Yarnaholics unite!
I learned to spin last summer, and my husband got me a wheel for my birthday...

I've done my first "production" run of yarn on it and I love how it came out Cheesy you can see it on my blog if you're interested.

Question for you guys - esp the knitters & crocheters - what kinds of projects would you do with yarn that's multi-ply, but the plies are different colors....I can't "navajo" ply to save my life (keeping the colorway intact throughout the ply) so I'm just plying my singles together...the yarn is gorgeous, I am just having a hard time figuring what to do with the skeins I'm keeping for myself!

or just for finished objects/goods:

Handblended batts, handspun yarn and handdyed goodness!

Looks great, Steph! I would use this for anything that I would use any other yarn for. But I am one to wear all sorts of crazy colors in a garment! I would do something that is in the round so you don't have to worry about the varigation being different in the front than in the back.
