I finally spun that milk fiber into a more substantial-sized skein, and it looks really pretty. It seemed like a good fiber for lace to me, so I decided to spin a fine 2-ply with it. Here it is pictured with two skeins of navajo-plyed yarn, one BFL wool and one organic merino wool:

I have also been plugging away at my hand-spun shawl:

But the biggest project I’ve been working on that is taking up the most of my time is still in the top-secret planning stage. Here is a hint (organic merino handspun yarn in a variety of styles and sizes):

Any guesses on what those are all about? I’d love to hear them!
