If this yarn were ice cream the flavor would be?

Master’s degree complete. Check!

Married. Check!

Now we’re off on the honeymoon tomorrow. The honeymoon is not about knitting and spinning, but you won’t be able to tell that from looking at my luggage. I am packing:

  • My Louet Victoria portable spinning wheel. I love that it’s carry-on sized and that the bag has extra space to squeeze in essentials, like toothpaste and underwear.
  • Yarn and needles for a shawl
  • Yarn and needles for socks
  • Extra spinning fiber

We’re headed to Oregon. My indulgent husband has no problem with me taking a couple of days to go to Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, OR, June 21-23. He’s a keeper. Let me know if you’re going to be there. It would be fun to say hello to blog pals.

What with school and wedding planning there hasn’t been much time for fiber lately. I squeezed in a little plying the last few days and came out with this:

new yarn 2 new yarn

I wanted to correct my under-plying issue. I think I’m starting to get better.

This is a two-ply merino. I’ve lost the tag the fiber came with, so let’s just call it pretty.

It looks edible, like ice cream or a jellybean.

If this yarn were a flavor, what flavor would it be? Blueberry?

Sorry, no wedding shawl photos yet. I need to pry the photos off the cameras of my relatives. Soon, I promise. Soon.



  1. Holy cow, congrats on all fronts! I remember getting my Master’s and feeling on top of the world – ditto the getting married part! Have an amazing honeymoon! Oh, and I think blueberry and watermelon swirled sherbet would be perfect for the yarn!

  2. Congratulations! And have a wonderful time on your honeymoon! When I look at your yarn I think lime and blueberry sherbet. It’s 86 degrees here and so humid so a waffle cone filled with that would be heavenly!

  3. I too saw ‘blueberry’ as soon as the picture popped up! Maybe with a little refreshing mint, just a tad so not to overwhelm it, and maybe alternate spoonfuls as you eat it! Like your blog. Happy honeymooning.

  4. I was going to say – “marriage. check” is this all we’re getting? Can’t wait to see the bride (or at least her scarf). Congrats on your master degree.

  5. congratulations on all the achievements this spring – wow – how do you find time to spin? I don’t care what you call that yarn, it is absolutely beautiful!

  6. congratulation and all my best wishes for your life with your husband. I would love to see some pictures of you during this day wearing your beautiful dress and shawl. have a wonderful honeymoon

  7. Congratulations on both your marriage and degree! I’m terrible at naming things, so I’m not much help there. It is yummy looking yarn though.
