Here's a candy striped cable-esque yarn that I am much more happy with. It's got the pizzazz the other one lacked. I want to eat it. Tomorrow I'm going to spin a companion skein to go with it, since this one only gave me about 7 yards.

News you can use: as soon as this year's tax refund arrives, I'm going to place a big roving order with Ashland Bay, so I'll have lots of high-quality, un-dyed spinning fibers in the store "soon", in addition to the batts & locks currently for sale. (I use the word "soon" loosely because I have no idea how long it will take the IRS to ship me my money, or A.B. to ship me my order.)
