New yarn

I dyed the fiber for this yarn shortly after returning from my trip to Scotland. Originally the colors were chosen to be reminiscent of the Scottish landscape, but that was much more apparent in the roving form than in the finished product. In any case, I am super happy that I spun a bulky yarn. I've been doing mostly DK weight stuff and was worried that I had forgotten how to spin a bulkier yarn, but it came pretty easily and I am super happy with the result.

Check it out:

I call it "Staffa", because the boat ride out to that island was pretty much my favorite part of the whole trip.

Pretty yarn! I had to relearn to spin bulky fingers just don't want to do it.
