Start wearing purple!

Here's my latest spinning project; a purple merino and silk mix. The darker colour is a purple merino and silk blend from Wingham, and I've plied it with a hyacinth coloured merino that I bought on eBay. I started this last week at Talybont show, and finished it this afternoon; all I need to do now is set the ply, and it'll be ready for knitting. It's incredibly soft, as you'd expect, and it's made a lovely variegated yarn - I hope it knits up nicely.
