More green yarn

There have been a lot of photos lately in the Free World and I'm sure it all loads on the computer slowly but I really can't help myself. I'd rather look at pictures of yarn than read about yarn, so I assume the same goes for others.

This roving here had a lot of yellow and blue with a bit of orange. I dyed it with Wilton's buttercup, delphinium, and copper. It's interesting how much green came to the surface though.

Lesson of the day= blue + yellow = green. Oh yeah.

This yarn here is one of three I am submitting to the LA County Fair (with help from my new pal sopranospinner! Yay for us spinners who live in hot places!) Read her blog for a tale of our adventures one scorching Friday afternoon...

Pretty soon I will start showing off some knitting in addition to the spinning. There's only a day left in the Tour de France (and the Tour de Fleece) so I can slow down a bit on the spinning, though it's hard to imagine that will actually happen.

In other news, I am going to see Tom Jones tonight at the Hollywood Bowl. I keep thinking I'm going to make a joke about it not being unusual but I shan't stoop so low.

It was tempting...but it was too hot for any funny business.

Hello from CT!!! You can guess who told us about your site, and I want to tell you how great I think it is! I think you should make it into a magazine!
