I can share this week!
~200 yards, 5.4 oz, [alpaca, wool, angora] blended on my carder, 2 ply. Another lazy yarn just spun for the sake of spinning. Uneven to boot!

Still quite lovely!

Can you believe it's friday again?  I can share this one now!  It's been received by my awesome swap partner, Pinkleo in the IYP.  I'm not sure she's unraveled it yet, since I pulled it into a magic yarn "ball" LOL

This is actually a terrible picture... It's got little pigtails all over it.... there was a good 12 -13 oz of this BFL I spun.   That was the first skein.  I ran out of the skinny pigtail single, but ekpt on plying and this is the second skien of it.... Also, a terrible picture!

I've never thought of them as pigtails, Kara. Like my rain drops, right? Sweet. 13oz? sweet. Yardage? Ooh, MYBs, I love MYBs! PinkLeo is pretty lucky, eh?

PIgtails, raindrops, you know, whatever you want to call them, you can't really see them in that picture.  I think pig tails is what they are described as in most of the books I've read.   I'm thinking I'm the lucky one.  I've not got my package yet, but I know what's coming, and am SUPER excited for it!
