This is the last spinning project I finished over the Christmas Holiday. It is a three ply super wash merino.
After I finished plying this yarn, I decided that I didn't want to put off learning to chain ply any more. The roving seemed to have strong colors and long repeats of those colors. I was hoping that would translate a little better to the finished yarn. I was really hoping for more of a self striping kind of effect. Instead, my uneven division of fiber and uneven spinning resulted in more of a barber pole effect.
I do like the yarn. It is really soft and I'd definitely buy more fiber from dkKnits. I didn't end up with much yardage at all though, so I'm not sure what I'll knit. I've got another project I'm working on right now, so I'll throw this in a basket and let in marinate for a while.
