Speaking of Yarn...

I had entered two skeins of handspun yarn in the Mid State Fair.  One of them was a loose blend of white llama fiber and blue (indigo-dyed) Navajo-Churro wool, and the other was white Santa Cruz Island wool yarn.  Both two-ply.  The SCI yarn won a first place!  The judge wrote, "Nice work."
There they both are - the SCI yarn is all white, of course.  Funnily, about the llama/wool blend, the judge's comment was "Consistent spinning would go a long way toward making this yarn usable."  Does that mean I should throw it away as unusable?  No intention of doing that.  Has she/he never heard of "art yarn?" Lol!
