Spinning and Roving!

Spun this alpaca/wool from Silversunalpaca's. I did it in a worsted weight consistency. From 20z. of roving I got @42 yards! I have no idea what to make from it. With so few yards I'm guessing a headband or maybe some small mitts? Any suggestions?
Thursday I get to visit Ricky at the Silver Sun Alpaca Ranch! So excited! Hmm, how many alpaca's can I fit in my car? or at least more roving!:)


Yesterday in the mail I received some awesome roving from Julie at Flawful Fiber. I ordered the one on the right which is called Butterflies in the Fields. She was a little late in shipping it so sent the other braid of roving along with my order. It's really pretty too and called Fresh Escape. I was soooo shocked she did this. I hadn't even noticed she was a little late! I pm'd her on Ravelry and told her how awesome she is! I just love the greens in them!:)
