It turned out really well! I wish I knew how to spin yarn, but it looks really complicated to me :)

It really is gorgeous, and you're plying is perfect.
Don't knit it up, just put it in a nice bowl on the table and admire it. :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Looking at pictures of your yarn again just makes me want some of my own! It's so gorgeous & it just begs to be knitted up.
