Notes

Ashland Bay hollyberry plied with a solid salmon merino top fiber.

Left over pink merino was then plied on itself for a mini 28 grams skein.

I am much, much happier about this yarn than the previous strawberry sundae yarn I spun with Hollyberry only. It is about sport/fingering size, and since the colors vere pretty close (much closer than you’d guess by the picture) it doesn’t look too barber-pole-ish.
