Quick update on the dyeing experiments mentioned in this post. Remember the dyed spindle cops? well I knitted the calais shawl from them :-)

spindle spun calais shawl

this prompted me to try a different colour scheme

spin,knit,dye 040

spin,knit,dye 035

progress so far ...

spinning 134

I'm loving the randomness of the colours and plan to try this with a 2 ply next, when I have chance to spin one :-)

Love the colours that you are getting.

Both shawls are delicious -- I want to knit them both!

I'm still a relatively new spinner (started a year ago, but injuries have kept me back, sniff) and one of the things I really want to knit is a shawl with some beautiful BFl from a local farm. Now I know where to start looking...
