Yummy Merino!

Remember this?

8.9 ounces of yummy merino from my brother and sister in law for Christmas (My SIL has such good taste!) and I'm enjoying their company right now!!

It was a dream to spin!  It is a 3 ply yarn.  I was going for something a little thicker and I am pleased with the result!

So we have 8.9 oz, 383 yards in a 3 ply yarn!  (the pic of the fiber is the most accurate colorwise)  You know what I've discovered?  I can spin yarn faster than I can use it!  Talk about scary....Must knit faster!  or spin slower I guess :)  I still find spinning so magical.  You start with fluff and get yarn, but it isn't finished there.....still full of potential and waiting to be made into something.   Too much fun!

Honey--I'm so glad you love spinning so much--it has got to be so satisfying to see the fruits of your work like you do.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful, blessed Easter.

Spin it all up. Knit it all up. And start all over.

It's really pretty.
