Beautiful Yarn…

This is  just a quick post. I want to show off my latest yarn. This was spun on my Kromski Sonata.

The blend is 60% Merino and 40% Tencel. I love how it turned out. SO soft. And it spun up so easily.

I bought two braids on a spinning retreat in January. I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture of it before starting to spin…

There was no real plan while spinning it. I split the braids in half initially, but then I  just randomly split the sections as I spun. Some were thicker than others so my color repeats are varied.

That’s actually one of my favorite ways to treat a painted braid. I like the way the colors don’t line up in an even fashion. There is less pooling and give the knitted fabric a more organic look.

Now I just need to decide what to knit! I have something in mind, but I’m not sure there will be enough. I have 632 yards. The pattern I’m looking at calls for 710, but claims to be easily adjustable for a smaller version. I haven’t decided if I want to risk it yet.

But I’m sure whatever I use this for – it will be pretty!
