This week, I started a summery-colored braid of 60% merino, 40% bamboo from FatCatKnits in the Splash colorway.
I divided this braid in half and then stripped each half into random-width narrow strips (6 per each half), and then spun those into singles. I then plied those for a lovely, light fingering-weight yarn.
Roving: 4 oz of 60/40 merino/tencel roving in the "Splash" colorway from FatCatKnits.
Weight: Light fingering.
Yardage: 450 yards/4 oz.
I'm going to use this as one of two colors in my Andrea's Shawl by Kirsten Kapur. The other colorway I've chosen is from my Mythical Creatures club this year - Serpent - which I dyed myself a braid of on the same fiber base.
I've already started spinning the singles for that braid - more on that next week!
