My Brother is Awesome :-)

So I got a call last weekend and it was my brother who lives up in Brisbane.  He wanted to know whether 300grams of handspun would be a useful amount of yarn.  The answer was a resounding "Yes" and today I have just had a package come to my door and inside it was this:

Gorgeous coloured Merino handspun that is so beautifully soft to the touch and a soft brown colour.  It looks to ba about an 8ply.  I already have a vague idea of what I want to do with it.  The challenge will be to find a pattern or to make one up!

Thanks heaps little brother :-)

I think it is extra special when a non-knitter (muggle) gives a knitter something knitterly!!
I am sure you will make something lovely!!

Glad you like it Bones.

FTR, I can knit, having done some as a teenager, I just choose to do other things these days.

And the wool came from a stall at the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival, a town of 500 3hrs drive from Brisbane that swells to 14000 and spends the day doing all things pumpkin related.
