When I saw The 100th Sheep’s new gradient roving I knew exactly how I wanted to see it spun up. From one end of the gradient to the other keeping the colors flowing into each other. This shawlette is the result. I spun the yarn at a ratio of 19:1 on my Schacht Reeves wheel and then chain piled it on the 16:1 ratio getting 20 wpi. This year has been full of challenges for everyone so here is a Ray of Sunshine in the hopes of a brighter day.
