First Order



This isn't it, but the colours are close. I took this in Amsterdam in April. These are my favourite flowers. Anyway the yarn is off to knitting friend Sharon. We are having a fiber day tomorrow. Knitting, spinning, carding. All things wooly. She was interested in something orange with a bit of colour thrown in.

I dyed the fleece in three different colours and drafted them together as I went. I must say it took a lot longer than the normal rainbow dyed roving, but I really like the effect. I used Ashford Rainbow Dye pack plus a little Cushing in the orange for a brilliant colour. Worked out pretty well.

Love the orange...my new favourite colour! It really is gorgeous yarn. Something for me to aspire to.
