Mini Skein

My first mini skein that I will actually want to knit with.   I ended up with 72 yards of a beautiful yarn.  It is still a bit fluffy at a couple of points, but this definitely defines a turning point in my spinning skills.  I received a sample (1.5 oz) as part of a gift trade through Ravelry from my birthday “twin”.  This is Ashland Bay Colonial, color: Burgundy.  Described as follows:  This fiber is very similar to Corriedale. It felts well and is available in color blends that are incredibly beautiful: Red, Green, Blue, Teal, Purple, Navy, Burgundy, Dark Green, Blue Green, Northern Lights, Agate, Mahogany.

I love the jewel tones in the fiber:

And it spun up beautifully:
