I've been Spinning...

I'm not really sure why, but I have not been spinning much - maybe my brain thinks winter=knitting, spring=spinning? But last week I spun up the singles from a lovely braid of Romney wool roving from Feeling Sheepish in all sorts of blues - her "Magpie" colorway.

I finished plying them on Monday. I was a bit worried that I had overlplied the singles, but after a wash and thwack, the yarn was perfectly balanced.

I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I have approximately 210 yards of worsted weight 3 ply.

Beautiful! I love how all the different shades of blue interplay.
