I call it "The Yummiest Yarn I've Ever Spun (Thus Far)."  It's 110 grams for Peruvian wool that I dyed with Kool-Aid and then spun on my new Ashford Kiwi 2.  There are some places that are a bit overspun, I'm still getting used to the tension (it doesn't seem to work quite like the manual states) but I did manage my highest yardage ever, at 116 yards.  Overall, this one is my favourite dye/spin job ever! 



It's being gifted to Pinkleo in the Ongoing Wish Swap 101.  I hope she's not looking...
