Flower Shop Inferno

2 days ago I posted a finished Miss Winkle shawl in the colorway Flower Shop Inferno. One of the aspects of spinning that I find endlessly fascinating is that how a colorway looks in a yarn is so completely different from how a colorway looks in a fiber then spun into handspun yarn.

I began knitting a linen stitch cowl out of my handspun flower shop inferno colorway. It is beautiful and interesting. It is also completely different than the shawl I just finished. I love saturated variegated yarns. But I really must say, my heart belongs to handspun.
