Easter Egg Singles: warm colors
I've spun the singles for the first Easter Egg Woolie sock. I was going to go ahead and Navajo ply it before I spun the second sock's singles (say that five times fast), but then I realized that if I went ahead and spun another bobbin for the second sock, I wouldn't have to set up my wheel for plying twice. It was a moment of rational thinking in my otherwise irrational world. Not that setting up the wheel for plying is difficult, it just takes a little time. I've been reading the Color in Spinning book more and have some other ideas for the cool color socks from my Easter Egg dying. I have to say, that book just blows my socks off. I have taught color theory to quilters before and I'm comfortable with most of the concepts used with color, but wow! She (Deb Menz) has soooo much information in that book! The book is definitely worth the price for the pictures alone: total eye candy, but if you're a spinner, even if you never want to dye your own fiber, you'll still learn things that you can use to make your colors more interesting. Sorry to go on and on, but its just such a great book! I'm going to try to motivate myself to work on my Peacock Feather Shawl today, I know you all can't wait to see it (said with much sarcasm).
