From the wheel here's 275 yards of fingering-weight 2-ply I spun from Kate's merino/alpaca/silk roving. Margene and I both bought some at Three Wishes last Friday. Margene, who is much more organized than me, has a photo of the unspun roving here.

I'm really excited over the prospect of taking a dyeing class from Kate at the Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair. I'm such a transparent groupie when it comes to her hand-dyed rovings that the owner of Three Wishes sent me an email when she got a new shipment. I had to buy one of every colorway; wouldn't you?
