Been a rough week for the fiber. First spent many hours trying to swatch the blue yarn recently spun. Too fuzzy to show any pattern, might as well resign itself to being garter or stockinette. Then had these rovings, all pretty alone. Why not combine them?

The resulting yarn was problematic, the swatch resembled pulsating intestines. Too awful to post and a picture could never do it justice. So just spun one by itself, usual 3 ply. Still a somewhat intestinal mauve. The purple and pink were too close in tone (value?) and did a mind meld. But will make ok socks. The sun finally came out but not in time for a roving shot, little dark, sorry.
