Roving to Yarn

More Spinning. I love watching how the color changes from roving to yarn. This one started off with chunks of blue, maroon and shiny silk. 20130414-133310.jpg


It ended up looking purple. (Especially if you see it from a distance.)




The next one had all kinds of colors mixed in. Greens, blues, grays...




It also had an intermediate step that I usually try to avoid while spinning. This step was called "Lily goes nuts." I thought she was being a good puppy chewing on one of her toys. Turns out she got a hold of a chunk of roving and tried to pull it apart. Much like she does with stuffing in stuffed animals.



Turned out alright in the end. This one might even become a "Lilliput Yarn." Seems fitting since she even "helped" make it!
