Moar Yarn!

I finished another yarn this weekend, it's pretty small at 33 yards but quite pretty I think. I'm calling it Robin's Egg:


I used wool that I dyed with Japan and Romeo.

As far as knitting, I've been barreling through the Lizard Ridge for my mom and I only have five (!) more squares to finish. Yay!

Milky Way

Phew, well I've finally finished my first plied yarn, and it's called (big surprise) Milky Way. I used wool dyed with Nightboat for the grey and Dragon's Wing for the light green-ish. The silver thread was easily the worst part because I ran out of single ply thread, and the craft store where I work only had two ply, so I laboriously unplied some (never do this, ever! it's not worth it!) after I had taken my yarn off my spindle temporarily. So here it is:


It's 100 yards and I'm very happy with it.
