second and third yarn of the month

yarn and more yarn
some interesting techniques this time, not just straight spinning - On the left, I broke out the hand cards on the pink fiber, to add some glitter, and a few notes of hot pink and lavender among the dusty rose merino.  On the right, the purple ply is core spun onto a superwash merino/nylon single I had lying around, once I realized the purple fiber was far too short to spin normally. (To be fair, it was sold as fiber for felting, but it was gorgeous!)

They are both two plies of wool, with a third ply - the same hot pink silk single. Try saying that three times fast.

7 more to go, though I may have one more done tomorrow...
