Ginny is an artist when it comes to dyeing fiber. I love her work. It's so much fun to spin her colorways. One of which is Day's End Dawson. I love browns, and blues together. This one I've got from her Etsy store.

I've got 490yds of 2-ply yarn. I spun it from brown to the blueish part, with a little shawl in mind (pattern not yet specified).

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Love! I think this yarn would work very well for a modern shawl.

Beautiful yarn you spun again! Can't wait to see the shawl.

Wow! I like how you kept the brown part together and I think it would make a nice accent trim at the edge of a shawlette.

I randomly dyed some fibre in a very similar colourway! Now you're making me want to spin it, your yarn came out lovely.
