Was that the picture on the ballband?
Just winding it into useful balls is a couple of months work. It looks like you could double it and still make several sweaters. Wow!

Nah. There is no ballband on this yarn. It came from Twisted Sisters, who do a lot of hand-dyeing of wool yarn at their place in California. My thought is that maybe they dyed this yarn for a project, then decided the color wasn't exactly what they wanted.

It's FIVE POUNDS of fingering weight wool. I wish I had a big enough swift to hold it all. I guess I'll have to wrap it around some dining room chairs and walk around the two of them with my ball winder. I will probably get dizzy doing that.

Oh....by the way. The "movie poster" was an image that I found online. Has nothing to do with the yarn.

I'm picturing this giant ball coming from the yarn. It reminds me of the song I Lost My Poor Meatball When Somebody Sneezed. Can you picture this thing rolling down the hill, picking up speed, and picking up everything in it's path for miles? haha


On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.

I used to sing that meatball song ALL THE TIME when I was a kid. My poor parents. I also sang "Found a Peanut, Found a Peanut" and "You Get a Line and I'll Get a Pole, Honey", and "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall", and a wild assortment of other winners.

Nice cowl ya got there!

You probably have enough for a dress AND a shawl. Did you see this one that just went up on Ravelry? It's a free pattern:
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fragrance-2
and it only takes 420 yards, which wouldn't even put a dent in that
