Tour de Fleece 2013 #6

The Tour de Fleece is over and I have accomplished my goals.  Okay technically the last day is tomorrow but I'm busy tomorrow and wanted to make sure I got this done in time!

I plied up my yarn finally a couple of nights ago.  I tried so hard to get it all to fit on one bobbin, but my bobbins are just a bit too small for that, so the last of it had to go on a second bobbin.

It's not really a big deal, it's just a little bit annoying.  As this fibre was not superwash, it is feltable, so when skeining it up using my niddy noddy, I just felt the ends together to make one continuous strand.  No problems.

Here's a close up shot because it's so pretty (this picture is also currently the wallpaper on my phone).

I'm kinda thrilled with the yarn.  I wasn't sure at first how all of the colours would look all mashed together, but I think it totally works.  It really does kinda look like a big pile of colourful leaves, the kind that you just want to dive right into, consequences be damned!  I'm not sure what this will be yet, but for now I'm quite happy to put it in my yarn cabinet with the others so I can look at how pretty it is.

As a side note, all of the pictures in this post were taken and edited with the Galaxy S4, no extra apps required.  That simple fact means that blogging will be much easier as the pictures it takes seem to be just as good as the one my camera takes.  And finding my camera, taking the pictures, plugging in the camera, uploading the pictures, and then editing them is just SO much work.  First world problems, am I right?
