Beautiful Fibers

I have been at my spinning wheel ever since my batts from Inglenook Fibers arrived.  I am off to Seattle on Saturday for a week and wanted to take some of my handspun yarn along so that I can knit while I'm on my trip.  I'd bring a spinning wheel if I could, but it's just too much of a hassle.  Here's my latest couple of skeins spun up from Macrina's beautiful batts.  Stripped down and ready to spin -- "Connemara Marble".
On the bobbin of my Majacraft Rose.
I then spun a bobbin of "Dancing Lawn 2" -- and forgot to take a picture.
I have one skein of "Connemara Marble" plied on itself (192 yards, 2.5 oz.) and one skein of "Connemara Marble" plied with "Dancing Lawn 2".  (189 yards, 2.6 oz.)  Both of these are really soft.  
Top quality fibers used in these batts and spun so easily.  These skeins will be combined with the 500 yard skein (mustard/chartreuse) in my last post. Haven't decided the project yet but I have some ideas.

What a good combo for plying. It will be fun to see what you knit from all this wonderment.
