I've started cycling again and can you see the HUGE GRIN ON MY FACE? I rode this past weekend with my family and it was just awesome-enjoying the sunshine, talking together, and just thanking God for the blessings in my life while pedaling along the Boise River. Speaking of blessings, I saw this sunrise the other morning.
Cormo and kid mohair nearby so I started carding those together, blending the brilliant blue with the soft turquoise. That singles yarn made me wonder what it would look like plied with a Merino singles that I had spun using a top that I dyed using varied concentrations of turquoise, soft blue, and black dyes. The result of that plied yarn was knit up as a tam. I love how the colors blended together and I need to add this method to my dyeing workbook to remind myself to try this again.
