Yes I would love to see a photo as well. what are you going to make with your precious. Or is it still in the touchy feely stage. I have some I just take out sometimes to touch and cuddle then it is put back in storage, still don't know what to make with it.

Well it's a hand dyed yarn from where I live (Nova Scotia, Canada) and it's the most vibrant indigo blue with little light spots thru out. I would love to add a pic but i've never done it before. If someone tells me how to do it in very simple terms I WOULD LOVE TO POST IT!! Oh and i made my favourite baby booties with it the first day that I got it and i just finished the first bootie of a second set. I've only had it two days!!!! I thought that i would use the entire thing on booties just so that I have lots in stock because EVERYONE I know is having babies and I have had requests from people that want me to knit some for friends of theres. And once i'm done with my bootie mania? I think the dark side may swallow me up! I've never seen such beautiful colours! It really is unique to quality yarn isn't it? I could never find a coulor like this at Michaels. OH no...I feel myself slipping away...... Please someone tell me how to post a picture and i'll do it tonight. i like it when you can see them as you read, i dont like it when you need to click on a link. Help me guys! I'd love to show you!!!!!!!
