Mischief managed

I promised some very nice ladies that I would post pics of my first skein tonight, and while it's technically after midnight now, I'm not in bed yet so I'm calling it good!  Without further preamble here is my very first skein:
206 yards of smooshy merino goodness poured off my wheel on Saturday afternoon!  I was at a party with good company and had a great deal of "down" time, so I made the most of it and finished skein number two as well:
322 yards of heavy lace weight yarn spun from batts containing merino wool, camel, silk and a tiny bit of firestar.  I actually designed this colorway for a contest on the Corgi Hill Farms Ravelry group, and after it was released I just had to buy some of it!  I called it marmalade on toast, and it turned out quite a bit more decadent than any toast I've ever had.
So there you have it; two skeins down and fifty to go.  Wish me luck because I'm going to need it!


  1. I loved the Marmalade On Toast in person! I'm kind of sad it didn't occur to me to feel it up.

  2. I wanna see the Marmalade On Toast!!
