Everyone, you're very kind. It's all simple spinning, but I am very happy with the outcomes.

Oooo, if you're impressed with this, then you'll love what I'm spinning now *evil grin*

Photos later....when I'm finished.

Can't wait to see!

I'm working on an Alpaca/Merino/Silk Blend (spun cob weight) that I will ply with yet-to-be-spun Border Leicseter / Wensleydale X

Alpaca/Merino/Silk Blend
Gorgeous colors, reminds me of the Peace rose with just a hint of yellow with the soft pink.
