Happy Mother's Day!

First, here's a picture of a fat cat belly. He's a little melty in this shot.

And this is the first Merino that I've successfully spun. It was some of the samples that came from Northern Lights Fiber. The girls couldn't use it to needle felt because it wouldn't felt, so I decided to try again to spin it. It worked. Not sure how much fiber I started with, but it ended up being 72 yards of a fingering weight 3 ply - navaho plied. It's soft and quite nice for a first try. I'm still not great at merino, but at least now I know it's possible.

Beautiful spinning. Smart of you to Navaho ply it to save the colors.

I love the melty kitty too.
