Dying and Spinning!

This weekend I decided I MUST get back to those things I love, even if it means virtually no sleep. Here is some wonderful wool I got through my Yankee Fiber Friends group. It was white and I used natural dyes to change it to this pretty blue. Then I spun it and used 2 plying techniques. I did a double ply with a majority of it and then I decided to try Navajo plying with about 1/4 of it - mostly because you can do that off one skane and it made it easier on me :) Now I have to decide what to make with it. The rules are that I can add anything to the project EXCEPT more wool. I'm thinking a mini felted purse although i couldn't come close to the beautiful felted purses we sell of Sarah's Satchels...Maybe a hat...
