I was finally able to spend some time on my new blending board this past week. I’d been saving roving scraps for a while, not because I had plans for them, but because someday I might have a use for them. They were perfect practice bits and here’s what they became:
My First Rolags
Not very pretty, but I’m itching to spin them. This will be anther first, I’ve never spun from a rolag.
TOMORROW WE DYE
For some reason I’ve gotten into the habit of doing my wool dyeing on Sundays. I have really nice Rambouillet wool that’s already carded and I have some green acid fast dye that I’ve not done anything with. Tomorrow will be more or less a dye experiment. Since my first attempt at space dyeing was a complete flop, I may give it another try, but then, again, I may just use the old drop it into the dye and don’t move it around too much method. That technique seems to work best for me. Results to follow…..
