Spinning Around Til I Fall Down
After finishing the mass of white Falkland, I had to do something with color. This is what I did this weekend. On the right are two bobbins of 5+ ounces total of a rainbow dyed Columbia lamb's wool. I sorted it out into warm and cool colors and then spun it roughly in rainbow order, hoping that when I ply it, I can get a general blending of color. On the left is 2+ ounces of Rendezvous At Dusk, half of a Kitchen Sink Batt. It is kind of an overall smokey violet but there is silk in it that is all different colors of green, blues and other purples, plus there is some gold Angelina in it - just for a little sparkle. I'm spinning this laceweight and the other I did in my heavier weight of spinning. I've started on the second half of the Kitchen Sink Batt and once it's spun I'll ply the Columbia. It was so much fun spinning something that wasn't white!
