The last day

Today is Epiphany, the last day of the Christmas season.  Therefore, I thought the picture of the day should be one of my manger at home:

I also finished spinning one skein of Christmas yarn that I am making last night.  I am going to make mittens with it when the skeins are done (well, maybe the knitting will wait until later in the year).  I think I can squeak 3 or 4 skeins out of the fiber I have at home.  I am spinning it on a Schacht Ladybug with a ratio of 10 1/2:1.

Isn't it pretty?  The red and green are wool (don't know what kind) and the white is merino.  I am spinning silver tinsel fiber in with the merino.  I love the sparkles.
