So, I"m not really all that sure about this stuff I've spun.  It's the Chocolate covered cherries colourway (merino) by Spunky Eclectic and a chocolate brown shetland that I got locally.  I'm just not sure about the way it looks.  I'd like some opinions as to what you guys think Smiley

Full shot:

So, basically what I'm debating is to finish spinning the shetland and ply it with two strands of the merino, or just navajo ply the merino.  I was thinking of making THIS with it.

Thanks for any advice y'all pass on to me!

I love it! I think it's unique- the pink is super vibrant but is toned down by the brown, and it looks really evenly spun.  Would it be too itchy for a cami though?

I love it!  If it's too itchy for something to wear, I think it'd make a great tote or felted handbag!  Very cool!

thanks everyone for your kind words!  In the end I just didn't like the way the shetland was feeling with this yarn, and I ended up just two plying it.  I'm much happier with the way that turned out.  I'll find something to make with the little bits of three ply with the shetland that I have.

When I've got some energy I'll post the pics of what I've got Smiley
