Cotton Candy Yarn!

I finished up the 3 ply yarn from my Cotton Candy batts last night (from Franquemont Fibers - the link's in the sidebar). I have 240 yards of it. Since one bobbin ran out early (of course), I decided to two ply the remaining two bobbins so I'll actually get two different yarns out of this. I have no clue what I'll do with it, I'm waiting to wash this with the two ply so once they're washed I'll be able to see more about the yarn's true nature. (For non spinners, when you wash a finished yarn it both sets the twist and causes the fibers to bloom and relax. You don't really know how your yarn will look until it's washed.)

Not too much is going on around here today. Caleb got the flu, but luckily we caught it early enough that the Tamiflu medicine should help him feel better soon. In the meantime, we're just going to have a lazy day with lots of fluids.

Beautiful as always - it truly does look like cotton candy! A shawl, perhaps? A baby shawl, blanket? A christening shawl for a little girl? A prayer shawl for a very, VERY feminine woman?
