fuzzy

after recently being terribly jealous of kate's spinning efforts, and being the lucky recipient of generosity combined with a dose of right place/right time which netted me a smidgen over 100g of hand dyed merino fleece....

i whipped up this-
it's 173m of roughly DK weight yarn, i say roughly because i haven't spun in a good while, and was only very much a beginner then! and this was my first time trying merino, so it's a wee bit thick'n'thin lol (ignore the giant bit in the middle - that's just the end) rather pleased with how it came out though!
