My first ball of handspun!

MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm - lovely blue!

This is 100g, approximately 125 yards of 'Ultramarine' merino singles, spun on my Lewis.

I actually finished it over a week ago, and have over half finished the project I'm making with it! Here's a swatch, where I was practising my cabling: I wanted to do a plait, and it looks so pretty.

Unfortunately the colour just doesn't come out properly. This is probably the closest-to-actual colour:

The merino was such a dream to spin, even if there are slubs. I'm certainly going to be spinning more of it in future (maybe more Ultramarine as I think I may be a teeny bit short!).
