Handspun Friday - Sugared Beets

Pinks and purples are not really "my" colors, but this fiber's blend of all those colors just spoke to me, very loud indeed. It made me happy to spin this fiber in heavier yarn as usual, which came out as worsted weight yarn. I'm hoping it will be enough for a hat, even if I have to use the chain plied left over to finish it.

fiber: FatCatKnits Merino, 4oz, colorway Sugared Beets
FCK-Sugared Beets-Merino-4oz

yarn: 3-ply, 3.7oz, 151yds, plus 19.5yds chain plied from left over singles

That should be more than enough for a hat! I've squeezed one out of 95 yards of worsted before.
