[spinning] Cotton Candy

Having nearly two weeks off from work for the holidays afforded me much needed time to reacquaint myself with spinning. It had been a couple months (or more) since I spun anything. I started with some wool that I had dyed with food coloring:

Barfy Cotton Candy


Not that pretty but the the finished, two-ply yarn is:

Cotton Candy


Much better. This ended up being uneven, thick-and-thin, and bulky. I'm okay with that because this was just to get used to pre-drafting, the feel of drafting at the wheel, treadling with even speed, etc.

More spinning to come. MUCH more...

I love how the colors worked out in the yarn. Very pretty!
