Dessert Bloom Yarn

Worsted Weight, 139 yds, 3 1/8 oz (90 g), 12 wpi

This yarn, in shades of raspberry, sage, and scotch, was spun from beautifully prepared Corriedale-cross roving from CJ Copec Creations. It was spun during the Winter Olympics.

Next during the Olympics, I spun two skeins of bulky weight, to be sure I still could. For those of you who do not spin, the typical tendency is for spinners to progressively spin finer and finer yarn while becoming unable to go back to spinning bulkier weights. My interest and goal is to spin between Dk weight and super bulky yarns at will.
