When Kristin posted this merino/silk as the next Allspunup spinalong, i jumped at the chance to grab one. my instincts were to take all of the fibers and run but i settled upon one because i knew that i wouldn't know what to do with the finished yarn.
The fiber wanted to be singles. i divided the braid lengthwise into 4 skinnier strips for short color repeats. i spun it short-forward draw and soaked and thwacked to finish.
i ended up with 480yds/120g of fingering-ish weight singles.
the yarn was so gorgeously soft that i had to use it right away. over the weekend i started a critron shawl (rav). of course, i'm not going to have enough yarn. i knew i should've bought more than one. soon it'll be time to get creative in figuring out how to finish it.
