Saturday spinning update: gradient bliss

This week I managed to chain ply the first 3 oz braid of my gradient BFL/silk from Turtlepurl. It started out as two matching braids that can be spun into gradient yarn. I’ve chosen to chain ply each braid.

I got a whopping 425 yards of 3 ply in about 90g, which I’m very happy with. You can see here that I’ve also started to spin up the second braid – might as well get it all done at once.

Since I love the first skein so much, here it is in a variety of forms so that you can appreciate its beauty:

The shine from the silk is ridiculous. It’s wonderful stuff.

I’m not sure what’s next, but I have some Romney from Into The Whirled that’s been sitting on my largest Golding spindle since July, and I probably really should look into finishing that, right?
