I really love the mermaid purse yarn! Did you dye the yarn yourself LUBEE? I think the teal colour is wonderful!

Here is what I've spun:

grey sky, green forest, 85m/35g

inspired by this picture:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ubookworm/391616702/

Actually this is the second skein I've spun in this colourway, the first was a small test skein which is not as overspun as the one shown above.
This is how the first test skein looks knitted up:


I'm planning spinning enough of this for a vest with a hood, but the many joins might drive me mad before I've spun enough...  Wink

I LOVE the Muppets so here is my fiber interpretation :]


A fantastic mix of Kermit green, Gonzo Blue, ANIMAL!!! Pink, Fozzie Orange, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew yellow-green, plied with with Ms. Piggy Pink thread!

The colors are way brighter. Just not a sunny day today
