YPF-Another Friends Edition

I have tried so many times to capture this skein of yarn. It's gorgeous and was a gift from Shannon when we met up for SAFF.

Love all the colors! It's a 3 ply and I still don't know what it wants to become...maybe a cowl, but not socks. I just can't do that! So here it sits, taunting me.
Pretty Poison

Sadly, my pictures aren't the best, but you get the idea.
Love the colors!
I remember when she was just using a spindle. I've always admired her lovely spinning and when she gave me this I almost had a heart attack (but I hid it well LOL!)
:)
It's still green round here, partially, but cold, and I love it.

Lucky you! Shannon's spinning is incredible. Is it wrong to be a wee bit jealous? ;)
