Wow! I did it!

I am SO proud of myself.

I dyed it, I spun it, I plied it and here it is:

Ok, so I cheated a little, and it was spun from pencil roving but even so.. hey, for a beginner, it isn't bad, if I do say so myself
[insert big grin here]
I don't think it's clear in the pictures but there are subtle colour changes, deliberate ones, I might add, in the lavender part of the yarn. I think it is clearer in the roving. here's a picture of it in it's original form.

This is what it looked like before I plied it. The top bobbin holds the yarn spun from white pencil roving. The lavender stuff in the middle is the pencil roving that I dyed, and the lower bobbin holds the yarn spun from the lavender pencil roving.

Oh, and remember how I said that dyed some hand spun to use as ribbons on the Christmas presents. Here's a picture of a small skein that I dyed.

Ok, now back to that lavender/white yarn I am SO proud of.. what should I make with it? It's about 4 or 5ply thickness (that's fingering-sportweight for all you non-Aussies out there). Suggestions most welcome. :) Thanking you in anticipation of getting all those wonderful ideas!
The yarn looks gorgeous. I love the lavendar.
