Spinning at home...

While I haven't been spinning in public, I have been spinning at home. Here are my latest 2 yarns.

These pretty fibers from Skeinwinder 123....
Became this yarn. A soft, squishy worsted weight yarn.
And I carded up some brown wool with some gold sparklies & got this yarn.....
I am trying to design a shrug using this brown with my Pharoh yarn. I searched Ravelry for 2 nights into the wee hours of the morning for the perfect pattern & couldn't find it. So I'm striking out on my own.
I will let everyone know how that turns out. :)

In other news... I got my May Random Beauty Batt Club shippment from Beth over at Blue Mountain Handcrafts. Check out this awesome package!
That beautiful batt there is 4.4 oz! It's HUGE! And soft, & squishy, & sparkly, &, &.... ha ha. She also sent a crap load of fiber samples (silk, cormo, mini batts, locks, etc), some purple plying thread, a pretty vintage flower pin, , sticky notes, some yummy smelling hand soap & a whole flock of sheepies.

I love spinning Beth's batts, they are so dang fun. I highly recommend the batt club, she taylors each package to what kind of "stuff" you like. Come on spinners, you know you want one. he he

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I plan on getting dirty in my flower beds, & enjoying it.
