Hello Yarn Fiber Club (begged)
4.o oz, yardage... um 200?
Before I was stricken, I spun this from the fold. Probably not an orthodox choice, but I found it easier to spin a fine(r) yarn from a large diameter top that way. The color transitions are long and have that wonderful quality of being somewhat barber-poled... I think you can see here a green bit with a brown bit... that makes a long stretch of green/brown yarn. Yummy. A kindly raveler sold this 4 oz, and another kindly raveler sold me a second 4 oz when I realized I had half the yardage I expected. The kindness of knitters to the rescue! If I have energy enough to be decisive, I will cast on either a Baktus or Feather & Fan Comfort Shawl this evening.
My lovely goodies also arrived from my swap partner:

And there is also a cute little sweater that I finally found a moment to get buttons onto:
Babies grow fast, so it's good to get this finished a few months before my friend is due!
