TDF Day 11

So much for day 11 of the Tour de Fleece being a day of rest.  I spun an entire bobbin of alpaca singles. 

I practiced my long draw technique to make this yarn nice and fluffy!  The alpaca skein from yesterday's post was supposed to be for a lonnnnnng needed pair of mittens...well I changed my mind.  I decided I want to knit my mittens with a plied yarn, instead of a single, to give it more strength.  I also plan on dying the alpaca after its spun...a dusty purple maybe?  Any ideas on what color?  (FYI my winter jacket is black)
