What are you most proud of? That I got the exact look I was going for, and that I'm getting the hang of using my new spinning wheel. It makes things go so much faster than spindling. It's 462 yds, fingering weight Colors: turquoise, vermillion, chartruse, burnt orange and golden rod yello

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I split the roving in half to get more color variations in the roving. When dyeing I used each color twice except for the turquoise.

love the colours and the end result, if you Navaho plied this yarn you would have got a completely different yarn, worth a thought

Thank you!! Yes I agree but that just wasn't the look I was going for with this particular project. I plan on using that plying technique for a future project!
