Johnny Jump Ups

Spinning fat continues...

I've moved onto my "Johnny Jump Ups" superwash merino/bamboo roving from PortFiber. Port Fiber currently has a similar roving for sale, a bit more blues and less greens than what I'm spinning. I'm loving how this looks so far. I had initially recieved a 1oz sample of this roving in my Phat Fiber box and spun a 2ply DK weight. I loved how easily the roving drafted and how soft it felt, but was a bit unhappy with the finished yarn. I felt the two plys competed with one another colorwise and decided then, that when I spun the full sized roving I'd do a thick single.

Looking like about 12 - 14 wpi!
