Merino and BFL Roving

Posted on: 04/29/2010

I experimented with merino and  bfl roving and dyeing some new colorways this past week, and managed to spin a small skein of Battlestar blues even!   I am looking forward to playing with more deep blues.  Please throw any color ideas you would like to see at me.  I played with blue, rust, pink and green’s this week.  Pink is my favorite.  Seems I keep running into a green wall, (same with my yellow..but I know how to fix that..green is a big challenge for me) lots more work to be done. I hope you enjoy the pics..don’t forget to say hi to be entered in my give away!  Bye bye..April!  C’mon May! :))
