On to brighter things….

So I finished spinning the springtime roving from two weeks ago. I ended up with a 49 gram ball and one itty, bitty ball.

I ended up with a little ball because it was leftover after I doubled plied the yarn.

I wasted no time jumping into the roving I dyed last week. I started with yellow roving and added red and blue to the roving. It turned out somewhat bright and just plain odd!

The rolags….

On the drop spindle…

I still am amazed at the difference between the dyed roving and the spun yarn. The color transformation is astounding!   I hope the results will be about the same–approximately 50 grams.
