A Little Spinning

Yesterday was resting... Today was spinning...
I spun yummy merino roving that I hand-dyed in various tones of lapis lazuli, and emerald greens because I could not get the picture of this glorious peacock out of my mind.


I sat and spun my own peacock , soft and squishy, and so beautifully contrasted...


220 yards worsted of weight singles... Should I knit another baby sweater? This would make such a pretty Cerise...

Amazing! I planned on spinning one just like it, only with less colour changes, more mixed. And with more purple.

Beautiful!

Oh, I want it. I want that skein. I want it want it want it. So so pretty. Please do more and then send it to me so I can just put it on my work shelf and pet it in all it's prettiness and daydream about lovely lovely projects to make with it.
