These two skeins represent my attempt to spin dyed roving into color runs, bottom skein, and to delib-
erately mix to the colors to eliminate color runs, top skein. As you can see, there is no appreciable difference, which means I don't know that the heck I'm talking about. I've decided that to really scramble the colors, I'd have to break the skein into short color segments and alternate them, as though I were spinning from dyed locks. That doesn't seem fun and I'd rather scramble colors when I'm dyeing them.
What you're looking at here is five bags full of processed roving. This has been donated to our guild to help us raise the balance in our treasury. I haven't been through the bags yet, as the natural light was waning when I got home with them. I did a bit of peeking and can see that I'm going to be spending quite a bit of money in support of our guild.
I promise to report on what I've read about getting even selvedges, but now I'm going to watch the classic, Better Off Dead.
