Two cops of bulky 2-ply that I just plied and pulled off of my Turkish spindle a few days ago. I still need to set the twist. I just can't decide whether this will be a weaving or a knitting yarn yet. Weaving yarns should be dried under some tension. I'm thinking it would make a nice warp for a thick green tweedy scarf, but then I think about knitting a hat out of it.  Cheesy At least there are many months before anyone would want/need what I make from it, so I'll take my time deciding what it will become.
