This is it! The fiber I've been waiting for! Merino, bamboo and nylon, its called Panda from Ashland bay. My excellent friend Mim got it for me! Since I started knitting, I thought it would be great to make my own sock yarn (and maybe some for other sockers), and this stuff is soooo wonderful! I will be doing three plys with at least some of this, even though three ply can be so tedious! ...see the wad of dark fiber there at the bottom right?
That belongs with this. I traded Billie (a spinning/shepherdess friend) 8 ounces of the above for this alpaca/mohair blend she just got back from Spinderella's in Salt Lake. I've never sent fiber there (Shari at Morro has me rotten), but it looks like they do a good job!
And of course, the obligatory Joy picture :)) I absolutely love this baby girl!
We'll call this one 'bath time'.
