Happiness comes Priority

Sorry for the lousy indoor pictures, as usual, but colors are pretty accurate, at least!

Yesterday I received a huge Priority Mail box from Beaverslide Dry Goods. I love them! Their customer service was excellent, their shipping was prompt, and their products are gorgeous. The five skeins of 90% merino/ 10% mohair are in colorway "Cutthroat Trout", a beautifully cranberry and salmon flecked yarn. It would make the perfect tweedy knitted blazer, like the one found on page 34. I spun up some of the "Thimbleberry" merino/mohair roving last night. The mohair blend is terrific for a beginner like me. The wirey mohair fibers almost spin themselves, but the resulting yarn is still soft! I need to learn to ply, pronto.
