Tour de Fleece 2013 - Dyeing more roving

Jean Chung2 Comments

DSC03964 I have a 2-wk trial and lots of deadlines coming up and sometimes don't have enough energy to spin at the end of the day. Like last weekend. I had a long (more like a full-day) meeting on Saturday so on Sunday, I spent few hours dyeing some rovings.

I just wanted some soft colors that I could spin and ply together. I only dye with 4 dye colors. I mix and match and control the absorption

Soft Cotton Candy? hehe Milkshake Colorway

Both are really yummy colors right? I'm so happy how the colors turned out. There's that piece of me that gets so satisfied when I pet the colors that totally get me.

 

Tour de Fleece update: plying began

So it seems like my blog is now more about spinning than knitting or designing haha. So the plying on the gray merino began.

So nice and fluffy-!!! It's n-plied and it is around sport weight but definitely has thicker spots.

My sis is visiting in town so things are more hectic in the house. Haven't seen her in months!  Well, Candy is happy. I wish mom were able to travel this time too, Candy would 've been so happy to see her. .

Well TdF will continue. ...
