All the kiddos and significant others were at the birthday gathering. My son brought and introduced his new girlfriend, Nova. And, lo and behold -- as plates were whisked away and we began to settle into conversation - gift number two: Nova pulls out her needles and begins to knit!

Recently out of the dye pot or off the wheel
Two easily space-dyed bits of roving. The bare wool roving was procured at a used bookstore when the owner sold me a spinning book, then asked me if I could identify some spinning related stuff he wanted to sell. I walked out the door with a book on spinning, and 18 ounces of wool roving for $8USD. The low price gave me complete freedom to play with color!

My first navajo ply off the bobbin. This is 12 wraps per inch, and was two bobbins of singles made into one skein. Merino roving, dyed in the pot, then spun.
