Handspun Friday - SAL yarn-Sweet Wine

For the Extreme Plying SAL at Southern Cross Fiber group on Ravelry (which runs until the end of April) I made this yarn.
First the fiber: Sweet Wine, Corriedale, 3.9oz

SCF club February 2013-Corriedale-110gr-Sweet Wine

I devided Sweet Wine into halfs, and added 2oz Polwarth from SCF FAll/Winter 2012/2013 semi solids pack in pink.

I spun and chain plied each bump.

And then I 3-plied them together.

I've got 130yds of it. Then I had some left over of Sweet Wine, and the pink one. I chain plied it again and got 5yds of the green one, and 8yds of the pink one.

I really like how the double chain plied yarn looks. The green one reminds me of Pesto. Yum!

Last night it snowed again, but at the same time it's warm and thawing. I'm off to go outside with the pups to enjoy the snow as long as it lasts.

Beautiful!

I don't want to hear about snow... I'm already thinking about planting roses!
