And Some Booties, Too

My first attempt at a handspun single in a very nice merino/silk blend. Unfortunately the roving was not smooth enough throughout for me to spin an even single so I stopped early.

And then I sucked it up and tried dyeing it, with more than partial success (although it still wasn't really the color I was aiming for).

Perfect amount, weight, color and softness for some sweet little booties. Just need to add some snaps. The pattern is from Debbie Bliss' BabyKnits book (or some similar title).
