Back from Vegas, Two New Yarns & Saturday Night Special!

So, we returned from Las Vegas early this morning. It was a fun trip, as always, and we both came back with a little money left over so that's always a good thing . . . I also was SUPER excited to check my email while there and find out I sold *3* yarns! WOOHOO!! It was a week without spinning and knitting so I'm anxious to get back to it . . . in the meantime, I have two new yarns that I actually finished last weekend, both are spun from SparkleFluff from maryjanesattic.etsy.com

First, Mimosas for Everyone handspun single ply yarn. On etsy here!

Then, we have I Heard it through the Grapevine handspun boucle plied with thread. This one isn't on etsy yet, but will be soon!

I'll also be joining in the Saturday Night Special Thread for tonight (April 28) on ETSY! My sale is as follows:
14% off all handspun yarns
21% off all HAND KNITS
28% off all Jewelry

Sale is good from 5pm-2am EST in my ETSY SHOP HERE! Please put "SNS" in notes to seller section and wait for an updated invoice.

What Was I Thinking??

First, I have decided to wait until May to feature other etsy sellers here. The next two weeks are just too busy and I really won't have much time to update. Starting in May, though, I will feature 1-2 new etsy sellers each week!

Now, to the Yarn!!

On Friday night, I finished "Blue Rasberry Icee" handspun boucle novelty art yarn. It is similar to "Bomb Pop" but this one has Romney locks spun in and is plied with blue thread:

On Saturday, I decided I would spin up "Mesa"--handdyed Merino wool from the Yarn Wench. I don't know exactly what I was thinking, (hence the name of the yarn) but I spun in Wensleydale locks in burgundy and orange and plied it with purple and burgundy thread. I also strung round orange/reddish sequins and square lavendar sequins on the thread. It actually turned out better than I thought it would, but I'm still not sure about it:

This is also a photo taken in much brighter sunlight than normal and I'm wondering if it actually looks any better than those taken in "regular" light:

These will be the last new yarns from me for about 2 weeks, but once May hits I'll be spinning up a storm!
