I also have goodies to show! I entered the small little contest that Amy of Amyville fame had on her blog about the tv show LOST. This is what she sent me:

The yarns on the left are for my Ribbi Cardi (the colors are Autumn Peach & Orange Brandy - yum!). The dark yarn (color: chocolate truffle)on the right is for this. Both yarns are from the Peruvian Highland Wool Collection, but the dark one is chunky weight.

This yarn is going to be my first leap into yarn dyeing and I'm going to be making a Clapotis with it.
