This Grafton batt was so gorgeous and warm. Now that it's spun the yarn is reminiscent of 60/70's appliances. Remember Harvest Gold and that icky brown? All it needs is some avocado. Going to have to wait a while to do the other half. It drafted very easily, colorfast. 1 3/4 oz, 150 yards, n-plied. I really hate n-ply but wanted to keep the colors. Some of the joins are loose but pretty good on the whole for the first time on the wheel. Soft enough for socks. Would recommend this fiber but not the color.
We're having a slightly warm day. Did a little weeding and mulching. Daffodils, hyacinth and primrose blooming. Pansies bulking up. Leaf buds out.
