I was jumped by a new hobby while at Estes. I had been curious about spinning for awhile, but seeing all the people there spinning away kind of tipped the scale.
I took one of the two balls above and dyed it purple. Then I spun both ‘balls’ of roving separately and plyed them together. The end result? 11 yds of super bulky. lol.
I had more purple than white, so I plyed the last of that together and got about 2 yds of purple super bulky yarn, it’s the purple streak you can see in the picture.
The yarn is ridiculously overspun but I love it anyway.
I didn’t even take a picture of this fiber before I turned it into yarn.
The base is Rundle Roving from Rocky Mountain Dyeworks in the Coral Root colourway. I got about 50 yds of a thick and thin super bulky.
This one is very well balanced and I’m looking forward to turning it into something soon.
I would have more to show but the Canada Post strike has interrupted my main means of yarn acquisition. 😦
Katie doesn’t care about the spinning, she’s just hanging out.
