Happy Easter, Happy Spring!

We’ve had a couple days of actual spring like weather recently. Today is a bit cooler and windy, but not cold, and sunnier than you can even imagine!

In honor of the holiday and the feel of spring, I pulled out a braid of dyeabolical polworth/silk top I had in my stash.

I decided I was going to spin it on support spindles in a much thicker than normal fashion. That took me a little over 24 hours. Once that was done, I decided to chain ply it for two reasons, the first being that I felt the color changes were so intense they should be preserved. The second being that I wanted a nice thick chunky yarn and this would be a quick way to achieve that. It is only 104 yards, but what can you expect with such a chunky yarn!
