more spin, less twist

i tried my hand at hand painting last nigt, then spun the roving up this morning.  curses!  i forgot to take a pic of the roving!  next time….

the yarn didn’t turn out at all as i had expected, but now that i’m knitting with it all of the colors are coming back and in a soft self striping sort of way.  once i have a bit more knitted on the slipper socks, i’ll post pics.

i spun this one yesterday, then kettle dyed it today.  i think it turned out beautifully!

i’m wondering if there’s still a bit too much twist in it…. we’ll see when i start knitting with it, i guess!  i’m feeling much more comfortable at the wheel already and i’m glad to see my singles evening out!

sometimes predictable can be a bad thing.
