I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Pink Cotton Candy Merino

I bought a pound of wool/bunny mix and also some white merino at Zeilingers in Frankenmuth. I decided I wanted to stretch it a little more so I would ply the singles from each together. But I thought the white merino might be a little too white plied with the vibrant pinks. So my friend Leah dyed it a soft shade of pink. It looks like cotton candy!

When plied together it gave me softer varigated shades of pink. I am very happy with the color. It spun up about 10 wpi, worsted weight. This is the softest yarn and I hope to make a sweater with it someday. Notice I say someday??? The project list is longer than what I can knit in a lifetime.

Oh, it is very pretty. I really like the soft varigated color of pink to.

Your handspun cotton candy is incredible!!! I look forward to seeing a swatch of it knitted up.
