fifty-second skein

This yarn is spun from Frabjous Fibers BFL top in the colour stained glass, but with the orange sections removed. You can see behind the ball of yarn there are balls of roving torn into thin strips ready to spin, and these contain the orange sections still.

While I respect the vision of dye artists and understand that the orange is supposed to give the other, darker, colours a lift, the intended recipient of this yarn asked for no orange.

So, no orange it is. I understand. The last time I wore orange I was tying granny knots in my Brownie scarf. The orange sections are saved for another day and for someone who likes that sort of thing.

I spun at the usual gauge and then cabled and cabled the yarn back on itself.
