"Enchanted"

When I first received my two braids for the All Spun Up Ravelry SAL for Feb/Mar I was more happy with the base than the colors. I didn't dislike the colors, they just didn't seem to be intense enough with the green,(not much for pastels) The purple was ok ....shame on me....

Shouldn't judge a book by it's cover huh! Also, one should not answer a plea for destashing to help someone for a sweater....yeah...shame on me again!

This fiber was awesome to spin! My singles were 24wpi, I kid you not!!
ASU Feb/Mar SAL
All too quickly the spin ended. Look up, um...don't those colors look intense to you, not washed out...yeah, shame on me again ;)

I knew while spinning the singles, it would be navajo plied. I would sacrifice yardage as my singles are not super thin, but to me it could be plied no other way.

I'm so bummed I destashed the other braid!

Varying intensities of the purples and greens...love!!

I'm thinking this will stripe up when knitted too...not sure if a cowl or hat...it's so soft and squishy...might be a cowl, I can always knit a contrasting hat...or hey, if I move to the cold, they'll be mittens...or not...for now, I'll just pet it and call it George!
