I had a few leftovers from a spinning workshop I held recently. I made sure workshop participants took away all the roving I’d dyed and braided and all the batts I’d made, so they could practice at home. And we made more batts as part of the workshop and that was fun too. But there were little bits left from demonstrating techniques. Sometimes leftovers are the best part of a meal, and I really enjoyed spinning up the pink and purple end of a piece of roving, and corespinning one gloriously red batt–merino, silk and green sparkly stuff. And that meant I found the neglected bobbins of eucalyptus-dyed merino that I had blended with some commercially dyed merino/silk in golds and reds. So those singles finally got plied. It’s nice to be back at the wheel. It’s been too hot for dyepots!
