Finished & WIP

I just had to take another photo of this huge, gorgeous skein of handspun yarn!! It's soft & squishy, I love it!! I should have put my hand or something in the photo so you can see just how large this skein is, amazing. LOL Thanks again Chan, it's been the Christmas present that just keeps on givin! Now I just have to pick out some kind of pattern for it.

So the thumb is still sore & tingly.... and I'm spinning yarn like crazy. I feel lost in the evenings without being able to knit or crochet. Needless to say I'm gonna have tons of yarn to knit with if the darn thumb ever quits hurting. However I'm probably going to be out of fiber. he he

I had 2 oz. of each of these greens. It's 100% wool from The Flying Ewe. I'm in the process of plying these 2 together. I'll get better photos without the flash after I get it all finished up.

Hope everyone has had a good week. I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to the weekend!
