I have a yarn!

Fiber is my April offering of Northbound Knitting's Fiber Club, Potted Pansies on Romney.

I love Romney so much. I haven't spun any for a while, so this was a real treat. I tried to divide the top colourwise to spin a 2-ply from light to dark, but splitting was kinda hard. No matter, the yarn turned out great anyways!
I have a tendency to overply and Romney gets ropey if you do that, so I tried to keep everything nice and loose.

226.1 m/247 yards
111 g/3.9 oz
14 WPI/fingering

Picture overload, cause handspun rocks!
