The yarn edition!
The fiber was a thank you gift from darling Rachel for some spinning I did for her. It was the first threeway Cupcake Fiber that arrived here, but not the first that I have spun. The yarn for our Ruth's Damask Panda was the first trio I spun. (That one is far more subtle than today's yarn.)
Here's a reminder of what the fiber looked like and the photo below is a reminder of what the singles looked like.
I did not spin even amounts of each color, but I never thought that would happen. Human error and all. For some reason, the greens were a tiny bit thicker than the other colors. No idea why. However, I am still THRILLED with the yardage and the finished yarn.
Joan told me to make sure that I used my plying template when it came time to turn the plied singles into 3-ply yarn. She mentioned that one single might want to wrap itself around the other two. I totally saw what she meant while I was spinning. Not while using my fabulous template, but when I had to stop spinning to move the yarn to a different hook and needed to restart the spinning.
Hopefully, you can see the three different colors are really there in the yarn. Pardon the photo. I'm having a day and in focus is just not something that's going to happen today.
Happy, our Rachel? ;^)
