The other day I was badly coveting the cheerful marled yarn in Cara's current Picture of the Week. By a happy synchronicity, today not so much, thanks to my amazing S2K orphan swap pal, Jen of Fiber in the Hands of an Angry Spinner. (The reds are strangely too orange-salmon here, they're actually cherry pink.)
Thank you, Jen – I heart cheerful marled yarn! Also in the package were a nice note, a set of Jen's signature rainbow stitch markers, and two fiber samples that have my fingers twitching.
That's cream Shetland from a neighbor's beast and mahogany alpaca from Jen's own Fudgy the alpaca. Teehee. I've never spun Shetland or alpaca before, much less alpaca from a known, named source. I'm looking forward to giving them a spin.
