When I first saw the Green Bananas colorway I fell in love -- then I started spinning it up. Eh. More like mint chocolate chip than green bananas, I thought. In fact, look at it on the bobbin:
So I wasn't all that excited to ply it up. I figured that I just wasn't going to like this yarn and that sometimes that happens. I'd live with it.
Then I plied it. . . whoa! All the great color combos I saw in the unspun fiber came back and looked even better then I remembered. The singles which looked so minty green to me became golden and warm. I guess this is a reminder that you never know what will happen when you spin up fiber until you actually see it completed.
Up next is more fiber from Spunky Eclectic -- Corrie in the Orchard colorway.
