Ladybug Spinning

I've been spinning on my new Schacht Ladybug daily. I have Lizbeth and Rose right next to each other and I try to spin a little on each every day. It's interesting because I'm spinning thicker singles on the Suzie than I am on the Ladybug. I finished the second bobbin of singles of this BFL fibre on Sunday and started plying it Sunday night. I finished the plying Monday and gave the skein a bath. It's now dry and just gorgeous. I have 75 grams of BLF and it's 23 WPI. I haven't tested the YPP yet. I want to enter this skein into the "I made it on my Schacht" contest. I don't expect to win but I do think it will be fun. Better pictures of the skein are needed and I'll get DH to do that when he has a chance.
I ordered the Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles ages and ages ago. They finally arrived on Monday. I love the flexibility of the cables and it's really easy to screw on the tips. No key is needed. Now to test them out with some yarn. I'll probably do that this weekend when I have some time since I won't be going to the Purl this weekend.
I love the case so much I want to get another one in blue and use it for my Addi Clicks. I hate the case from the Clicks and this has two rows for needles so it will be perfect. A different colour and I'll know which needles are in which case.
