Just spinning here today, folks.
I spun up the first two lots of my hand-dyed corriedale.
The colours aren’t quite true – both of the dyed skeins are more brown in real life. How *do* people get colour-accurate pictures? I suppose a better camera would help; alas, I’d rather spend the money on fibre. The rust yarn is about 150 yards, worsted-ish weight, and the green one is a little thinner and about 196 yards (both are 4 oz and 2-ply). I’m quite happy with the colours after being spun up, actually.
And check out these cool tags; my cousin gave me them at Christmas. Seems like a waste to just use them for myself, so I’m going to pick up some plainer tags just to label the yardage and such.
I also spun up that sherbet-coloured merino, but I couldn’t get a good picture tonight – I’ll put one up tomorrow. In the meanwhile, I’ve dyed some more of the merino. This stuff is seriously soft; I think I need to buy some more (plus it’s a good deal)!
This one is primary colours with a bit of the in-between colours (just a touch of green and purple). I love that it actually turned out bright!
This one is more red in real life; it’s dark pinks, reds, and purples. I quite like it, even if it does look kind of like a bruise.
That’s it for now! Next question is, of course – what do I do with all this handspun?
