Violets and Marigolds - All Spun Up

Today I finished plying my Violets and Marigolds hand-dyed fibre. Now I've got just under 100g of lovely 2-plied merino lace. There was a little left over from one of the singles that I n-plied to fingering weight yarn. I will use it to knit one or two hexipuffs, I think.
Normally I am not a fan of fractal spinning because I prefer a solid colour rather than a mix of two or more. This is why I normally n-ply to keep the colour changes as they appeared when I dyed the fibre or yarn. These two skeins, however, look really good and certainly much better than I expected. They will be available in my Etsy shop eventually (opening will be in mid-August - I will let you know once I know more).
