On the Bobbin: Moonlit Sea

I dyed 4 ounces of Superwash Merino roving different shades of blue and green, with the blue at one end and the green at the other. Here is the single after I finished spinning it. I spun the blue part first so the green is on the outside.

So far I've spun just under 2 ounces of it. I navajo plied the single to get a three ply yarn that maintains the same color placement. The yarn gradually changes from blue to green over the skein with no repeats.
Here is the finished yarn!If you'd like to buy it:

Halloween Memories Blog Carnival

I always liked trick or treating as a kid. It was a lot of fun to run from house to house wondering what goodies we'd get. I'd go with my sisters and when we got back we'd dump our bags out on the living room floor and trade candy with each other. I think the trading candy was as much fun as going out and getting it all.

This year I'm planning on going to a friends Halloween party! It should be fun, but I still don't know what to wear, probably something warm. I'm playing with the idea of something from Firefly, possibly Kaylee...
