FO: Handspun - Memories

I'm always too excited to start spinning to take a picture of the fiber beforehand. I really should because it changes so much. Lucky for me, Becoming Art had a picture on their site (which it looks like they sold so it's not currently there anymore.

I got this fiber at Stitches West, either one or two years ago...It's 80% merino and 20% silk - sooo soft (it's possible I may say this about all the fiber I spin). 

Lovely night picture which does not do the fiber justice...

I loved spinning this up. The colors were gorgeous, the muted pinks and purples.

I divided the fiber in half and spun two singles.

Then I plied the two singles together.

The 3.5 oz of fiber gave me about 360 yards of a fingering weight yarn.

Now what to make with it?
