Just a quickie

Here's my handspun as mentioned in the last post. Not perfect, but so pretty! I wish there was decent light so you could see the colors better, but what can a girl do?

It's a merino roving from Spunky Eclectic (bought at Mass. Sheep and Wool), in Toronto. The colors are pretty close to this, but in person it seems more....alive?

BikeJerk took me to the Mt. Auburn Cemetary today for the first time - designed by Olmsted, and ever so lovely. It's full of trees in so many lovely shades, I couldn't help but want to knit them....

Even with the colors not showing to your satisfaction, the handspun is still lovely. And Mt. Auburn cemetery is quite a lovely place; it's a favorite haunt of birders.

My gawd..you spun that yourself?! Looks like a $50 sk of Colinette. Amazing!
