I see cranberry or poinsettia. Whatever - it's stunning.

Of course I love the blackberry that's not really blackberry.
Very impressed with the spun yarns. I guess I haven't checked the blog all week because I had missed the midweek posts. Can't wait to see the actual master at work!!

I shouldn't have looked, I shouldn't have looked, aaargh, there goes my yarn diet. My mother is calling today and I'll ask her if she'd mind forwarding a large-ish shipment from Wollmeise.
