Look, Ma! I made some yarn!

So I finished spinning and plying my merino top. I got two nice-sized skeins from it and it came out to about 270 yards. Now to figure out what to make with it! It came out ok, a little uneven still, but all in all not bad. And I love the color--a beautiful teal with blue, green, purple and a little yellow. Lovely!

SP 7 Heaven!

Hooray for Secret Spoiler! My secret pal from Knittyboard's SP7 really came through on the goods. That's a skein of the softest, loveliest, greenest Malabrigo. It's more fabulous than mere text can describe. Not to mention a huge block of Ritter Sport (with coconut, which I have never seen before!) and, glory of glories, a Jane Austen Action Figure. With Lapdesk and Quill!!!

I love it all and I love my Secret Spoiler!

Chester and Nellie are enjoying themselves, too.You'd think I had them pose, but they are the world's nosiest hams!

"For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?" Too true, Jane, too true!
