Chocolate & raspberries
All right, I take back everything negative I ever said about pink. It's a fine color.Fiber: Freckle Face Fibers 100% Merino, "Razzleberry Pie"2 plyapprox. 285 yards92 gramsBea asked me to do some spinning for her in exchange for some of her lovely handmade things, and of course I happily agreed. She was
maddeningly delightfully vague about how she wanted the wool to be spun, so in the end, I just let the fiber tell me what thickness it wanted to be.Of course, I had more singles left over than I would have liked. (Drat! Why does that happen when I'm spinning for someone else?) I decided to Navajo ply the leftovers, so Bea also got this mini skein.In return, Bea presented me with this treasure trove of handmade goodness.That's merino roving she dyed herself, her own YarnPig 100% superwash merino sock yarn ("Painted Desert" colorway), and one of her plum velveteen project bags. Really, I feel like I won the lottery. She showed me three more of her rovings, and all I can say is that I hope she puts them up for sale in her shop. They are so beautiful that it's hard to believe they're the result of her first attempt at dyeing fiber.Thanks again, Bea!
