In A Blue Kind Of Mood

I often find that unintentionally and unconsciously I'm drawn to a particular colour when I'm crafting.  I won't notice till I look at my ravelry page, for example, and then suddenly there's a big block where everything is the same colour.  Today I was taking photos of what I've been up to, and it's all blue :)

Pattern: Rapunzel's Tower by Becky Greene - rav link:  www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rapunzels-tower)
Yarn: Regia Regia Color 4 ply

Not much to say about these other than I'm really enjoying the pattern.  These are a lot of fun to knit.  I made the cuff a bit short and am going to have quite a bit left over, but that's not a bad thing.  I can make some more socks or mitts with the leftovers and continue the blue theme.

And this is some light blue merino (from Scottish Fibres) that I'm spinning.  That ball is 25g and there's another 75g there to spin.  I like to spin in 25g increments then each plied skein is 50g.  Nice round numbers.

I'm trying to spin the merino quite thin, and the fibre is so soft and fluffy that it's quite easy to draft it out.  My plan was to barber-pole it with a organgey-brown that I've already spun into singles, but the blue is coming out so fine that they may end up being different thicknesses.  I'll spin up all the blue and then decide :D
