Love this yarn!

Have a bit of the corrie/merino/silk singles left over
I think this is my favorite handspun to date! It's three ounces, one ply of Jacob and one ply of Corriedale/Merino/silk, both rovings sent to me by Sara after they were left unclaimed in her fiber festival booth last year. Still needs to be washed and set, like the first skein I completed. Now I'm ready to start on my third TdF project. I changed my mind; rather than the Mountain Berries batt, I'm going to spin up some hollyberry top my friend Jeannie gave me. I'm just not feeling batty; I'm more in a top/roving frame of mind right now. ;-)

Oh, just a little reminder of how I got into this spinning thing in the first place:
Beautiful Blaise is my current BFF, although Bali is still my buddy.

That's it for now from . . .

Yarn is so pretty! I love my spinner. Looks like you do to. Mine is a Hanson and I'm so happy with. Poor old feet, ankles and legs just can't use a treadle wheel any more.

Thanks for the compliments, ladies – and for the fiber, Sara! I'm so glad there's a Tour de Fleece to motivate me to sit down and do some spinning like this. It seems to get crowded out the rest of the year.
