Handspun Sushi!

Yesterday evening was lovely, the air was soft and sweet, and after all these weeks of rain it was paradise. I took my spinning will to the front porch, asat on the steps and spun.

I chose 2 rovings (one merino/ tencel, the other alpaca) in similar colors, but one with a warm hue, and the other with a cold. The result after plying today makes me think of a sushi platter with salmon, ginger, wasabe and a little bit of rice!3 delicious skeins!



Now what to do with my sushi yarn apart from staring at it?

So beautiful! A luxury neckwarmer in a simple design that let the yarn shine?

I would just keep it as is and LOOK at it. It's a feast for the eyes. It makes me happy just to look at those colors and they way they play together as they tuck into themselves. I say, leave it be.

AFTER staring at it for many days.....It would make a beutiful vest or lacy overshirt. A great soft scarf or neckwarmer
