This weekend's handspun

Here are some pics on what I've been working on over the last week. I took 3 different rovings that I had handpainted (1 BFL and 2 Merino or visa versa, can't remember), split them into very thin strips, then pre-drafted them together to help the colors blend. It was a BIG pain in the butt and I'll probably never do it again, but I am happy with the results. I wanted a handspun that had a little bit of color but was very muted for a hat that I will be knitting up. Colors are pink, purple, teal, brown, and blue. I hope to begin the hat knitting this evening.
