I normally spin to sell so all the lovely yarn I make and want to keep goes to other people.  So I decided to make some for myself, and I am going to make a felted bag with it afterwards! 

To make a change, I decided to spin the natural merino then paint it afterwards so I could control the colours a bit.  It is inspired by goldfish in lovely blue water.  I was really pleased with the end result and can't wait to start making the bag with it!  What do you think?:

I need to get off the spinning boards.

Anyway, I like the effect of the painting. Have fun with the bag!

That is gorgeous!   I love goldfish, and the colors definitely bring that to mind.

Thanks for all your lovely comments!  I was really pleased with it. 

Caedara: I didn't mean to steal your name, I have always been putting blue and orange together for years and when this yarn was dry it really looked like goldfish!  I love these colours.

Here are a couple of pics of the yarn knitted up, prior to felting which I plan to do this weekend sometime! 


I think I prefer the purled side, although I do love the smooth knitted side too.  I can't decide...what do you think?
