When spinning this yarn, I was aiming for a "super thin yarn"...so it ended up about sport weight. A combination of my Louet and my patience means that most yarn ends up worsted to bulky, but I wanted something a little closer to sock yarn.
Mermaid transitions from red violet to lime green, with no repeat. I was trying to do something similar to Noro yarns, that have long color stretches that blend seamlessly.
Above, you can see it as a skein. I just want to stroke it and hold it and never actually knit it! Ever since I started spinning, I've had trouble actually breaking into a skein to knit. That means I have a lot of "decorative" skeins lying around.
Obligatory quarter shot! Gives an idea of the differences in thickness.
In knitting news, I am half of the way through a pair of socks and now trudging along diligently. The start of school and my new job means less sit-in-front-of-the-computer-and-knit time. I suppose that's good, since Netflix was running out of documentaries to watch.
