Dude, Where's My Niddy Noddy?

Is that it, under 1192 yards of gorgeous, two ply, pinky goodness? That's right, almost 1200 yards of this glorious stuff is now mine, all mine. Any ideas what to do with it? Its laceweight, and no, I just spun it without a definite plan. I'm kinda thinking a wrap of somekind so if any of you have any ideas, let me know. Yesterday in the comments, someone asked about my spinning wheel. That's Arwen. She is a Majacraft Rose. I chose her over the Susie because the Rose comes with the lace flyer as well as the standard delta flyer and she has both the regular and the high speed whorl. I prefer the looks of the spoked drive wheel to the solid wheel of the Susie, plus Woodland Woolworks was having a really great sale on Majacraft wheels. As far as performance, I don't think there is too much difference between the Susie and the Rose. My wonderful husband, Mickael, got her for me for Christmas and I've been very happy with her. I haven't been doing too much knitting lately. I've got a couple of projects going though. One is a hooded cardie, done in black mohair (imagine something black and fuzzy and I don't even have to post a picture). The other is a shawl, that is having itself a little time out. Also, there is a surprise project that I can't post about until Monday. I guess now I should finish my current spindle spinning project which will be socks. More tomorrow.....

I can't believe you got almost 1200 yards on one bobbin! Your yarn is gorgeous. It would be _perfect_ for a knitted lace shawl. I tend to like the faroese style since they sit on the shoulders so nicely, but with that much yardage you have lots of options (except maybe for a square shawl -- that would take at least 2000 yards).

My Majacraft Rose is from Woodland Woolworks, too. Got a great deal on it at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival a couple years ago. Makes a great traveling wheel. Not quite as compact as an Ashford Joy, but good enough to suit me. I got a Woolee Winder for it last autumn, and am now in Spinner's Heaven...

Does the pretty pink stuff have a slight purple cast or is that the light playing tricks? from Caleb's Grandmother

This is going to sound like a stupid question, but how do you know how many yards are on your niddy noddy?

What a gorgeous color. Did you dye it or did it come that way?

Couldn't find a way to email you directly about the Rose after seeing your posts on the Spindlers List. Would you mind contacting me via email at fulvialuciano@yahoo.com? Thanks, Melanie.
