Inspired by an FT friend, I went upstairs to photograph my handspun yarn made from roving purchased from the silkworker. Carol Weymar does a lovely job of dyeing silk, as well as blending silk into romney wool batts. The wool/silk blend is what I ordered, in a vibrant colorway called "powerball". I was hoping this roving might make me lucky ;-)
Here's a photo of the yarn all spun up. There is no such thing as natural light in the Pacific Northwet, or maybe there is, but that light is gray. The best I could manage was to open up the Ott light and fire away. This photo is the closest to the beauty in real life:
The wool is a really deep navy, with shots of electric blue and purple silk shining brightly throughout. I haven't metered the yarn yet, but I am sure there is enough to make a lovely, drapey scarf.
