I’ve been spinning up my color tests at the farmer’s market. I can usually get about two 2oz rovings spun and plied in one 4-hr farmer’s market. I finally got around to taking pictures of the finished yarn. Some I’m happy with, some need to be tweaked a bit.
This was my first shot at purple which turned out to be more of a blue-violet. Still very nice, so I’ll probably use this colorway again.
I also finally took photos of the finished yarn from the green roving I posted here. It still reminds me of Brobee!
This last I’m still not happy with. It’s supposed to be orange, but the dark orange ended up being too brown. There’s too much contrast in the finished yarn for what I want.
Aside from this last, I’m gotten most of my primary & secondary monochromes about where I want them – now I need to work on some multicolor rovings. What I really need is a few undisturbed hours with a lot of light, eyedroppers, paintbrushes, my jars of dye, and some sheets of paper! I guess I won’t be working on those until September when Scarlett goes back to school. Oh well – at least it’ll be cooler by then!
