I Spun Something?

I spun some yarn? I actually worked on this for a while, which it really shouldn't have, as it was less than 3 ounces. I finished plying it and washed it yesterday, so it's finally ready to show off.

The fiber came in two little batts, without much blending between colors. I spun each batt from lightest color to darkest. The way I plied this, the yarn goes from that tan/dark brown to a pink/green, and then back to the tan/dark brown at the end. I think it will probably end up being a cowl (I know, I just said I don't need more cowls). I thought about a hat, but I don't really want the three stripes of color on a hat, I don't think.

Fiber content: Merino, SW Merino, Polwarth, BFL, Tussah silk
Seller: Dripping Fiber Studios (KaleidoscopeKim on Etsy)
Colorway: Dead Until Dark
Weight: Not sure yet, but from eyeballing, maybe about a worsted
Yardage: Approx. 197

Neither cat would let me get many pictures without a face or tail... This one got one of each :)
