Isn't it just Wonderful?
So now everything is dry and not felted.
It has been re-skiened and braided. (yup I figured it out)
I am pleased and so is my grand-daughter. (now renamed Laughaholic as I see from her brand new membership to Ravelry)
Here's the promised pics of the finished dye job. Yarn and Fibre look great! I on the other hand still have grey roots! (Should have done my hair while I was at it!)
The first pic is Laughaholic's first handspun. Not a bad job of it I think. Looks better than my first did! The second pic is the blue one with beads. It has already been cast on. She has decided to make a lacy scarf from it. The third pic is her handpainted skein.
See the big smile on her face.
These ones are mine.....
First pic is two ply Shetland laceweight/fingering, the second pic is about a worsted weight three ply
The third and fourth pic, below, are before and after pics of what used to be grey Icelandic wool rovings. Notice it's not grey anymore! :D
Then we have the rovings.
Pic one, two and three, quite self explanatory.
