I'm very proud of making this on my first try and I cant wait to crochet things out of it Cheesy I got the roving at  my local yarn store and I couldn't read her hand writing on what type of wool it was but its wool.  Dyed with kool aid this morning.

My favorite it the orange pink and yellow one, I want to make another batch of that and make myself a scarf. As of the other two I have no idea what to make with them yet, there each only about 35 yards so its not much to work with unless I make more lol.

With kool-aid! Now that's a neat and cheap way to dye things. Turned out great!

Thanks:D anyone have suggestions on what to do with it? Should I just make some more of all of them so I actually can make something lol. I was thinking maybe just make a bunch of flowers and sew them all on an off white afghan or something but a hat in the purples would be cool too.
