ok first off dont laugh at my ball.... this was the first time i have EVER done this....i splurged on myself a few weeks ago and bought this at my local yarn shop.... i am going to knit it up as a scarf and who only knows what else. still waiting on my best buddy to figure out what design we are going to do on them... btw she got some yarn like this but a different color too....it is hand dyed yarn made by Araucania called Aysen....70% merino wool/ 20% alpaca/ 10% silk..... very soft....the color i chose has blues, greens, browns and beige in it....they at the yarn shop had one knit up in a long scarf with a lil bit of each color the sold in it so you could see what it looks like knitted and i fell in love with this color.... you can see what color melanie has by checking out her blog here
