Wow -- this is my first time starting a Fiber Friday!
This is my most recent yarn. I call it "Secret Garden."
It's 204 yards of a very overspun thick and thin single. My son and I oven dyed the roving with Wilton's. This was my first time using a black & white roving from Sheep Shed Studio and the black stripe felted TERRIBLY during dyeing which made for a challenging spin. It was hard to draft the black wool, which made for the thick and thin, but I loved how the colors turned out so much I didn't mind. I'm very happy with the yarn, and think maybe I'll make it into a hat. With the black and white roving, next time I'll spin it first and dye it later to avoid the felting.
Here's another view of the yarn:
And a view of the predrafted roving before I spun it:
I can't wait to see what other lovely yarns you all have this week!
ETA: I hung the yarn from our silly swinging gnome, b/c it was the only sunny spot in the yard when I wanted to take pics. It also cracks me up, because it looks like he's in a nest of yarn.
