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.
