Got yarn? I do. And I love it. Of course, it's being sent away to my Dye-o-Rama pal.

After another day of dyeing with the fabulously talented Ms Vanessa, I was able to pick up last week's ball o' yarn:

That's gorgeous Linz! I'm jealous! Maybe I should have joined Dye-o-Rama after all...

Wow, you're fast =)

Thanks! I love the skein, I just wish I could get a decent photo of it. It's really quite something in person.

Hi Linz! I got the yarn yesterday afternoon, and I love it! (It smells great, too!) The colours are fabulous and I can't wait to make socks with it!
