Handspun Friday - Paris

This is the first time I've spun fiber from this vendor and the fiber spun up very well and the finished yarn is nice and soft. I loved how the colors looked in the roving but I do think that the colors got a little muddled in the finished yarn.

The odd thing is that the photos of the yarn look pretty accurate for color on my monitor and so do the colors in the photo of the roving below. The final yarn is very nice though. I look forward to knitting it up into something wonderful.

Gorgeous! There is so much color going on in it and yet it is understated. I cant wait to see what it looks like knit!

In this case I think the finished yarn looks even prettier than the fiber.

The roving has a heather type look. I really like the multitude of colors.
