I wanted to spin something different than I have before, so I pulled the most brightly-colored roving out of my stash, Dicentra Designs superwash merino top in a colorway called Aster.
But despite the colorway’s name, I couldn’t stop thinking of bright Violas as I spun this wonderful merino.
The resulting yarn is my thickest yet, a worsted-to-aran weight. About 3.5oz of merino fiber spun into 220 yards of 2-ply yarn.
Here’s to the hope of spring and brightly-colored flowers!
