Pat's Knitting and Quilting
July 19, 2012
A little bit of incongruity
I started with this incredible African Violet Fiber Parfait from Blue Mountain Handcrafts - it included Romney, BL, and BFL fleece, a mini batt, handcombed wool blend, merino top, faux cashmere, bamboo, silk and firestar - what an awesome fiber package!
I separated the colors and made these soft shimmery semi smooth batts
Spun regular 3 ply worsted weight
There is LOTS of sparkle in this yarn - difficult to capture it with my camera.

Such cool thumbs!
The only mod I made was to knit in a wonderful cashmere/silk lining
Love that gorgeous soft shiny coral surprise inside!
AND - finished my TdF sweater spinning
