Yarn Porn Friday :)

It's been awile, but here is some yarn porn goodness for you :) This is about 850 yards of handspun Shetland, single ply, lace wt. There is 4.1 oz. I carded this fiber a wile ago, like right after I got my carder....so last springish..The wool came from last years Shetland fleece from Helen. I had dyed it before carding and still have a bunch of this color left! I'm thinking this yarn would make a pretty spiffy lace scarf :)

As for knitting I working on another test knit for Momma-Monkey...when I'm finished with that I have a b-day gift for Kath that I must start. She wants a pair of wristwarmers...I'm thinking Fetching from Knitty...Just need to go stash shopping to see what I've got. I'm thinking Cascade 220...so I can make a matching scarf also... After these are done I'm hoping to start something lacey for myself and do some mad x-mas knitting.

On the bobbin right now is a Merino/Tencel blend being spun up in to sock yarn for the shop. I'm planning on dying it in Gooey and Woogie so keep your eyes peeled for that in the next few weeks. I have some spinning I must get done for my sister and MM and then I'm not sure what will be next...

I'm working on beefing up my sock base yarn up so when I do start dying again I can add a bunch of yarn to the shop...I thinking end of Octish there will be a HUGE update!
