Years ago when I started spinning. I bought a 2 ounce braid of gold/yellow/red alpaca fiber from Fleece Artist. I figured since I was just learning, it was ok to buy some small braids and just learn on them. The finished yarn reminds me a bit of a roll of Life Savers candy. or maybe a bowl of Froot Loops?
I spun a small skein of Navajo 3-ply yarn and gave it to my Mom to knit something with.
Well, she decided to make a little pair of mittens and hold onto them until someday when a little grandkid came along. well BINGO! There IS a cute little grandkid, and now she is going to have warm little fingers all winter. They are still a little bit too big, but that's ok.
They're woolly and warm, and knit by her Grandma, and that's all that matters
