Ravellenic Gradient

I have spun 16 lots of yarn. This is my favorite.

The color gradient is perfect, and it is a fairly even 360 yards of heavy fingering. I Navajo plied onto my giant Bosworth spindle that I got at Rhinebeck last year. All 4.6 ounces fit!

I finished Sunday at 11:30 am. For a few hours I considered submitting the finished yarn to Rhinebeck. Then I decided that the yarn would shine better in a half-circle shawl that showcased the sunset colorway.

I cast on for Shattered Sun less than four hours after I finished plying. Yes, I washed it. Yes, it was (mostly) dry. Hey, the Olympics end in a week, I don’t have forever!

  1. it looks gorgeous!

    btw, if you are still having trouble with your wheel take-up, i thought of something else. the spring on my wheel eventually crapped out on me, so i replaced it with a hair elastic and it works like gangbusters now. just one more thing to check.
