My younger daughter picked the colors for this, lots of blues/purples/pinks. Have I mentioned her bedroom is painted a deep purple on 2 walls and a strong turquoise on the other 2 walls? This is Emily through and through.
And this one? I think this is my favorite, it is just a hodgepodge of colors, all blending into just an amazing batch of roving that I'm itching to work on. One of the things I'm still working on, is to know what the finished yarn will look like after spinning it. This? I'm clueless but CAN'T wait to see!
After the fun of dyeing, Angela next introduced me to the wonders of working on a drum carder. I mainly spin combed top. I've had a few batts in the past but I never really liked spinning from them. I found them stiff and bit cumbersome so I just stuck with what I worked with the most, combed top. Well after this? I just may need to explore the world of drum carding. Because the stuff Angela helped me make is as soft as butter and I can't wait to work on it. I have several coils of this soft delicious stuff. We combined blues and green tossed in some gorgeous buttery Carmel with just a hint of sparkle. Have I mentioned I can't wait to spin this!
And why pray tell am I waiting to spin ANY of this? Because I'm plowing through ......
And I just got an email from Ginny of Fat Cat Knits, my order of, oh um, 8 pounds of fiber is on its way! Must keep spinning!
