Late for Saint Patty

Okay, this is more than a little late for St. Patrick's Day, but inspired by Gene Black's example I had to try spinning up a little of the green and gold.

Shamrock green and a touch o' the gold

And no, that little tag that says $7 does not mean this skein is for sale. Whenever I can I reattach the fibre vendor's tag to the skein so that I can remember the fibre content and the source. It's incredible how fast I can forget such things otherwise! This was 2oz of "local wool" hand dyed by HummingBeeFarm. It blows my mind how far this spinning technique can take 2oz of yarn! This is a large and lofty yet lightweight skein.

All those glorious greens! I want to share them with my yard in hopes that they try to mimic the colors. :)

So pretty! I've recently started spinning, too. Isn't it wonderfully relaxing?
