What I'm spinning now

As I mentioned in a previous post my current spinning is using batts from Laal Bear.
They are rather bright and have the name Happy Hippy:)
This fibre is a mix of mohair, merino and trilobal nylon and spins beautifully. I love the way the colours flow onto the bobbin as I spin.

Isn't it lush? Like a cloud of silk

A close up of the bobbin although a little blurred. I've now almost filled the first bobbin.
Can you tell I like this fibre?

The wool looks absolutely gorgeous-very enchanting. I just learned to spin via drop spindle and love it!! I can't wait to learn on a wheel hopefully someday VERY soon.

Oh but this is lovely....mmmmmm..and I can *see* how soft and yummy it is even from my screen...

Oh, and being a new disciple to the Knit Revolution..I found myself in slack-jawed delight at the yarn loveliness over at Laal Bear's blog...

....when I know how to knit more than a pot-holder, I'll be sure to visit it again...:)
