I finally finished staining and oiling my new jumbo sliding hook flyer, so this week was a big spinning week for me! I hadn't spun in a while, so I had a lot of fun.
I started the week with a small color study. I took this merino roving and split it in half. I then plied one half with a solid white merino, and the other half with solid black merino. I was pleasantly surprised at how vibrant the colors are against the black. I had assumed they would get kind of lost.

For this one I hand carded a multi-green coopworth wool with grey alpaca and a bit of white merino, then spun it woolen.
And, I have a skein of a peachy/reddish merino drying!
