Spinning accomplishment

So even though she won't get it until May, here's my Mom's birthday present.

It's EXACTLY 600 yards, which is precicely what she needed for the scarf she wants to make, and weighs in at a whopping 9.5 ounces. This is going to be one nice warm scarf! This is also the largest single skein I've spun so far. I'm quite impressed both with myself and with that jumbo flyer. It's really a great workhorse!

A lady on the knitty board had asked if I'd gotten in to my brown/white/rust striped roving. Some of it has gone in to this very yarn, but as Mom really didn't like the rust on its own, it's been blended. Here's a side-by side of before and after blending. It really makes the rust almost disappear and become part of a very nice brown.
