Fiber Friday - TV Yarn

November is almost officially over, so I won't be flashing any more of my Noro stash at you for a while. Although I am still working on my Noro projects. The bag is almost finished being felted. I'll get it together and show you the shrinkage soon. The sweater is moving right along too. I'm into the second sleeve. But in between knitting, I've got to get some Christmas decorations up. We are staying home and having family over this year - a first for us. And at the end of my spinning class yesterday, the instructor gave us home work. I have to finish spinning some of the roving she gave us so we can try plying on a spindle next week.

But in the meantime, here is another yarn purchase from SAFF. This is TV yarn, aptly named since all the colors are named after TV shows. And of course it will eventually be knit in front of the TV. But I don't think that last bit had anything to do with the naming convention.
