i divided it into 2.3 ounces and spun the singles with alot of twist. i'm not usually a teal person, but looks at how it just accents the color! when they were all on bobbins, i started plying. again i put some twist into it looking for a firm yarn. i had it with me at the last meeting and like a proud momma i'm showing it off to sandy and amythefibergoddess. each of them continued to dash my moment in the sun. like big fat rain clouds i heard 'there's no luster, no sheen' or 'i never liked merino, too dull'
i remained undaunted and was rewarded with this!

it's amazing how different light give it a different color. this is the second attempt at mine. it was about 2 inches long when the recipient informed me that he didn't mean 'exactly like' the one i did before, he meant 'like the pattern was written, before i suggested that you alter it and then proclaimed that it fit me perfectly'. bitter? me? so now we are rolling along. again.

these arrived on my doorstep yesterday and they are stunning! earth is the top colorway and it has all my favorite shades.... chestnut, mahogany, shale pink.... very soft and lovely. air is a thunderstorm! the sky is the color of a fresh bruise... purple, magenta, gun metal....vibrant and striking. my only remorse is that i didn't acquire the other colorways.... i was having a frugal moment (bad, bad girl)
what fun i will have with these.

so i cast this critter on, eons ago. when i turned the calendar, it seems that her birthday is fast approaching. funny how they come every 365 days and i'm still surprised.
