Browns, oranges, purples, yellows....wait...did she say yellows!! Now you all know I'm not a "yellow" person, but sometimes, mixed with other colors, I like it fine ;)
As you can see below this braid was gradiently dyed. Meaning larger sections of colors, usually not a lot of colors.
I divided the braid into 4ths and spun 2 sections on each bobbin.
Then I commenced to plying the 2 singles together
My plan to have the singles match together didn't go too well. Had a few issues with a yellow section(figures huh!)..my fault as I couldn't get some of it to ply. Had to put a new drive band on my wheel, then the rest went fine.
I did get some sections to match, not sure how stripey it'll be, but that's ok. I love this picture!
I would have navajo plied it, but my yardage would have been really low! I'm still not a consistently thin spinner with my singles...they go from lace to heavy worsted LOL!
Just enjoy the lovely colors!
See, more matchy sections...
oops! disregard the lovely twine there! I use a cone of kitchen twine for my drive bands and tying my skeins. So cheap and multi-useful!
The whole smooshy, soft, squishy skein! The softest BFL I've ever spun ;)
