I was reading a post (here) on how to dye roving with easter egg dyes and since I had 100 grams of lincoln lamb roving which I bought when we picked up my spinning wheel…..I HAD to try it!
Excellent, Easy, with Awesome results!
I love it. Can’t wait to spin it!
I’ve been spinning the second ply for my SW Merino from SakinaNeedles and I’m aiming for a very thin yarn…wondering if maybe I can enter the spinalong for April after all…
Either way…this is going to make some beautiful light weight yarn! Another thing I cant wait to see finished 🙂
Jeanie is coming along nicely…I finished a couple repeats today. It’s an easy project to pick up and put down because the pattern is pretty simple once you get used to it. I always mark my rows, with pencil, in the margin, mind you…
Yesterday, we woke up to a LOT of snow. They’re calling for another 10 to 20 cm today! Enough, I say 🙂 I mean, really, it IS almost April!
I finished another skein from the ‘mystery roving’ I have in blues/greens. This one ended up more the weight I’ve been aiming for. A good yarn for socks I think! I have 362.5 metres and the wpi is 22 🙂
Here you can kind of see the size against the paper clip…
Now I’m kicking my ass for starting the superwash merino I’m spinning. There is a ravelry only spinning contest that I want to enter but since I would have to use SakinaNeedles Fibre…I’m out of this month…no money for such things right now. Next time I guess 🙂
