Newest Obsession Cont...

I finished the coil boil.  Here is the second step of the coil boil, after I core spun the yarn, I coiled it...

...and here is the finished yarn..

Holy cow did this yarn take me FOREVER!  I probably spent 10 hours spinning this and the result is only 10 yards!  Whattt!!  I must admit, it is totally worth it!  It's a pretty sweet yarn.  I'll probably use it to decorate my christmas tree, but then I need to find a permanent spot for it in my house.  This yarn is too cool to sit in a box for 11 months out of the year and only be used to decorate the Christmas tree.   Any ideas on where I can use it in my house?

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

I finished spinning the batt Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater!  I bought the batt from Spin Culture.  Here is a picture of it from the etsy listing...

...and here it is all spun up!

I spun it into a light fingering weight and have 317 yards!  I think I'm going to knit a shawl with it.  I'm thinking Terribly Simple by Caitlin Ffrench.  Something simple to show off the yarn.  Or I could go with something a little more lacey... Seven and Zero or Holes to Make Lace .  As you can see, I LOVE Caitlin Ffrench's patterns!!
