WIP-it Wednesday, with a FO thrown in...

...another finished yarn!

This is Passion Fruit, a camel-silk from Greenwood Fiberworks:

Passion Fruit handspun

and a close up:

Passion Fruit handspun, close up

Started 4/5/14;
Finished 4/13/14;
Camel-silk top (4oz) from Greenwood Fiberworks;
214 yds chain-ply, 13 WPI

It's a little under-spun in some places, partially due to the fact that I can't see well enough through these glasses. I might run it through again to even it out, or maybe not. Since it's not for a specific project, I could just let it sit until I decide to used it for something.

With the finish, let's look at the WIPs list.
