Here is my latest yarn that I am so in love with! It started as this batt from Wooly Treasures. It is BFL, Alpalca and Bamboo. The singles:
All finished. It is 17wpi, 360 yards, navajo plied. It is probably the most consistent I have spun to date. I am thinking it will make a lovely pair of socks that I will knit up as soon as I finish some of the other projects I have on the needles currently.
Up Close:

Ooh I just love the colors. I am so pleased that it changed very little from the batt and that it did not get muddied.
I also recently dyed this. It is more Coopworth/Merino. I call it geranium. I am really thrilled with how it turned out. It was supposed to be pink and brown but somehow the brown turned green, but I love it all the same.
And I finished the socks I was making from the Superwash Merino from Spunky in the Dogwood colorway that I spun up. I love how the socks turned out. I did them toe up two at once on one circular, my favorite way to make socks.
They are definitely not identical but I love this yarn so much that it doesn't bother me one bit!
Up next, another project that went from the dyepot to FO in just a couple of weeks.
Have a fantastic weekend!
