She's different from the rest of us, that Belle...

I'm quite excited about my latest spinning project. I'm doing a spinalong by my friend Kathryn, aka CCSmile2006. It's Beauty and the Beast themed, and I have a batt based on Belle's blue dress. It's so great.

I always loved Beauty and the Beast, and Belle was always my favorite princess because she was a reader. People give Disney movies a lot of flack for being less than great role models for girls, but I think Belle is a pretty decent one. She's independent, smart, brave, loves to read, imaginative, and doesn't judge people by appearances.

Since I'm spinning this for myself, I want it to be more on the practical side, than the artyarn side of the spectrum. This batt has loads of sparklies and half a dozen types of fiber, but I discovered something - I could separate the merino from the rest of the strands of fiber. I've separated this batt into two sections, and I'll be spinning them separately to ply together.
