Palaces Out of Paragraphs

After the news that Huckleberry Knits, one of my favorite Northwest-y dyers is no longer going to be dying, I chose my final braid of her fiber from my stash to spin up. I purchased this the last time I went to OFFF with E and Leah. This is one of Scarlet’s Hamilton colorways, from Eliza’s song Burn.

The braid is Targhee/Silk – 75% American Targhee and 25% silk. The colors go from a warm cocoa brown to a medium olive green with bits of teal weaving through it, some buttery pondscum yellow, and a lovely blue teal. A little white is in the core here and there.
