Ok! Here's mine! Finally. I dyed this with easter egg dyes, except the blue which is wiltons. (the easter egg dye in blue didn't take so well) I am looking forward to finishing the yarn. The colors alternate... But here is the roving.

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

ooooh Id love to see the yarn when youre finished with it. I like the pink and the blue. not as much a fan of yellow (I like bright yellow, though). Very pretty! What kind of roving is it?

wool from ebay? I don't really know, but I have loved spinning it. The yellow is almost a peachy color. I like how it turned out. I'll be posting the yarn once I get it spun up. I'm almost done, only two little roving balls left!
Watching the colors come together has been great, I think I might love this yarn the most!

I haven't been to this thread in awhile and I missed all of the awesome dyed roving! I must see it once it's spun up too!

I dyed some of my handspun with wilton's dyes last night and I LOVE the way it turned out.

 those are two seperate skeins but they are hanging together to dry. I think I am going to make a garden scarf from them.

I have gotten so into spinning and dyeing that I haven't knit or crocheted anything in months. It's so sad Sad

I know I did it with crochet when I first learned too. I just get so excited about knowing a new craft Smiley
