Meadow Handspun

I couldn't resist, I really wanted to see how this roving would spin up. I'm still a pretty inexperienced spinner and am 100% self-taught, so I really have no idea how a roving is going to look once it's spun. That's a big part of the fun, it's always a surprise!

I'm very pleased with the results. Lovely pools of blues, greens and turquoises mellowed by the browns and beiges. I find the result to be soft and soothing. This skein is 100g and 310 yds. I've gotten pretty good at spinning light sport weight yarn. Perfect for another baby surprise jacket!

This is my most technically successful skein of handspun yet. It's quite evenly spun and balanced and I think that I did a better job of plying this time.

I may be a tad addicted...
