This is my own (non-qualifying) go at the handspinner spring competition. The brief is to make yarn inspired by the cherry blossom photo provided. There's a good prize on offer, so please have a go. More information is in the March newsletter.
I think this is my fattest yarn since my very first go at spinning, which was not intentionally fat.
I could picture those colours in a squishy arty scarf, made on large needles - cool in spring and warm in winter.
The result is looking a little under-plied. I didn't want a very spirally plied effect, so was afraid to go too far. It's not set yet, I'm hoping it'll fluff up a little more after a wash.
