A Little Handspun Yarn
One of the nicest things about fall and winter is that once the garden is done, then I have time to sit at the wheel and spin some yarn.
Like this stuff. I spun it over Thanksgiving. It's a 3 ply superwash wool yarn. I started with three colors of my hand dyed roving [deep blues, vineyard, old brass]. It's mostly blues, but it's got some glorious golds, rust, eggplant and russet as well.
I think there are more than 9 ounces of the finished yarn. Enough for a nice warm handwoven shawl.
I get all happy just looking at it.
