Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

In keeping to the dictum of Living My Delight, I decided I wasn't enjoying the blended merino and did enjoy this:

And what is this? It's Interlacements silk top spun thin and knit on size 3 needles. The predominant color in the roving is a fairly bright blue, but there are some warmer colors, including a lovely bronze gold. The idea I'm toying with is to spin long lengths of the different colors and Navajo ply them so that I create my own Noro type of color change. The garment intended for this yarn will be a tank top, with the bronze gold near the top and the blues along the bottom.

This particular sample was too loosely twisted. I gave it some rough rubbing and a halo blossomed across the surface. I believe a tighter twist will diminish that, but I'll need to use a smaller drive band to get this tight twist.

I've emptied the bobbin of the merino so I'm ready to get started on this right away.
