Phillippa Joads Hand Painted Shetland

I spun this 200 gms of top at 12:1 over 1" , twist-assist then chain-plied at 5.5:1 over around 12" to keep the colors relatively unmixed. This hank is about 100 yards:

This hank will be added to the knitted scarf as per Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer's "Morning Surf" scarf - 'though this is more like "Evening on Heath":
Some was combined with my softer ECX first-shear DroimAnUan hand spun to knit a pair of wrist warmers as per Samantha Thompson's Urban Weave wrist warmers. 

I used the rest, again combined with the white hand spin,  to make a 20"ish  X 20" Log Cabin weave which will form the decorative front for a cushion:

Got a lot of fun out of this.
