Kermit the Frog and Spam

Last night I plied the rainbow colored singles that I spun over the weekend. I'm really happy with the way they came out and you can see that I kept the warm colors and the cool colors generally separated - they blend together with some greener tones. When I look at them, I keep singing Rainbow Connection from Kermit the Frog. I have 5 ounces total and I'm not sure what I'll do with them at this point. The fiber is a Columbia lamb's wool and its so soft, with a little bit of shine to it. I had originally thought of doing a pair of fingerless mitts for myself, but I have enough to do a pair of socks, but they don't have any mohair in them and I'm afraid I might wear them out too fast. I know that whatever I do I will be amused by the colors changing constantly. I'm fascinated by just looking at the skeins of yarn, but then we've already discussed that I'm easily amused.

Yesterday I took the word verification thing off the comments because my Mom had mentioned that she hadn't been able to comment since I put it on and I had noticed that there was a decline in the number of commenters. Well, wouldn't you know it, I got spammed. Twice. I think I'll wait and see what happens, but I might have to start moderating comments. I don't know. Right now I don't even want to think about it. Caleb got sick over the weekend and while he bounced back quickly, he shared the germs so now I'm sick. Nothing like trying to sleep when your sinuses are so full your entire face hurts. Add the cat serenading me for no apparent reason at 12:30 and again at 3:15 (that's when I got out the water bottle) and it was a fun night.

Ohhh! Love the colors of that yarn, rainbow, but soft.

You know, I think blogger has worse probs with spam, I've never had an issue on Typepad, and I hear blogger people complaining all the time.

I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well. I woke up with the same thing this morning, but I have no Caleb to blame it on. Perhaps Garrett had something to do with it...

Beautiful yarn Melanie! Sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Nasty bug going around. I hope you feel better soon.

Are you sure you don't want me to include the cat in the prizes?

Aww, I hope you feel better soon. Sniff some Vapo-Rub. I also adore that yarn. It's so pretty! I just stared at the picture for a few minutes, so I must be easily amused, too. Also, if I may ask, how exactly did you change the Everyday Cardi sleeves? Just cast on more stitches and decrease less? I'm currently working on the front of that sweater, and didn't realize it had problems. :) Thanks!

The handspun is *gorgeous*! And "Rainbow Connection", sung by Kermit of course, is my absolute favorite. :)
