Your color turned out so even! I'm so impressed!

So what are your plans now for knitting it up?

Don't you just love the soup part?

Your yarn is super cute!

Here's my first skein. I got the fiber through an ebay auction, and it was already dyed a "watermelon" color. I have tons of fiber now, waiting to be spun. I just need to make myself do it!

Thanks! It was WAY overspun at first, and slubby because I'm a beginner. I had to run it back through the spinning wheel and "unwind" it a bit by spinning in the opposite direction. After wetting it and letting it dry overnight with a weight, it's finally balanced. But it still causes a bit of a slant when I knit with it.

Oh well, time will make it better, I'm sure.

Take care,

- Sandy
