WIP Wednesday – Winter Twilight

Lately, we’ve been treated to some seriously beautiful sunsets. Wild purples and pinks with big puffy clouds, which is what I’ve tried to mimic in my new handspun.

I’ve used a base of beautiful mauve colored roving in 40% cashmere/40% alpaca/20% merino and wrapped it in a bright pink alpaca/silk with glass seed beads in light pink, gold, and fuschia. Spun slightly think and thin, I’ve tried to add the texture of those beautiful clouds that I had pictured in mind.

The spinning has actually been finished for this skein since taking the progress shot earlier today and I’m really excited to wash it and hang it up to dry. There will be shots of the finished yarn to share soon!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far and that you’re finding some time for craft.

Happy Wednesday all!
