Teal with a Twist

I got this roving from a friend of mine who didn't realize she had bought superwash wool to felt with. Her poor luck was my good luck.

However my luck ran out when washing the yarn to set the twist. I did not have it tied together to prevent tangling so I had to untangle it. Then I did the same thing again when drying it so I had to untangle it again! So let my mistake be a lesson to you. Make sure you tie up your skein in several places so that doesn't happen to you. I still love how it turned out.

I ended with about 200yards 2ply worsted weight yarn that is only a little unbalanced. I like the colors of this and thought at first it would be a crocheted hat. Now my plan is fingerless mitts.
