I finished spinning this a bit ago, but KnitCroBlo week delayed my posting it. Look: pretty handspun!

Soo…. I’m completely in love with this yarn. It’s soft and squishy and wonderful. I didn’t get as much yardage as I had hoped, but that’s alright. I’ll have enough for the project I’m intending to do with it (eventually), which is to knit it into the yoke (and hem) of a round yoked pullover. I’m thinking it’ll be super cute. Plus the colors: I love the colors.

I have four more ounces of this fiber, which I’m highly thrilled about. If you’re a spinner and you’ve never used CMF, ohmigod, GET SOME. It’s so soft and light and smooth. It drafts like butter and the colors are amazing. I got mine in a Ravelry destash, and I’m always trawling the ISO/Destash board on Ravelry for more (I’d order from CMF directly, but the shipping is really high–like $10 to ship 8oz).

Yes. Love this stuff.
