I can spin a rainbow

My rainbow dyed singles from the other day have become wool.

All wound up into centre pull balls for plying.

Curly-wurly straight off the bobbin.

After a nice wee wash’n’dry. I must use these scales to photograph wool more often.

What to do with approx 1.5 oz (my scales don’t do metric) of rainbow dyed wool?

Nice DOF right? (More on that note to come….)

    You are so clever! Must be really satisfying to dye the wool, spin it and then knit it up all yourself. Yes, the last photo is great – have you been finding new buttons on your camera?

    I meant to ask – what method did you use for dyeing the wool? I’m intrigued by koolaid dying and wondering if Raro would work the same way.

    Beyond nice. I’m desperate to know the micorwave method! Have you gotten any mail? 🙂

    Lovely can’t wait for our dying session. I have dreams of green or red. Maybe blue. Deep colours with light highlights…
