- Frank kinda got to be a chore for a while, because it was just constant working with Frank trying to get "enough" to finish my sweater......it seemed never ending.
- Gretta is lovely, soft, and an absolute delight to work with....but after spinning 14 ounces, one does get a bit tired of the same thing (esp. as I'm spinning for a sweater; I still have 3 more ounces left).
- The teeswater? This is not as pleasant as I had hoped, mostly because of the effort I had to go through to get it to a reasonable state in order to spin it (it had felted in shipping), but I'm determined to actually finish this project.

Lately, I've been spinning away on naturally colored fibers, like Frank, Gretta, and my Teeswater roving.
But, evern now and then, one needs a little bit of extra color to put some POP! in their lives.
This fiber is 4oz of Frabjous Fibers in their SPARKLE line (merino & angelina) -- the colourway is "Stained Glass".
I've spun up 3 bobbins of this, and will be creating a 3ply. I'm not wholly sure what it's destined to become, but, there will be enough for something small, like a hat, pair of fingerless mitts, or a small shawlette.
