I spun it as a single and then plied it using a pure silk thread, something I have never tried before.
There is something so satisfying about following the whole process through, from natural un-dyed fleece to a skein of your own 'captured sunlight' yarn.
Now I have to decide what to make with it. I played about with mixing it up with the last skein I finished a few weeks ago and I rather love the mix of colours.
I bought the book, Last-Minute Knitted Gifts after seeing the jumper that Amanda Soule knitted from it and I am wondering if I could get away with combining lots of stunning colours because of the simple shape. I think I will have to spin quite a bit more to make a jumper but it might be the ideal way to show off all that hard work - what do you think? Alternatively, I may just stick with another hat......
