A Little Slice of Spring

I took yesterday's oh-so-snowy opportunity to finish spinning up January's HelloYarn Club Fiber:(See, with the snow I can get some okay pictures!)

This is 4 ounces of Verdant - a lovely Merino/Mohair blend. It was a joy to spin! I split the roving into 8 equal weight thin strips in the hopes of spinning consistently enough to maintain solid colorways when plied. Well, I mostly failed at that, but I'm super pleased with how the whole thing came out. This is about 390 yards! I have no idea how I managed to get such super yardage out of it.
I am in love with it! It's so spring, it's so fresh, it's so plush. Now what to do with it?

If I could I would just pick it off the screen! My fav colors and you did a wonderful job spinning it. I wish I were in this Club!
