but the rule is no buying what you dye for knit one. rats!
besides, they need it more than me. the roving basket is not just sparse, but also mostly red. these two were dyed in crockpots in my bathtub on friday evening. both are merino. i might should dye something for myself some day soon so i won’t be so jealous :)
in the meantime, i’ve been spinning up random bits and bobs of roving. here’s one skein, probably destined for the shop. it’s 2 part bfl, 1 part corriedale and silk. it will start or end with the dark color, transition, then be all light blues and greens.
