A progression of spinning photos...

When I dyed up some fibre for the Fibre Shindig I was completely in love with Camping. These colors are so me! 

It was also my first time spinning Fine Shetland!

I had dyed up a bunch of braids with long repeats so you can choose to spin it as a gradient or you can spin I'm with long color repeats.

I chose to spin mine as a gradient, so I separated each color and spun each completely before moving to the next. Here's a progression of my spinning journey 😄

The roving was dyed marbled in shades of each color which when spun up gives it a semi solid look for each color 😍 

I ended up with about 241yards out of 4.2oz of fibre. I'm debating what to knit with it 😄

I have a few other braids that are dyed with long repeats.

Happy Spinning 😄
