A Little Bit of Sunshine

Just a quick post ahead of WIP Wednesday tomorrow- I had to share my brand spanking new, hot off the wheel single ply! I wanted to try out another of the manos merino tops I bought, this time in a slow spun, thinner single ply, just to see if I could spin a thin, strong yarn, and to see if the soft blue/yellow colouring would look as nice as the Wildflower I’ve been working with.

What do you think? I absolutely love the result- especially how a little bit of green and occasional beige is created where the blue and yellow blends together. I have about 400g of this to play with, so I’m dreaming of finding a pattern for something special.

Know a great pattern that would be perfect? Your suggestions are most welcome. I haven’t measured the yarn yet, but I’m guessing it’s a light fingering/3ply weight.

Happy Knitting!
