These are the rolags I carded yesterday. I spun them up today and the yarn is now soaking in the bathroom sink, I’ll try to get a picture of it tomorrow. These pictures just don’t show how much sparkle and all the subtle colors in the rolags. There is a warm orange, copper, shades of brown and flecks of green, orange, purple, blue, red and gold sparkle, plus the natural colored soy silk.
You can see some of the color here, there’s a bit of green in the upper right corner and I can see a few flecks red. I’m still not completely used to the hand cards. I’ve been watching this YouTube video over and over, it’s the best description of how to use hand cards that I’ve found.
I’m all distracted today. I’ve been doing my annual day before Halloween watching of Sleepy Hollow (on Halloween I watch Bram Stoker’s Dracula) and the phone won’t quit ringing. We had the same robo call three times by 9am (thanks NRA!) and two more from the RNC, my cousin came by, people kept calling for my dad, it’s just been nuts. Sleepy Hollow is 105 minutes, according to IMDB, and it took almost three hours to watch it. And now I’m running behind schedule and I have a ton of things I need to do by 5pm so I need to go do them. Happy Halloween.
