Last minute Spinning

With a touch of OC tendencies and a type A personality, I couldn't leave the yarn alone. After filling the bobbin, I couldn't resist taking the spinning to completion and plying it up.

I present "Nighttime Sky" - handblended merino fibers in various shades found in the sky - over a base of midnight blue, there are shades from a bright blue, to a steel blue of an overcast day. To add some fun, there are slight hints of lavender as found during the twilight hours, and a sprinkling of firestar. The handblended merino was corespun over the top of a blue snarl spun commercial yarn and the resulting single was plied with shiny metallic to mimic the twinkling lights of the night time sky.

A closeup detailing the texture can be found at the shop - go check it out :)
