Take Two

While I was juggling the previous two skeins of yarn, I went ahead and dyed two batches of roving in the oven. Here’s the first one. It’s basically a second batch of the “Heather” colorway I did earlier in Thistles and Heather. I used brighter primaries for this one, so the colors are a little bolder. The roving is the same Romney mix I used for the first batch. I had to dig really deep into my stash to find it. All the recent purchases sort of got piled on top of it.

And if you can’t tell, I’ve discovered how to braid roving, and I’m really enjoying it.

The other batch of roving was thrown together at the last minute. I had extra yellow and red dye, so this is what came out. The Wensleydale I used for it blows me away because you’ll think you’re holding a ton of it, but when you weigh it, it’s only an ounce or so. This whole braid is only an ounce and a half, and I had to stuff it into the pan on top of itself. Of course, I was using the smaller pan . . . but anyway. It’s very light and airy.
