Okay, seriously???

Could you die?

I mean, really. Does this just make you swoon and fan yourself and want to ask Rhett to bring you a mint julep?

Is this among the more beautiful things you've seen this month? Seriously? Even with fairly shoddy spinning (and I'm not kidding myself here, I'm generally an above average spinner, but I started rushing for the last third of singles, so two are lovely and the third is shoddy, thereby throwing off the whole plying process as well.)

And every little glimmer of that sheen is just showing off how soft it is, too.

You should get to Mama this very instant. Actually, get there yesterday if you can, and get some of this stuff. It's her stunning 50% superwash merino/50% tencel (oh, yeah, did I mention that something that disquietingly beguiling is also machine wash and dry? Seriously? Kill me now!) and well beyond being super fun to spin - and feeling remarkably like really, really, really nice silk, it turns out this magnificently ravishing....

Gorgeous. I wouldn't bring it with me to Spin Night though. Eunny may try to take it. I may try to too. :)

I'm with Colleen, although, in my case, you should throw it westward. I could almost say it with a straight face, too, if there weren't drool on my chin. Beautiful! Congrats!

Since you admit it is below adverage work for you -- feel free to share. However, I of course dream that my BEST work could look that "bad."

Hugs and can't wait to see you on the cruise!!!

Wow! Beautiful yarn! There's nothing like the luster of the silken fibers - Tencel included. And the superwash merino just adds to the great spinning experience.
