Glacial green silk/Merino calling my name

Posted by Picasa This is the onesie (the green thing between the bags of fiber from Louet on my wheel) I started knitting for Hannah from yarn I spun last year from a bit of Glacial Green fiber from Louet. I had tried to make a spiral novelty yarn--but it just looks, well, poorly spun. Oh well. It is still soft and a great color of green. I'm knitting Hannah's onesie in a K2P2 ribbing for extra stretchiness for her belly--it is the most kissable belly you can imagine.

I dumped out my spinning basket to "pack for SOAR" (not to spin, no, I'm not looking for my oil bottle, I'm getting ready for SOAR--really).

I'm ignoring the little voice in my head that is saying, "you can't show up to SOAR without something handspun--even a little onesie" so that I can get some work done. Honestly.
Heebeejeebees (my ancient, I-can-get-everything-but-the-important-end-in-the litter-box-cat) needed to sit on all my spindles.
