Handspun Friday - Downton

Today's yarn is made from Greenwood Fiberworks fiber club May 2012, and some SCF Fiber Club February 2012 semi solids "Citrus Splash".

The bases are Polwarth and organic Merino (semi solids). I should have spun up the semi solids in mini skeins (each color is 1oz), and knit some colorwork, but it's too late now.

I made a true 3ply yarn, 407yds, 6oz.

It's quite soft, and squishy. I made a swatch, to see how it would knit up. I like it. I still don't know what I'll knit with it eventually.

I'm not going to wish you a wonderful weekend just yet, because I'll be back tomorrow with a special post. :o)

Until then, be well.
