Not usually my thing, but for some reason, this braid caught my eye way back when:
It’s just 4 ounces of a 75-25 BFL-silk blend from Midnight Purls. And no, I’m not usually a hot pink person. Maybe I was trying to get out of my comfort zone.
At any rate, once I got spinning, I just had to expand my comfort zone and make hot pink my thing, after all. I mean, who could resist such a bobbin?
All along, I was thinking, these colors would make some dead sexy socks. And so I was spinning toward sportweight n-ply. I used to try harder to get my handspun sock yarns more in the fingering-weight range, but after knitting up several pairs, I realized something. Handspun sportweight socks are just the ticket.
Anyways, I n-plied it, which cut up the crook of my lefthand pointer finger. Why does silk always do that to me? It does. But usually only when n-plying, and only when I’ve spun pretty fine.
300 yards of delightfully bright not-my-usual-colors handspun.
Happy Spinning, Friends!
