From ho-hum to WOW!~

so I in my foolishness attempted to dye some roving without the Dyewizard's help. Wrong idea -my roving was dull and uninspired.Lucky for me,  Jared stepped in and overdyed the roving for me :)
Can you see the difference LOL

Good thing I can spin .......

 and it doesn't need to be dyed as the colours are stunning :) Although leftover white does look very nice with some colour added to it.  Leftover unexhausted dye  from the dyepot provided some lovely pastel colours for blending into wool later on.

HUGS all
Kim and crew!

Maybe. we'll see when the pattern arrives but is it not stunning??  I'm thinking all natural handspun wool from various breeds.  We'll see......

Knitting and Spinning cause thats what I do

Too cold to go outside now -we actually have snow!  So I'm doing what I love to do spinning wool and knitting it into various items :)  It keeps my mind busy as we await the results of the next level of speech competiton that Jared is participating in. He's representing his class at the next level and results should be given today!
