Here's the latest skein of handspun. It's a periwinkle blue and lime green blend that may be Corriedale. This 2.6 oz skein has 380 yards in it. I hope to have the rest spun up soon. Click on the picture to get a closer look.
I was surprised how plying this single muted the original colors. I mean that in a good way. Both were pretty bright in the roving. (Scroll back to my post about Greencastle in early April and you'll see a picture of it.) I'm happy with the spring-y colors of this yarn.
I'm a color freak. I like spinning fiber with two or more colors in it. I'm beginning to get a better "eye" for buying color in roving. I've learn that if both colors are the same strength, the finished yarn may be a little "muddy" looking. It probably will not be as pretty as the original colors in the roving. Some that I've bought that I thought were way too bright are very pretty and more muted in the skein.
Visits to the chiropractor are helping with my neck and back problems. I hope to get back to knitting soon. In the meantime, it's spin, spin, spin.
