Here is my most recent handspun! Freshly taken off the wheel. It’s All Spun Up’s summer spin along roving called “A Somewhat Seuss-ish Trout.. the inside and the out”. I broke down the roving into sections, some large and some small, then andean plied them together. Its 100% Polworth roving which makes the colors really pop and so soft to the touch. I ended up with 330yrds of fingering-sport weight yarn to play with and I have 2 other braids left to spin!!
I was really not loving all the barber poling while I was plying, it started to look too much like Christmas yarn but after it was skeined up I could tell that, that wasn’t so. Its a beautiful mix of aqua blue, green, cream, and red. I have no current plans for it but I am really interested to see how it knits up!
