My unknown fiber has been plied and is now soaking peacefully in Euclan:
So far I am not impressed:
The ply is too loose and the red is very prominent. I'm hoping after a soak something will make the two colors blend together a little better. I'm hoping for fuzz, or felt or something that I can love.
What I do love about the yarn is that there is lots of yardage. I don't have the number yet, but I was plying for-EVER. There's got to be enough to make some socks or mittens or a cowl. For the moment I'm going to hold judgement.
And the best part of my day today was getting mail. Look what I got today:
Woo hoo! It's my Tom Bihn bag! Yay! I was floating around on Ravelry one day and the ad for Tom Bihn bags popped up. The ad had a video attached to it and I was too smitten to click past it and the inevitable happened. This bag is made of hemp and recycled rubber - you would never have guessed it.
Beautiful! The bag is called 'Swift' and it's the smaller one since the big one is almost as big as a suitcase. This one is purse sized and I can use it as a purse if I like.
I'm off to rescue my soaking yarn and then get back to work on the Marin scarf.
