Completed Contest

The husband brought home some cold germs last week and lovingly shared them with me so my knitting and spinning and general doing anything motivation has been really, ultra low. I started my October Vesper KAL socks but haven't been bothered enough to take a photo of them yet, I am working on my sweater but it doesn't look like it yet. All these things add up to nothing interesting to show here.
Yesterday the sun was actually shining and I actually felt motivated to do something but instead of taking all the wonderful pictures I've been planning and posting them here, I cleaned the house. Don't get me wrong, it needed it but it does not make for good blog fodder.
Instead I might as well share the yarn I spun for the Blog Contest from my 400th post. My lovely winner; Jenna said she would like a 2-ply sport weight to knit a shawlette. I did my best to oblige.

I got close to 400 yards and even though it plumped a little when washed, I think she should still have about 350 yards or more for her shawl. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I hope she loves it.

The colors were soft and subtle enough that where they barberpoled, it still looks soft and lovely and subtle. I definitely think I need to look for Falkland to spin more often.
