The blending of the pink

Would you look at that? Surprisingly, I managed to finish spinning and plying my very pink skein of yarn. I want to tell you that this is fingering to sport weight yarn. But when I say that, I mean that it is a gradient. Starts off fingering weight, ends sport weight. Well, you can’t win ’em all! However, I do think it is a lovely skein. I enjoy seeing how the 3 ply yarn changes tones if even one of the plies moves into a new color.

This was a surprisingly fast spin, and a very fun ply. I am actually considering making something out of this one, and fairly soon. That means, I may even start knitting again. Will wonders never cease?! This skein turned out to be 230 yards.

My next spin? Another very spring like color, another braid that should spin fairly quickly.

  1. I love these colours! I’m just starting spinning, so my yarn doesn’t turn out quite so lovely yet. I was wondering, and you’ve probably written this in earlier posts, where do you get your fiber?
