Buying all that fiber got me energized, and I finished up the silk I was spinning on the spindle:
It's not the best yarn in the universe, but it's kinda pretty, AND it's the first decent thing that's come off the spindle for me. Luckily, I seem to be on a roll:
The merino/tencel in Mahogany from Spunky Eclectic is spinning up gorgeously. I'm actually considering keeping it single-ply. Madness!
And a few progress shots of the shawl for my mom:
The first one gets the true colors of the Seasilk, and the sheen, but the second one is more of the pattern. I was worried that the color change in the yarn might be obscuring the pattern, but I don't think it is, after all. Or is it?
