like a record baby

have done a little spinning this week and have been saving it up to show off :)
no names as yet,
theres this: tried a bit of navajo plying and though its a bit unbalanced i like it very much. used to be this. the coliour intensity is just gorgeous :) 50g, bout 70 metres
this one used to be this. 50g, 100 metres
and this one used to be this. when plying i actually managed to have my bobbins empty about with 2 metres difference which was exciting. its actually more purple-ish than this. its actually quite deep turquoise-y blues and deep purples. 50g about 100 m
and that be it for now i guess. oh i have more stuff on ebay, this may become a weekly thing. nice and gratifying that people will pay to own stuff i've dyed ;)

knit on

    That is abolutely bloody amazing. I wish I could do it. Do you use a wheel or a spindle and is it very difficult?
    Really beautiful colours and so soft and silky looking.

    Query - do you ship to Canada? And have you put this yarn on ebay yet? The deep turquoise-y blues and deep purples one? I would almost fly to Australia it is SO GORGEOUS!!! Just wondering....

    Sigh - you are just too clever by half, Spidey. Very ultra splendiferously gorgeous!
