Looking for ideas - Got Any??



I really needed to have a bit of Springtime in my world today - this is my newest hand dyed "Chartreuse" alpaca fiber that has finally dried. The fiber comes from SilverHawk - a very lite silver long length alpaca boy of mine. I love the way the color turned out because his darker gray did not take the dye the same way so there is very tiny strands of a dark gray and darker chartreuse in the fiber - truely amazing..

I have already passed it thru my Patrick Green once and now I am deciding what I might do next - Any Suggestions??
I would love to hear your thoughts - I am brain mush

Hmm... I'm not strong on the suggestions front, but I have to say that color is absolutely beautiful, and the way it is lying in the basket reminds me of Romaine Lettuce (my favorite kind :) )

Your right while I was carding it all I could think of was a fresh green salad.

Monica you know me I will gladly send it your way - you would love how fast and even it drafts - I spun a bit on a top whorl and it was pure joy. Say the word and it can be going your way.
