More Spinning and More Yarn

I participated in a Spin Along on Ravelry from Boho Knitter Chic. The theme was Alice In Wonderland. My batt was based on "The Cheshire Cat" - in purples, rosy pink and creamy white. When I got the batt I decided to ply it with an organic cotton thread I had recently purchased specifically for the purpose of using for plying yarns or to use as the core thread on core spun yarns. The thread matched the batt perfectly. I don't have pics of the batt before spinning, sorry...I was too excited to get started and get it spun up!

Here's the finished yarn, which I called "Lush Lilacs" because it reminds me of the lilacs on the bushes that I used to pass as I walked up Cheyenne Canon to my grade school.
And on the wheel now, a merino and silk roving by Rogue Adventures in her Autumn in Oregon colorway.
I am spinning this nice and thin and will Navajo ply it to retain the color definition so it will look similar to Reggae on the River.

Oh, again, it's so happy!
I just love these spring colors. Especially on a dreary, rainy day.
