I've been spinning and spinning, and plying and skeining and setting the twist and then waiting impatiently for the skein to dry. I wish I could get a picture that shows the true color, but I wasn't able.The real colors are more saturated than the first 2 pix, and more olive-tones than the last 2. It's more Targhee. (I love Targhee!) I think it may become a Clapotis. One way or another I am just itching to finally knit myself something out of yarn I spun myself. So far the only thing I've knit with my own handspun is the moebius I knit for my mom for her birthday. But this beauty is mine, all mine!

(speaking of mine, all mine, I made the last payment on my Joy spinning wheel today. My sister, who so generously loaned me the balance a few months back, is no longer the co-owner of my wheel. We are both happy the transaction has been completed!)

Oh, that is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations, and I can't wait to see what you make with it.

Looks like you have been having lots of fun spinning. I love the colors, especially the greens in the top photo. I can't wait to see what you make.

Trish, that is some beautiful yarn. congratulations. I seem to rarely spin anymore, which is a shame. It's my fiber treat which is not about my work, and I enjoy that.

I did knit myself something from my own handspun twice. Most of my yarn just sits on the shelf looking pretty, but I have two wraps that I made, starting from mere fluff. That's great fun!

Enjoy the sunny fall day. I'm indoors teaching polymer clay buttons at Threadbear today, but they do have nice windows.
