Ladies and gents, I present to you, hand-spun, Kool-Aid dyed and skeined, my very first yarn! Roving and drink mix were kindly provided by AKknitter, my SP from the fall/spooky SP round on knitty.
I've learned a lot from this skein. There's some roving left, but I couldn't wait to see the finished results. Yes, the dye job is uneven, but now I know to set the twist before dyeing. Scrunched-up parts don't soak up dye. Duh!
This little skein actually had to be soaked twice. The first time around, I forgot that you need to add weight to the bottom to set the twist. I got it wet again and put a large towel through the bottom. Et voila, she is done!
