Baby one ply - all spun up!

Shadow is making something for a new born, so I offered some homespun. Nothing like fresh, soft pure wool hand spun and hand knit next to a babies skin. Love it!
She wanted either orange, yellow or green. With the gorgeous green mountains all around me inspiring me every day how could I not dye some gentle green?
The end product is going to be a soaker so aran/bulky weight was the aim. I got 108 metres to 70g, should be enough for a newborn soaker.
Hope she likes it and it knits up well.
