The sky was really this color - solid heavy cloud cover in gorgeous brilliant yellow. We've been having heavy rain all day courtesy of tropical storm Lee's remnants and this visual treat happened just as we were going in for supper. I"m glad we got to enjoy it.
In other news, I got a box of roving from Zeilinger's today. They are so nice to work with. I sent this with the hope that it would be done in time for them to bring it with them on the truck to the Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival. They called to say they could do it, or even send it earlier. I said I was torn - save some shipping money by having them bring it, or spend the UPS fee and have it earlier so I could spin samples of the new colors. They offered to ship a pound of each as soon as it was done so I could spin it. Minimum shipping cost but I have what I need - I can have my roving and spin it too!
Sssppiiiiinnnn ...... Uusssssssss........
The white and gray are both Cotswold. The dark brown is crossbred lambs' wool. I've put dyed silk with each in contrasting colors. It's *supposed* to spin up and show blips of color. I've started on the white and while I wish I'd added a little more color it's spinning like a dream. And the gray feels soooo smooth and soft. Whee! I can spin some every night and I should get all three sample skeins plied and washed in time.
Homework that I really WANT to do!
