Show and Tell

Remember this roving that I bought a few months back?

Lindy had fun this weekend making this:

Here are the singles before plying.  I had never spun color before.  It was fascinating watching the colors blend and wondering what it would look like in the end.

Here is the skein....4 oz....100% Merino...444yds...prebath!

And some close ups!

Yum!

Lindy and you are awesome. I am always amazed at how subdued the yarn turns out when the fiber looks bright. And 444 yards is tons! I hope you get tons of roving for christmas!

PS) would you mind sending me your snail mail? Your on my christmas card list. :)

I just love how that turned out....I can't tell at all based on what the roving looks like! It's all a very fun mystery to me :-)

Sometime in the near future, I need to get out my wheel. Your enthusiasm is contagious. And the yarn you are spinning is beautiful!
