Things come back.

The holidays are over. I got some incredible compliments from the instructors I had for my mediation course, which got passed on to me by the woman who runs the credentialing program today. I had my last session my dental work for now. And look what came in the mail:

I can't get the colors right — man this is lovely plying work — and it's merino/tencel, so it glows like nobody's business.

If you haven't seen Kraftie's blog, she's been doing some amazing spinning lately. I've been watching her progress with a sense of the magic of it, watching her turn beautiful roving into breathtaking yarn. And now she has gifted me with some.

No words adequately express the gift of handspun. I've been lucky enough to receive several treasured skeins from spinners around the net, and I always have a great reverence for the yarn. I have to find just the right project. Melinda's made a lovely shawl; Alyson's is being saved for mittens, once I get colorwork down; etc.

This is enough yarn for socks or a tiny shawl, and trim on another project (mittens?). I'll have to think about it. This yarn ROCKS. Thank you, Kraftie! And thanks so much for cheering my day. Yay.

If I had your address, I'd send you some handspun, too! Not enuff to knit your own blue man, though.

How is Kayla?

You're very welcome. You got the colors much better than when I tried to take pictures in the driveway of that yarn. Glad to hear things are going well.
