Whee! How fun :D I got my tiny skein finished in just about two days, 36 yards of super thick-and-thin, very soft and fluffy yarn. One ply is 50% mohair/50% wool, and one ply is alpaca and tussah silk.
And now I'm out of fiber... Ack, I can see how addictive this is going to be!!

I like those! Any ideas on what you will use them for?

Once I get some more fiber and spin it up, I will probably use them together as a striped scarf or hat. Or, I will buy some yarn and use my handspun for the brim. :)

Niiiice. I so need to bust out the spinning stuff. I have a large space bag of mill end roving. hmmm. You've inspired me!
