2-Ply Merino Handspun

2-Ply Merino Handspun, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

I appear to have misplaced or thrown away the packaging the roving came in, but it's pencil roving from Knitting Arts. I couldn't really tell until I opened the package that the roving had 2 different colors side by side. That's why the 2-ply has some of the look of a cabled yarn. It's about 80 yards of a DK-ish to worsted-ish weight, depending on what WPI chart you ask. I'm planning on designing some little neckwarmer, cowl, or maybe a headband for this.

I love your experiments. This is really pretty, so cheerful, lively. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
