After a couple of hours on Friday evening and a couple more on Saturday morning, I had half of it spun up.
This is superwash merino from Kristin at All Spun Up, and it is a dream to spin. I also love how the colors are working together. This is not a colorway I'd normally go for -- orange is probably least favorite color -- but something about the burnt orange next to blues and creams and rich chocolate brown just made me have to have it. I'm definitely going to be buying more from Kristin in the future. Her color sense is amazing; click over to her store to see. (Just make sure you leave some fiber for me!)
The Mister and I spent a good part of the weekend running errands for the house, including an IKEA trip yesterday (always fun) and a stop at Bed Bath & Beyond today. We still need to find a few items of furniture, but we now have a rug in the living room; a shelf holding up our TV in the bedroom; and a caddy holding our shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc. in the bathroom, among other things. For those of you who are interested, I've put up a little virtual house tour over on my Flickr. Just remember that we're still getting things together and organized, so please excuse the mess!
