Obviously, there was only one thing for it and that was to commission my very own braid. Now, Marianne also twitters so I sent her a message and, despite having her arm in plaster she dyed me the most lovely twinkle.
It is beautiful and soft and will spin an absolute treat. Sadly, it needs to wait until I have cleared some bobbins.
Marianne is multi talented and all her yarns/fibres come with a special present. Here is mine. I now have three different ones, each matches the yarn it came with and it is delightful to receive such a lovely gift.
