I just got done plying it so it's still on the bobbin, but I was so excited I couldn't wait!!! It's made with this awesome red colonial top that I bought from a local fiber artist. I have 5 oz from her and I bought another 8 oz of the same top at the MDSW. I decided I had to make SOMETHING out of this stuff, since I loved the colors so much, and as I was spinning it, it cried out to be fluffy boucle. I plied it with cotton quilting thread. There is another bobbin of yarn waiting to be plied and about 10 oz of fiber left to be spun.

I love it when I feel like I've finally "gotten" it!

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.
