I couldn't resist any longer. I'm going to learn to handpaint roving just for this swap. Hooray for being forced to learn a new craft!

Thanks! I found a good tutorial here, but it's always tough to say what difficulties will be discovered when I actually try it, as opposed to just reading about it. Everything seems so much easier in theory than in practice.
